Norrie falls high at Queen’s, three series heads on the carpet

Britain’s No. 1 Cameron Norrie was knocked out as he entered the Queen’s tournament on Monday against Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov, as did two other series heads. The No. 3 series head of the London turf tournament and 11th World Cup fell in three sets 6-7 (2/7), 6-1, 6-4 after 1:59 p.m. Dimitrov, 22nd world champion and winner of the Queen’s in 2014, by reasonably aiming for the quarter -finals as he will have to face next opponent the British Paul Jubb (227th), passing through the qualifiers, or the Dutch Botic van de Zandschu.

British Jack Draper (99th), recipient of an invitation, in turn created the sensation of this first day by beating 6-2, 6-3 in 1:13 of the game against American Taylor Fritz, 14th world and series head N.4. The 20 -year -old left will face Frenchman Quentin Halys (86th) or Finnish Emil Ruusuvuori (56th) in the next round. A third head of the series did not pass the first round and Queen’s select frame, Reilly Opelka. The American, leading the World Series No. 8 and 18th, narrowly slipped 6-4, 6-4 against Australian Alex de Minaur (21st). Minaur, who had reached the semi-finals of the tournament in 2021, will face Spanish Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (44th) in the next round, beating his compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas (40th) 7-5, 6-4.
