Norrie Fights Back in Argentina Open
Cameron Norrie, a top British tennis player, put his best foot forward and avoided being beaten by Facundo Diaz Acosta as he made it to the quarter-finals at the Argentina Open by the skin of his teeth. Diaz Acosta, who currently holds the 191st spot, was serving during the match, but Norrie made a stand and eventually got nearer and nearer to him so he could close a crucial set in a tie-break to land a win of 4-6 7-5 7-6 (8-6) in the Argentine capital.
In the second set, Norrie had been broken twice as he trailed 3-1 and 5-3, but that didn’t stop him from bouncing back. Moreover, his persistence paid off as he put the ninth game under his belt along with three more after it. This is how he got an edge and swept Acosta’s victory off his feet during the deciding round.
Norrie is now going against Tomas Martin Etcheverry in the quarter-finals. Tomas is another Argentinian player that Norrie is going to face. Norrie kissed his win goodbye in the first round at the ATP 250 event, but he aided Great Britain in Columbia by reaching the Davis Cup Finals in February.
In another match, Djere from Serbia lost to the second-best tennis player in the world, Carlos Alcaraz, who needed that win after recovering from an injury. The Spaniard landed a win by scoring 6-2 4-6 6-2 in the Argentine capital. It was Alcaraz’s first victory and you can call his success a rebound since he was prevented from competing at the Paris Masters because of an abdominal injury. Another injury, which happened to be a leg injury, outed him from the Australian Open where he would have been the top tennis player if it weren’t for Djokovic.
Meanwhile, Matija Pecotic, who happens to be a part-time player with a full-time job in finance, has been knocked out of the Delray Beach Open in the States. The 33-year-old Croatian, had to ask for an additional day off as he took on Jack Sock. Marcos Giron turned out to be more than a match for Pecotic who lost the last 16 matches.
Cameron Norrie might be the next rising star in the world of tennis as he barely managed to defeat Acosta. His next opponent is Etcheverry which is another tough opponent. In other words, Norrie has another challenge to face if he’s looking to stay on top.
