The second set was again closely contested until, with the score tied at 3-3, Norrie double-faulted, allowing Giron to break and take the seventh game. The American looked likely to pull away again with a lead of 5-3, but Norrie served back-to-back aces to win the ninth.

Despite the British player’s best efforts, Giron came from 15-40 down in the 10th game to win the match and reach the last eight.

Giron, who sits 45 places below Norrie in the rankings, now faces Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals after the Bulgarian despatched Andrey Rublev 6-3 6-4.
