Cameron Norrie loses in straight sets to Andrei Rublev, the last Briton to be eliminated from the US Open singles

New York — Cameron NorrieHis run at the US Open ended in the fourth round after losing in straight sets Andrey Rublev on Monday.

Nouri had been aiming to become the first British player to reach the men’s singles quarter-finals since then Britain’s Andy Murray Back in 2016, but in a match that stopped the rain, Nuri was frustrated by non-forced errors that made him lose 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to Rublev in 2 hours 26 minutes.

“I felt like I started the game very well, very relaxed and played well, and served well.” Nouri said. “Yeah, I felt very relaxed and very low energy. I don’t know why. I felt like Andre didn’t really give me anything, and he was so solid. All credit to him.”

The match was a weird one-stop affair with two breaks in the second set due to rain. The world number 9 Nouri was already a set and a breakdown at that point.

Rublev broke Nuri in the ninth game of the first set to take 6-4, then followed that up with a quick break in the second set to take a 3-2 lead against serve by the time game five was over.

Rain began to fall and play was paused to allow Louis Armstrong’s roof to close. But despite the break, the roof remained open and play resumed. After only two games, play stopped again. There was a 23-minute pause as the roof closed and the court dried up. Despite the stop, Nuri couldn’t break Rublev’s comeback and it was the Russian who went for two sets.

“It was strange,” Nouri said. “They decided to keep it open, and they waited a little bit for the field to dry, and then we played two games, two very fast games, and then all of a sudden, oh, no, it rained again. We had to wait again for the roof to close. Yeah, that’s what it is.”

The third set risked running away from Nuri as he lost his serve in the fifth game, but turned again in the sixth set as Nuri broke again after receiving a racket abuse warning after hitting the ground after 33. Non-compulsive foul in the match

That seemed to motivate Nuri as he took seventh place to lead 4-3. “I think this was the best match of the match,” Nouri said. “I played the only game I’ve ever had chances to really break. So I felt like I was able to lay off a little bit. Obviously it’s not ideal to break rackets and do that. Yes, I rarely do, so I was able to kind of snap and change my energy and really lift. Then “.

But Rublev drew the set level in the next set, and then earned three break points in the ninth. Nuri saved the first two, but couldn’t come close to a superb backhand across the field from Rublev to give him the chance to serve the match. And dominated that final, as Nuri hit a backhand in the net to meet Rublev reaching the quarter-finals of the third US Open, where he will face Rafa Nadal or Francis Tiafoe.

“I think today it was all on my side,” Rublev said. “I played [a] Really good match, consistent match. Plus maybe Cameron [in] All the important moments, when I need to make an ace or a first serve, it always happens that I’ve been doing it.

“Every time Cameron was, he had a chance, every time he missed or missed or whatever I had good shots in. Every important moment something was happening, he was always on my side.”

The defeat means all Great Britain players are eliminated from the singles at this year’s US Open. Nouri was the last one standing after Dan Evans fell in the third round to Marin Cilic and Jack Draper He had to retire from his injuries from the third round match with Karen Khachanov. on the part of the woman, Harriet Dart I reached the second round of singles where I lost dolma galfi While defending the hero Emma Radukano Lost in the first round to Alize Cornet.
