At the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati, there is an all-British duel between the former and the current British number one
The Cincinnati Masters takes place in Ohio, USA and was first held in 1899, making it one of the most storied events on the ATP and WTA tours.
Scottish former world No.
Norrie is ranked ninth in the Masters and will take on world No. 47 Andy Murray.
The pair were due to meet in Monday night’s session as a headline event, but “due to a number of factors surrounding scheduling” the game has been pushed back to Tuesday.
With three Brits competing in highly anticipated matches, here’s everything you need to know to keep up…
When does Andy Murray play Cameron Norrie?
The British male tennis stars will face off tomorrow, Wednesday 17th August 2022. The time has yet to be confirmed.
Murray defeated Wawrinka in the first round 7-6 (7-3) 5-7 7-5 and overcame muscle cramps to reach the Round of 32 while Norrie defeated the Danish Rune 7-6 (7-5) 6 -4 6- defeated. 4 in his attempt to reach the second round.
Speaking about his fitness issues following his win, Murray said: “I had some cramp issues during the game, as did Washington, so I need to get that under control.
“I would like my tennis to get better at times because I still believe it can be better than it is now.
“In recent years it has not been easy to stay fit and healthy and to play enough tennis. That’s a positive thing that I got to play a lot or more games this year.”
The two faced each other once before. Murray beat Norrie at the 2019 China Open.
When does Emma Raducanu play Serena Williams?
This is the first round of the Women’s Cincinnati Masters and, after being postponed, is scheduled to be played on Wednesday, August 17 at 00:00 BST (Tuesday, August 16, night).
It’s likely that the Cincinnati Open will be the penultimate tournament that former world number one Serena Williams will compete in after announcing she will be “evolving” from the sport after the US Open.
This will also be the first tournament Williams has played on home soil in two years, so expectations are exceptionally high.
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Raducanu hopes to use this tournament to train and prepare for her US Open title defense later this month.
Raducanu has said, “I just want to get out there and enjoy the match that I’m going to play, whenever I play it. Playing the best on their way out of the sport is a great gift. I’m just looking forward to that.”
