Norrie surges past top seed Rublev into San Diego Open final

Cameron Norrie will face either Grigor Dimitrov or Casper Ruud in the final of the San Diego Open on Sunday after seeing off Andrey Rublev in three sets.

Norrie is into his fifth final of the year after previously winning at Los Cabos and has defeated the in-form Russian in a brilliant comeback.

In the opener, it only looked to be going Rublev's way going 4-1 up in quick succession against the Brit and a break to love was enough to hand him the first set 6-3.

But roles were reversed as Norrie surged into a 5-2 lead in the second set as he looked to force a decider. He finally got through it as despite missing two set points on Rublev's serve and then going 15-40 down, he held to level at 1-1.

Again he held for a 3-1 lead in the third set after previously breaking and this proved pivotal as he edged through at 6-4 in the end taking that solitary break.
