Auckland | Norrie through to final
Cameron Norrie has reached his first ATP Final when he beat Jan-Lennard Struff 7-5 4-6 6-3 after nearly two hours of play which included a nervy period during the second set.
“Today I was a little bit zapped in the second set but I was like ‘look, it’s such an honour to be playing on this court where I grew up on this court’,” he said. “So I was just going to fight for every point and give my everything and I ended up getting out on top.”
He will take on Tennys Sandgren, who is also gunning for his maiden singles trophy, in Saturday’s final after the American beat Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-4 6-2 after 71-minutes.
