Cameron Norrie BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, advanced to the fourth round after coming back from behind Japanese modifier taro daniel.

This English number one, 12th in the world, battled to beat world number 103 Daniel 6-7 (5) 7-5 6-2 in a competition that lasted just over two hours and 40 minutes.

Norrie looked doomed after losing the opening set by a tiebreak and trailing 4-1 in the second set.

But the 2021 Indian Wells champion rallied on his way to capturing the set, taking four back-to-back games, then smashing Daniel twice early in game three as he completed the turn.

It’s the 20th victory of the season for Norrie, who won the Rio Open last month after beating world number 2 Carlos Alcaraz in the final.

The 27-year-old said in a field interview broadcast by Amazon Prime Video: “I wasn’t very happy with myself at the start of the second set.

“But I was able to really play points for points and then really come back and play some of my best tennis.

I played a solid third set and I think he could have been a lot more comfortable but he struggled a lot.

“I’m happy to ride the wave right now, but I still have a lot to work on. It wasn’t the best of today’s matches, but I’ll admit it.”
