Cameron Norrie beat Dimitrov to reach Indian Wells Final claims it was the biggest win of his career.

British Tennis player Cameron Norrie beat Grigor Dimitrov in a brilliant game that ended 6-2 6-4 that took the Brit into his first Masters-level final at the BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells.

Norrie defeated 11th seed Diego Schwartzman to reach the last four, a win that guaranteed he would replace Dan Evans as the British No 1 and his run to the final in the Californian desert means he will rise to at least 17 in the updated rankings on Monday.

More importantly, Norrie is now just one match win away from the second, and biggest, title of his career, coming just three months after his first in Los Cabos in July. His final on Sunday night will follow the women’s final between Paula Badosa and Viktoria Azarenka.

“The match against Diego gave me a lot of confidence and to do it in that fashion, so I felt really good and really comfortable coming out today,” Norrie told Amazon Prime after reaching an ATP-Tour leading sixth final of the season, level with Novak Djokovic.

“I came out the exact same way, really physical, a lot of balls in the court and I was able to dictate with my forehand and pin him to the backhand side. I’m becoming more and more comfortable in Indian Wells.

“Biggest win of my career for sure, he made it difficult in the second set, he was slicing a lot and taking my legs away a little bit too but I managed to serve well in those games and get through them and I think it frustrated him a little bit so I think I had a really good game plan.”
