- Norrie will face Casper Ruud in fourth round
- Andy Murray, Dan Evans and Heather Watson all out
Cameron Norrie overcame a late wobble to defeat Hugo Gaston and move into the fourth round of the Miami Open. Andy Murray, Dan Evans and Heather Watson all fell on Saturday to leave Norrie as the only British singles representative, but that is a position to which the 26-year-old is becoming accustomed.
He is on course to break into the top 10 for the first time next week and was ultimately too strong for the talented Frenchman Gaston, winning 6-3, 7-5. Norrie looked poised to claim victory more comfortably, recovering from dropping serve in the opening game of the match to move a set and 5-3 ahead. He held five match points on his opponent’s serve and then another on his own in the following game but was unable to take any of them, with Gaston using all his trickery to claw his way back into the match.
