July 22, 2021 7:00 pm EDT
Cameron Norrie (1) meets Ernesto Escobedo in the quarter finals of the 2021 Los Cabos Open on Thursday, July 22nd, 2021.
Will Cameron Norrie continue on raising his level as he aims to become a mainstay in these tournament later rounds, or will Ernesto Escobedo come out here and give it his all to cause the huge upset and make his way to the semi finals?
Ernesto Escobedo showed some strong tennis in the second round, beating the always tough Denis Kudla in 2 sets 6-4/7-6. Ernesto Escobedo is not really known around the tennis world, mainly focusing his time on challenger tour tournaments. However, he is in the quarter finals here in Los Cabos, and he will know that if he can improve on his level against Kudla and play as if he has nothing to lose, he can definitely keep things tight in the quarter final against Cameron Norrie. However, this is much easier said than it is actually done.
Cameron Norrie put on a solid display in the second round in his first match on hard since the beginning of the year, coming out here to beat Elias Ymer in 2 sets 7-6/6-3. Cameron Norrie knows that he is in good form and he is continuously improving. Cameron Norrie will come out in this quarter final knowing that he has a very strong chance at the title here in Los Cabos, but he needs to ensure he wastes no time against much lower ranked opponents as he aims to maintain his energy for much more important opponents later on in the tournament.

This is going to be the 1st meeting between both players, and unfortunately for Ernesto Escobedo, I don’t see him getting anything out of this match. Cameron Norrie is a lefty who can hurt anyone when he is at his best, and he is continuously improving. Ernesto is good against similar ranked opponents, but Cameron will hurt him on his backhand side and he will use his flamboyant style of play to get on top of points early in the match, dominate the rallies, and get himself into the semi final in Los Cabos.
