Cameron Norrie cruised into the quarter-finals of the Western and Southern Open with a dominant win over American wild card Ben Shelton.
The Scot was untouchable in the first set, dominating his 229th ranked opponent’s service game to take the set to love.
Although Shelton was able to hold serve twice in the second set, he was ultimately no match for Norrie’s all-around game.
Norrie wrapped up the 6-0 6-2 result in just 58 minutes to book a clash with teenager Carlos Alcaraz.
The 19-year-old Spaniard eclipsed Marin Cilic in three sets in the third round and could overtake Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev for the second spot in the ATP rankings with victory in Cincinnati.
Meanwhile, Emma Raducanu’s scintillating early run at the Western and Southern Open has ended in a 7-5 6-4 defeat to Jessica Pegula.
The 10th seed opened her campaign in Cincinnati with impressive victories over WTA Tour veterans Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka.
But the top-ranked American proved too tough a mountain for the defending US Open champion to climb.
