Norrie progresses to Atlanta semi-finals
Cameron Norrie beat Alexei Popyrin in straight sets to reach the Atlanta Open last four and is eyeing a second ATP final.
Norrie, 23, who lost to US star Tennys Sandgren in January's Auckland Open final, advanced to the semi-finals with a 7-5 6-4 victory over the 19-year-old Australian.
The South African-born ace will next face American second seed Taylor Fritz and is eager to go all the way after passing a tough test on Friday.
"I'm pumped to get through that," he said. "It wasn't easy because he's young, up-and-coming and talented.
"It's another semi-final now, so I'm just going to look to keep my level and keep pushing for more."
The news was not so good for British number three Dan Evans, who crashed out 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 to giant American Reilly Opelka.
Opelka, 21 and 6'11", served 23 aces and will now face Australian Alex de Minaur after he progressed when compatriot Bernard Tomic was forced to retire due to injury.
