Cameron Norrie beats Andrei Rublev to reach the quarter-finals at Indian Wells

Britain’s top seed Cameron Norrie made his way to the quarter-finals at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells with a resounding victory over Andrey Rublev.

The 27-year-old needed just 75 minutes to see off the sixth-seeded Russian 6-2, 6-4 and claim his eighth straight win and one of his best performances of the season so far.

Nuri, who won the tournament in 2021 and beat world number two Carlos Alcaraz to achieve glory at the Rio Open last month, will face American Frances Tiafoe or Chilean Alejandro Tapelo in the quarter-finals.

In a match that started with three consecutive service breaks, it was the Briton who took the lead to lead 3-1, breaking for the third time to give himself a chance to close out the first set.

In fact, the world No. 12 converted all five of his break points when he completed a square-footed victory in the ATP Head2Head Series against 25-year-old Rublev with a score of 2-2.

Speaking after the match, Nuri said: “Off the ground, I was very solid.

“It was a bit cold today so I felt like I had more time on the ball. I played well in the big moments.

“Andrey is not easy to beat, so I was really happy to get in straight sets.”
