Norrie Stops Streaking Opelka for Delray Beach Title

As a top seed on the ATP Tour, Cameron Norrie has a perfect 1000 batting average. The British No. 1 won his third career win at the Delray Beach Open, defeating Reilly Opelka 7-6(1), 7-6(4) in just his second event as the No. 1 seed (also Los Cabos last season).

Norrie delivered a flawless performance from start to finish. He never faced a break point, and while failing to convert any of his five break chances against the 6’11” American, he ripped through the tiebreakers, seizing his opportunities and making the most of them.

Opelka, the Dallas champion last week, came into the final with a seven-match winning streak. He also had an eight-year winning streak at Delray Beach, having won the tournament in 2020 and missing the previous year due to injury.

Norrie, on the other hand, seized command and made the most of his opportunities. He now has a 2-1 overall record versus Opelka, and a 3-5 record in finals.

He won’t have a lot of time to rejoice. Norrie will meet Carlos Alcaraz, the Rio champion this week, in the first round of the Acapulco tournament next week. The ATP Tour is a fast-paced environment.
