    A sudden, unexpected metamorphosis of the 26-year-old Norrie [26]. Admittedly he’s been enjoying the best season of his career, but prior to Indian Wells ’21 his Masters 1K results of ’21 didn’t significantly differ from the previous years, in 14 appearances at this level he’d never reached the quarterfinal. Once he finally did it, he destroyed Schwartzman (6-0, 6-2), and backed it up with a decisive win over [28] Dimitrov (led 4:0 in 1st and 2:0 in 2nd set). “It was the biggest match of my career, following on from yesterday, which was the biggest match,” Norrie said. “There was even more pressure today. I came out and played really physical. Grigor was maybe a little tired from the other matches, but he fought hard and made it physical at the start of the second set, which wasn’t easy.”
