Acapulco | Norrie upsets fourth seed

Cameron Norrie scored one of his best wins by defeating the fourth seeded Diego Schwartzman of Argentina to claim a place in the quarter-finals of the Mexico Open in Acapulco.

The world No 64 was down an early break in the opening set, but fought back to force a tie-break and put himself in the lead.

The pair then traded breaks in the second, with the Argentinian eventually claiming the edge to draw level, but it was Norrie who came out on top in the decider to seal a 7-6(5) 4-6 6-3 win.

The Briton will face Mackenzie McDonald in the quarter-finals, the American having himself dispatched a higher ranked opponent, Frances Tiafoe, the sixth seed, 6-7(7) 7-5 6-3.
