Cameron Norrie advances to Rio Open semis with gritty victory over Thiago Seyboth Wild

Posted : 24 February 2024

British tennis player Cameron Norrie advanced to the semi-finals of the Rio Open with a hard-fought victory over Thiago Seyboth Wild. Despite winning the first set comfortably in 30 minutes, Norrie faced a challenge in the second set, allowing the Brazilian to level.


However, the 28-year-old bounced back in the decider, securing a 6-1, 3-6, 6-2 win. Norrie, ranked 23rd, expressed pride in his fighting spirit in the humid conditions and looks forward to facing Argentine qualifier Mariano Navone in the semi-finals.


Defending champion Norrie acknowledged the physical challenges of the match but emphasized his satisfaction with the hard-fought victory. The British number one's triumph marked his first ATP Tour semi-final since May.


Norrie is set to compete against 22-year-old Argentine Mariano Navone in the upcoming semi-final, aiming to continue his successful run in the Rio Open. The tournament's semi-finals will also feature an all-Argentine clash between Francisco Cerundolo and Sebastian Baez.


Cameron Norrie's resilience and determination were evident in his post-match remarks, highlighting the significance of wins like these in his career. The Rio Open has witnessed Norrie join the ranks of Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz in reaching the semi-finals a year after winning the tournament.


 As the competition unfolds, tennis enthusiasts are eager to see if Norrie can secure another victory and potentially become the first two-time winner of the Rio Open.


Meanwhile, in the Los Cabos Open in Mexico, Casper Ruud emerged victorious against defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas, earning a place in the final. The Norwegian player will await the outcome of the match between top seed Alexander Zverev and Jordan Thompson to determine his opponent in the final showdown.
