Cameron Norrie’s tournament is to frame so he doesn’t win the trophy in Indian Wells. With a peak of performance difficult to match in the quarterfinals vs. Diego Schwartzman.
However, his move to the definition of the tournament places him in a situation of such privilege that he could surpass such a feat. it would give him the most important title of his career. One that, for example, couldn’t get Andy Murray.
The former world number one, in his only final in California, categorically lost to Rafael Nadal 6-1 and 6-2.
Nor did Tim Henman make it twice. In 2002 he yielded to Lleyton Hewitt (6-1 and 6-2) and in 2004 to a rookie Roger Federer (double 6-3).
