  • Briton into third round after 7-5, 7-5 win over world No 16
  • Norrie now faces Taylor Fritz of the United States

Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie pulled off one of the best wins of his career on Friday to advance into the third round of the Miami Open, overcoming 9th seed Grigor Dimitov 7-5, 7-5.

“It’s huge,” said Norrie. “He’s really good on the hardcourts. He’s had a good start to the year. It was such a physical match at the start. He came out really fast and he set the tone at the beginning of the match. Massive one for me and I take a lot of confidence from it.” Dimitrov opened the match playing with supreme confidence as he took an early break and then established a 5-3 lead. As the Bulgarian served for the set, he double faulted twice before Norrie swept to the net and snatched the break back with a bold volley winner.
