Cameron Norrie secured his place in the clay court Argentina Open final after beating Juan Pablo Varillas on Saturday.

Norrie went into the tournament ranked second and beat the Peruvian 7-6 (5) 6-4, saving two break points in the final game to wrap up the victory in an hour and 54 minutes.

“It’s going to be a tough one for sure, regardless of who I play,” Norrie said, reported by the ATP website.

“I lost a tough final in Auckland, so hopefully I can get some good feelings back tomorrow in the final.”

Norrie will face top seed Carlos Alcaraz, who continued his stellar return from injury with a 6-2 6-2 demolition of countryman Bernabe Zapata Miralles.

Daniil Medvedev secured a comprehensive straight sets victory in under an hour and a half to beat Grigor Dimitrov and reach the final of the ABN AMRO Open in Rotterdam.

Medvedev won 6-1 6-2, converting six of 13 break points in the process and set up a final against Jannik Sinner.

“It was an amazing match,” the victorious 27-year-old said. “The score (looks) easy, but the match was not.

“I felt physically like I was playing five sets. (There were) some amazing rallies.”

Sinner beat wildcard Tallon Griekspoor in straight sets 7-5 7-6 (5) to set up a meeting with the Russian.
