The Briton hits the semifinal in Indian Wells and finishes 12th in the Race 395 points behind Sinner
And now there is also Cameron Norrie in the final tussle for a place among the eight of the Nitto Atp Finals in Turin. It will be a tough fight in the last four tournaments before the appointment at the Alpitour shovel and the British victory in the quarterfinals of Indian Wells against Diego Schwartzman adds spice to the race. With the victory against the Argentine, Norrie is 2200 points, 395 points behind Jannik Sinner who left the scene yesterday. In the event of the final it would rise to 2440 and if he were to take home the Indian Wells trophy it would fly to 2840.
Inexplicable the performance of Diego Schwartzman who yesterday took Casper Ruud out of the way and today surrendered in 73 minutes, winning just two games in Norrie who, thanks to the semifinal reached, becomes no. 12 of the FedEx Race overtaking Karatsev and 130 points away from Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Norrie in the semifinals will face the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, number 28 of the world, who in the semifinals overturned 3-6 6-4 7-6 (2) the Polish Hubert Hurkacz, number 12 Atp in a two hours and 40 ‘long battle . In the third set, Dimitrov recovered from 4-2 to 5-5, but after losing his first serve in the tie-break he found the strength to overturn everything and win the match. There is only one precedent between Norrie and Dimitrov, on March 26 in the first round in Miami: the Briton won in two sets.
