Andy Murray vs Cameron Norrie 2022: what time is Cincinnati Open tennis match - and how to watch on TV in UK
An all-British clash is set at the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati between former and current British number ones
The Cincinnati Masters takes place in Ohio, USA, and was first played in 1899 making it one of the most historic events on the ATP and WTA tours.
The Scottish former world number one Andy Murray survived an intense battle with his long-time rival Stan Wawrinka to reach Round 32 of the Cincinnati Masters while Norrie won in an equally enthralling battle with the rising star Holger Rune.
Norrie is the number nine seed in the Masters and will take on the world number 47 in Andy Murray.
The pair were supposed to meet in the Monday night session as the headline event but “on account of a number of factors related to scheduling” the fixture has been pushed back to Tuesday.
With three Brits competing in hotly anticipated fixtures, here is all you need to know about how to keep up...
When is Andy Murray v Cameron Norrie?
The British male tennis stars are set to face each other tomorrow, Wednesday 17 August 2022 . Their match is first up on Centre Court and has an expected start time of 4pm (BST).
Murray beat Wawrinka 7-6 (7-3) 5-7 7-5 in the first round, overcoming muscle cramps to reach the round of 32 meanwhile Norrie defeated the Danish Rune 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 6-4 in his bid to reach the second round.
Speaking after his win, Murray spoke of his fitness struggles and said: “I had some issues with cramp during the match, the same as Washington, so that is something I need to get on top of.
“I would like my tennis to be better at times because I’m still convinced that it can be better than where it is right now.
“It’s not been easy these last few years to stay fit and healthy and play enough tennis. That’s a positive thing that I got to play lots of matches or more matches this year.”
The pair have faced each other once before. Murray beat Norrie at the 2019 China Open.
Emma Raducanu v Serena Williams result
British tennis’s rising star Emma Raducanu beat one of the game’s greats in Serena Williams in Cincinnati.
In their rescheduled first round match, Raducanu beat Williams 6-4 6-0 to advance to set up a second round meeting with Victoria Azarenka.
Raducanu’s match with Williams was the first time the two had met on the court in a competitive tournament, and it could be the last with the US player ‘evolving away’ from the sport after the US Open.
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Raducanu will be hopeful of using this tournament to train and prepare for her title defence at the US Open later this month.
