Frances Tiafoe ends Cameron Norrie’s winning streak

Britain’s number one Cameron Norrie saw his eight-game winning streak halted by Frances Tiafoe in the quarter-finals of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.

Norrie’s stellar start to 2023 had seen him win the title in Rio last month and reach finals in Auckland and Buenos Aires.

The world No. 12 also won that tournament 18 months ago but saw his run in California end in the last eight after US Open semifinalist Tiafoe clinched a hard-fought 6-4 6-4 victory.

A cautious opener ensured the result stayed on serve until Tiafoe earned a crucial break in seventh service and he won the opener in 53 minutes.

Breaks were traded early in the second but American Tiafoe seemed to take control as he went 5-2 up.

Typical of not throwing in the towel, Norrie broke back and forced his opponent to serve for a semi-final spot.

Tiafoe made no mistake the second time as he asked to win the second meeting between the two and advance without dropping a set so far. Frances Tiafoe ends Cameron Norrie’s winning streak
