Auger-Aliassime, started immediately from the second round. And the first match turned out to be the most intense for the Canadian. The two exchanged innings midway through the first set, but continued to serve until the tiebreak.
Auger-Aliassime emerged victorious in the ensuing tie-break, although he needed four set points to complete the set. At the start of the second set, he had five break points, but Nishioka managed to keep them all. The Canadian then managed to break his serve in the fifth game to take a 3-2 lead.
Auger-Aliassime then scored a couple of match points on Nishioka’s serve at 5-3, but failed to do his job. However, he ended the proceedings in the next game, handing her over to win 7-6(6), 6-4.
Cameron Norrie easily defeated Brandon Nakashima in straight sets in the first round, setting up a second round clash with Botich van de Zandschulp. The opening set was pretty one-sided.
Norrie made a break at the beginning of the second set and increased the score 2:0. His opponent managed to hold the serve after that, but the Brit won three games in a row and increased his lead to 5-1. The 26-year-old faced a slight hitch while trying to complete the match.
Norrie had to save a break point before successfully playing the match and winning 6-1, 6-2.
Both tennis players have met each other five times, with Auger-Aliassime leading 4-1 in their personal meetings. Norrie took his first win against the Canadian at the Los Cabos Open last week, defeating him in three sets.

Cameron Norrie has been in great shape this week. In two matches, he never turned down a serve. The Brit hits the ball pretty well and scored a convincing second-round victory over van de Zandschulp.
Auger-Aliassime also started his campaign well. His serve was excellent as he hit 17 aces. He had a high win tally of 39 but nearly matched the number of unforced errors he committed (33). This will be the fourth meeting of the duo this year.
Prediction for this meeting: Cameron Norrie to win in three sets.
