Rafael Nadal beats Cameron Norrie to win the Mexican Open title

Rafael Nadal beats British number one Cameron Norrie to win the Mexican Open. Score 6-4 6-4. At the end of last year, Nadal, 35, thought he might have to retire because of a foot injury, but has won all three tournaments he has played this year. The Spaniard won a 21st major title at the Australian Open after victory in a Melbourne warm-up event. Victory over Norrie extended Nadal’s career-best winning start to the season to a 15th victory.

The fourth seed, who beat incoming world number one Daniil Medvedev in the last four, lifted the title in Acapulco without dropping a set. It is the 91st title of Nadal’s career and a fourth in the Mexican city, having won his first as an 18-year-old in 2005. Nadal, who also triumphed in 2013 and 2020, is now the tournament’s youngest and oldest champion. Norrie, who is ranked 12th in the world, had won his previous eight matches and claimed the title in Delray Beach last week.
