Britain’s No.2 Cameron Norrie booked his spot for the San Diego Open final after coming back from behind to defeat seed Andrey Rublev.

Norrie lost the first set 3-6 to Rublev, but he fought back to win the next two 6-3 6-4 to secure a place in the final.

Norrie, who beat No.4 seed Denis Shapovalov in the quarter-finals, put in an impressive performance to win his match against Rublev.

It was shattered in the fourth game of the first set and, after Rublev took a 4-1 lead, he closed the set.

Norrie, who won her first ATP Tour title in Los Cabos earlier this year, saved three break points in Game 3 of the second set, which marked a turning point.

He then shifted into high gear to defeat Rublev, who had previously not lost a set for the entire tournament.

Speaking in an on-field interview broadcast by Amazon Prime Video, Norrie said: “What an incredible game.

“All credit to Andrey because he came out shooting and played some big tennis at the start and then I got through the storm.

“It’s such a big win for me, I’m good friends with Andrey so it’s not easy to play against him. It’s definitely a game that I will remember for a long time.
