In the semifinals, Norrie will face Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, world No. 9, who previously defeated American Steve Johnson in two sets by 6-4, 7-6 (3).
Auger-Aliassime’s victory was a hard-fought one, which he achieved in one hour and 50 minutes of play.
In the first set the difference was a break of the Canadian in the first game for the 6-4 and in the second Johnson took things to the tie break in which Auger-Aliassime showed more poise in the decisive moments to win the set and the match.
The Canadian is looking for his second career title in Los Cabos.
