Rafa on playing Norrie:
“His level of tennis is huge. He improved a lot at the beginning of last year, and this year he continues. It’s going to be a big challenge, but we are in the final of a 500 here in Acapulco, so cant expect an easy opponent. I’m excited about being in the final.”
After losing all four of his matches in January, Norrie is 10-1 this month and coming off the third ATP Tour title ofhis career at Delray Beach. Norrie is 4-20 against Top-10 opponents.

GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
