Cameron Norrie into US Open third round

Cameron Norrie into US Open third round Cam Norrie beat Federico Coria 6-3 6-4 6-4 and reached the third round of the US Open. Norrie brushed aside Coria to set up a third round clash with Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, who defeated Hubert Hurkacz in four sets. He barely looked back after fashioning a double-break advantage in the opening set, moving seamlessly one set away from victory. Coria showed sterner resistance in the third and held a series of break points which briefly put Norrie's two-set lead in jeopardy. But it was the Briton who pulled out the decisive break before successfully serving for the match and a place in round three after four previous second round losses. Norrie told Amazon Prime: "It feels even better because I'm not playing my best tennis and I'm just really proud of my attitude out there. "Having had such a good win against Schwarzmann on Monday I was pleased to back it up. "It's always tough to have such a high like that and then get up for the next one, so I was happy to get through in straight sets and save the legs a little bit."
