Cameron Norrie reaches Argentina Open semi-finals after staging comeback

The British number one survived a scare having dropped the opener to home favourite Tomas Martin Etcheverry but stormed back after the first break to eventually triumph 5-7 6-0 6-3.

Norrie’s hopes of reaching his second tour semi-final of the season appeared in doubt as Etcheverry, the world number 82, played confidently in front of his home crowd to take the opener.

But Norrie responded by adapting his game plan and it paid off handsomely as he stormed through the second set before also maintaining the upper-hand in a decider that was also split due to showers.

Norrie will face either third seed Lorenzo Musetti or Peruvian qualifier Juan Pablo Varillas in the semi-finals.

Top seed Carlos Alcaraz meets Serb Dusan Lajovic in the other side of the draw, while Argentine Francisco Cerundolo plays Spaniard Bernabe Zapata Miralles.
