Norrie nails ATP Cincinnati win over Murray

Norrie nails ATP Cincinnati win over Murray

Cameron Norrie advanced to the third round of the ATP and WTA Cincinnati Masters on Wednesday by overcoming fellow Briton Andy Murray 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Norrie fired 39 winners to 37 for his three-time Grand Slam champion compatriot, with the pair now 1-1 in a sparse career series.

After they traded nervous early breaks before settling in, Murray broke again for 5-3 and served out the set a game later on his second chance.

The second set stayed as tight as the first, with Norrie breaking for a 5-3 lead and squaring the match with an ace on set point.

After dueling for more than two and a half hours, Norrie nosed ahead with a break for 5-4 as his passing shot kissed the baseline behind his opponent.

A game later, the ATP number 11 drove a forehand winner into the corner to claim victory on a first match point.
