Cameron Norrie’s brilliant run continues in Auckland

Cameron Norrie celebrates

Cameron Norrie is two wins away from his ATP Tour singles title after reaching the last four of the ASB Classic.

British No 2 Norrie, who played under the New Zealand flag until 2013, overcame American Taylor Fritz 7-6 (7-3), 6-3 in just over an hour and 30 minutes to reach his fourth ATP semi-final.

There were no breaks of serve in the opening set, which Norrie took via the tie-breaker, while the only break in the second set came in game eight.

Norrie, who lost his previous four semi-finals, will face world No 58 Jan-Lennard Struff for a place in the final after the German beat fourth seed Pablo Carreno Busta 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (6-8), 7-6 (9-7).

Philipp Kohlschreiber, meanwhile, upset second seed Fabio Fognini 6-3, 6-1 in one hour and five minutes to set up a clash with Tennys Sandgren, who ousted Leonardo Mayer with a 6-3 7-6 (7-5) win.
