Cameron Norrie’s ATP Finals Ends With Heavy Defeat To Novak Djokovic

Posted by

Cameron Norrie’s incredible season came to an end at the ATP Finals in Turin, when he was beaten 6-2, 6-1 by Novak Djokovic.

Following injuries to Matteo Berrettini and Stefanos Tsitsipas, the British No. 1 received entry for the Finals as a second alternate after 50 match wins, a maiden ATP victory in Indian Wells, and a rise to 12th in the world.

Casper Ruud’s defeat destroyed any hopes of reaching the semi-finals, and with Djokovic already through, the round-robin round came to a halt. If anyone doubted Djokovic’s commitment, he proved them wrong by winning the first set in just 28 minutes.

Norrie had his moments, too, with a pair of scorching passing strokes and a second-half break point. However, he was left with no doubt about the disparity in class between the world No. 1 and the rest of the field.
