The fans supported Cameron Norrie as he defeated Jenson Brooksby 6-3, 6-4 in the semi-final on Friday. He will compete against Richard Gasquet in the championship round on Saturday after Gasquet's fellow countryman Constant Lestienne withdrew due to a pectoral issue.
In Auckland, Cameron Norrie still feels at home even though he competes under the British Flag. He spent his formative years in this city of New Zealand, where he made his first ATP Tour final in 2019. He now aims to advance farther by taking home his sixth tour-level victory at the ASB Classic.
With a straightforward victory over the troublesome Brooksby, who was making his Auckland debut, Norrie improved to 6-0 on the 2023 campaign.
