Nick Kyrgios Wimbledon 2021

Nick Kyrgios falls in Atlanta as Cameron Norrie notches another victory in 2021

Nick Kyrgios was handily ousted from the tournament by one of the in-form players on the ATP tour in British star Cameron Norrie. 

The maverick Aussie could not continue his run in Atlanta after conquering Kevin Anderson, losing to Norrie in straight sets 6-1, 6-4 to go out of Atlanta in the round of 16.

Kyrgios could not do much against Norrie in the first, as the Brit was so clinical on and against serve, losing just six points on-serve and breaking twice from two chances.

The first set took just 21 minutes, and the second was similarly precise for the Brit. Both he and Kyrgios held serve until 4-4, when Norrie broke at the second opportunity.

Norrie then served out the match, claiming it on his first match point. The victory takes Norrie to joint second with Andrey Rublev for most match wins on the ATP tour in 2021, only behind Stefanos Tsitsipas on 40.

He can look on to facing Finn Emil Ruusuvuori in the quarter-finals, while Nick Kyrgios will ready himself to defend his 2019 Washington Open title.
