British youngster Cameron Norrie continues his good start to the year with qualification to the main draw at the Indian Wells Masters.
The 22-year-old made his arrival on the British tennis scene with his last-minute inclusion to the Great Britain Davis Cup team, winning a memorable singles match against world number 23 Roberto Bautista-Agut.
Since then, Norrie has continued to punch above his weight, being defeated narrowly by world number six Dominic Thiem at Acapulco.
Playing Ukraine’s Sergiy Stakhovsky in the final round of qualifying, Norrie made short work of his opponent, winning 6-4 6-2.
The former Texas Christian player will now face Taro Daniel of Japan in the first round of the main draw. Daniel is ranked 109 to Norrie’s 111, and the pair have never met on the court before.
The winner of the match will face 12-time Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic in round two.
Behind Andy Murray and Kyle Edmund, Norrie is the third ranked British player in world tennis currently.
