Norrie Barcelona Open Quarters

Cameron Norrie’s run at the Barcelona Open came to an end in the quarter-finals with a defeat to Tomas Martin Etcheverry. The British number one, ranked 31st in the world, was narrowly edged out by the Argentine, who sits just one spot above him in the ATP rankings.

Despite a closely contested match, Etcheverry dominated the tie-breaks to secure a 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-1) victory.

In other quarter-final action, British number two Jack Draper was defeated at the Bavarian International by American third seed Taylor Fritz. Fritz staged a comeback after losing the first set to claim a 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-1) win. He will face Chile’s Cristian Garin, who upset German top seed Alexander Zverev with a 6-4, 6-4 victory.

Holger Rune of Denmark continued his quest for a third consecutive Bavarian International title with a straight-sets win over Switzerland’s Marc-Andrea Husler.

In Barcelona, Norwegian third seed Casper Ruud awaits Etcheverry after defeating Italy’s Matteo Arnaldi 6-4, 6-3. Meanwhile, Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas survived a thrilling encounter against Argentina’s Facundo Diaz Acosta, saving two match points before clinching a 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (10-8) victory.

Tsitsipas, the Monte Carlo Masters champion, will face either French 16th seed Arthur Fils or Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic in the semi-finals.
