Cameron Norrie qualifies for the second round in ASB Classic

Cameron Norrie from Britain qualified for the 2nd round of the ASB Classic with a rapid straight-sets victory against over Frenchman Beniot Paire in Auckland.

Cameron Norrie, who is 23 years of age, needed only fifty eight minutes to seal the win 6-3 6-2 against Paire, who is ranked 38 places ahead of World no.93 Cameron Norrie.

Norrie and his team mate Katie Boulter shocked Americans Frances Tiafoe and Serena Williams last week in the Hopman Cup, meets Joao Sousa of Portugal next.

Norrie, who plays for Britain, delivered reliable tennis, served well and hoped to stir up his play, while his rival was everywhere, to say it pleasantly, notwithstanding having a fast rest amid the match on Monday.

Paire has dependably been known as a player whose inspiration can swing fiercely amid a match and in this conflict he invested the majority of his energy seeming as though he had a lot of things he’d like to do as opposed to playing tennis.

Norrie said: “He came out and served really well, I was obviously a little bit nervous, the first time playing on that court and it was a bit windy too,”

“But I tried to enjoy it. I fought off some break points at the start of the first set and then managed to play a good game to break.

“I managed to out-tough him in the second and I freed up my forehand to be aggressive, to move the ball around the court, then I was quickly up to the drop shots he was playing, so a clean match I thought.”

Before the start of the Australian Open i.e. 14-January, it was one of the last event.

Norrie secured all 4 break points he went through against Paire and earned seventy nine percent of his first-serve points, crossing one time in 1st set and 2 times in the 2nd to seal the win.
