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.
Rafa is 24-2 at Acapulco with 9 straight wins (18-0 in sets), 14-2 record on hard (29-4 in sets) and 10-0 record on clay (20-0 in sets). He is youngest and oldest champion in event’s 29-year history (18 in 2005, 33 in 2020).

Good Victory. Never in doubt. Played just as well as was needed. Should’ve closed it out 6-2 in the 2nd but came back nicely to wrap it up 6-4. Congrats Rafa!
