Speaking on the race to Turin, Norrie, who is aiming to play at the ATP Finals for the first time, said: “I’m watching all the matches and I think everyone else is as well. It’s cool to have something extra to play for.”
The Brit next faces in-form Taylor Fritz in the round of 16, with the American fresh off the back of making the final of St Petersburg last week.
“I’ve played him a lot in my career, I think the most of anyone, so we both know each other’s games very well,” Norrie said of his next opponent.
“He’s extremely confident, had a final last week and has beaten two good opponents this week.
