Cincinnati Masters: How to watch Cameron Norrie vs Borna Coric
Cameron Norrie’s Cincinnati Masters semi-final will round off the joint ATP and WTA schedules in Mason, Ohio.
Norrie will face Borna Coric for a place in the ATP 1000 Masters event in a match scheduled to start no earlier than 23:00 BST.
The British No 1 battled past Carlos Alcaraz to reach the Cincinnati Masters last four, whilst Coric downed Felix Auger-Aliassime.
However, before we get to that battle the WTA Tour takes centre stage.
Home favourite and midwest girl Madison Keys takes on two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova from 16:00 BST.
Kvitova has made Keys the favourite for the clash.
“She is a big hitter, but even from the forehand she can go a little bit different style sometimes, that she can put it a little bit upper with more topspin,” Kvitova told reporters after her straight-set win over Ajla Tomljanovic in the quarterfinals.
“She is moving very well. And especially the serve, she has a lot of variety of the serve. She can go for ace, she can have a kick, she has beautiful technique of the serve.
“Definitely she has more kinds of this stuff. Not like me, I don’t have nothing, I’m just boom-boom.”
The two are locked at 4-4 in their head to head and Keys expects another tight contest.
“I have obviously had some battles against Petra,” Keys said after beating Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina.
“Won some, lost some. It’s never easy to play her, especially later in a draw, meaning that she’s playing some very good tennis.”
In the other Cincinnati Masters semi-final, Sixth seed Aryna Sabalenka faces the red-hot Caroline Garcia.
Sabalenka and Garcia will get their clash underway at 18:00 BST.
Garcia says she won’t be taking Sabelenka lightly despite her double fault troubles this week.
“She’s in the Top 10 for quite a while now, always doing good in the big events,” Garcia said.
“You can always count on her. Doesn’t matter how many double faults she’s doing in one game, she is still here, still winning matches, not afraid to go for it.
“So it’s going to be a great challenge for me. I’m really looking for it. It’s a good challenge to play another aggressive player to see who can be the most aggressive and do the best they can.”
The men’s draw takes over from 20:00 BST when Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas clash in a blockbuster encounter.
Medvedev and Tsitsipas have shared some explosive moments on the tour in the past and their match is a tantalising prospect.
Tsitsipas set up the clash after battling past John Isner while Medvedev bested another American in Taylor Fritz.
“He’s one of the best,” said Tsitsipas.
“I’m going to have to play my game. Of course, an obstacle like Daniil is never easy, but I’m going to try to stay concentrated, try to approach my game in the most precise, best manner. I’ll let my tennis do the talking, and the rest will present itself if it’s something that I deserve.”
