Home » Barcelona Open: Cameron Norrie beats Roberto Bautista Agut to reach quarter-final

Cameron Norrie cruised into the quarter-final of the Barcelona Open with a 6-4 6-3 over Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut.

The British number one sealed the victory inside one hour and 24 minutes, and will face Argentina’s 14th seed Tomas Etcheverry next.

It was Norrie’s 200th tour win of his career.

“On the score it was easy but there were a lot of tough points in there,” Norrie told Sky Sports.

“I was really pleased how I handled myself when serving for the first set.

“I felt like I was moving well and I was pleased with my footwork.”

Meanwhile, Etcheverry fought back from a set down to beat Brandon Nakashima of the United States 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 and book his spot in the last eight of the ATP 500 tournament.

Australian fourth seed Alex de Minaur, who ended Rafael Nadal’s injury comeback on Wednesday, suffered a surprise 7-6 6-2 defeat by Arthur Fils.

Frenchman Fils, who is ranked 36th in the world, will play unseeded Serb Dusan Lajovic in Friday’s quarter-finals.

Elsewhere, Norwegian third seed Casper Ruud enjoyed a dominant 6-1 6-4 victory over Australia’s Jordan Thompson, while Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, the fifth seed, defeated Spain’s Roberto Carballes Baena 7-5 6-3.

Ruud, who lost to Tsitsipas in the final of the Monte Carlo Masters earlier this month, will face Italian Matteo Arnaldi in the quarter-finals, while Argentina’s Facundo Diaz Acosta will take on Tsitsipas.
