Cameron Norrie is out of the Italian Open after Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas cruised to a 6-2 7-6 (7-1) victory in Rome to book his place in the last 16. 

Tsitsipas proved far superior in the opening set, breaking Britain’s Norrie twice en route to a rapid set victory filled with exquisite drop-shots, rocket serves and powerful forehand winners.

The second set saw the Greek move a break up early too, but to Norrie’s credit he dug deep to break back and force a tie-break, recovering from 0-30 down at 5-5.

The tie-break was even more one-sided than the rest of the contest, however, as Tsitsipas streaked out to 5-0, and then clinched a 7-1 victory via a forehand winner.

Tsitsipas will face Australian Alex de Minaur for a place in the Italian Open quarter-finals, after the Aussie came from a set down to beat Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-7 6-4 6-4 earlier on Monday.

World No 6 Andrey Rublev – Madrid Open champion earlier this month – suffered a surprise exit to Frenchman Alexandre Muller 3-6 6-3 6-2.
