Cameron Norrie became the first Briton to win the Indian Wells title when he fought back from a set and a break down to beat Nikoloz Basilashvili. Norrie, 26, won 3-6 6-4 6-1 against the Georgian to seal one of the biggest titles in tennis. “I’m so happy, I can’t even describe it,” he said on court. 

His exploits in California have propelled Norrie to British number one and he is in the running to reach the elite seasonending ATP Finals. Norrie will rise to a career-high 16th in the world, having started the year ranked 74th, after a stunning season where he has reached six finals and won 47 matches.
