"I've kept taking it one match a time" - Norrie after another Los Cabos final
Cameron Norrie reached the Los Cabos final one more and he'll get the chance to defend his trophy against Daniil Medvedev.
The final comes after a win over Felix Auger-Aliassime that saw Norrie break the curse of the Canadian who never lost to Norrie before. It was a tricky match and one that needed 3 sets to conclude with the victory of the Brit.
Speaking after the match, Norrie said:
“Especially winning last year, you want to come out and win the title, but [I’ve just] taken it one match at a time. It was a tough task at the beginning of the tournament and I got through a couple of matches. [Against] Felix today it was looking really tough, so I was really pleased with how I handled that today, especially after losing that second set.”
Expanding further on his struggles against Auger, Norrie added:
“Every time he just gets me and plays better than me, so I really wanted to win that one more than usual. I started off great and then Felix found his level in the second set, so I feel really good to get through that one, especially with the last game when he had a couple of chances to break me. I managed to hold on tight and tough it out."
On the final against Medvedev:
“It feels great to be in the final, and especially to set up a meeting with the No. 1 in the world in Daniil.”
