John Isner dumped out of Lyon Open by Cameron Norrie
Cameron Norrie claimed his first win against a world top-10 opponent to dump John Isner out of the Lyon Open.
Norrie, the British number three, beat world number 10 Isner 7-6 (7/1) 6-4 to book a place in his first ATP Tour semi-final, where he will play Frenchman Gilles Simon.
Norrie, 22, had to work for it, though, saving all four break points he faced against big-serving Isner, who the Briton broke for the only time in the first game of the second set before easing to victory in 85 minutes.
Simon, meanwhile, fought back from a set down to beat Kazakhstan’s Mikhail Kukushkin 4-6 6-4 7-6 (7/5).
Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic overcame American Taylor Fritz 7-5 6-1 in the other quarter-final and will play Dominic Thiem or Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.
Top-seeded Austrian Thiem was locked at one set all with Spain’s Garcia-Lopez before play was suspended due to bad light.
