Norrie’s Surprising Elimination in Miami

Norrie’s Surprising Elimination in Miami

Cameron Norrie’s hopes of another successful Miami Open campaign were dashed as he suffered a surprise second-round defeat to France’s Gregoire Barrere. The British No.1 had enjoyed previous success in Miami, winning the title in 2021 and reaching the quarter-finals the year before. 

However, he was no match for Barrere on this occasion, with the Frenchman winning comfortably in straight sets. Despite a brief period of resistance from Norrie, Barrere broke his serve in the eighth game to take the first set 6-3. The second set was similarly one-sided, with Barrere cruising to a 6-2 victory in just over an hour. Barrere will now face Christopher Eubanks in the third round.

Meanwhile, American qualifier Christopher Eubanks pulled off a shock victory over 17th-seeded Croatian Borna Coric to secure his place in the third round. Eubanks, who is ranked 119th in the world, fought back from a set down to win 3-6 6-4 6-2, recording the biggest win of his career so far. 

Coric had been a heavy favorite going into the match, but Eubanks showed great resilience to battle back and secure the win. The victory will no doubt give Eubanks a confidence boost as he prepares to take on Gregoire Barrere in the next round.
