It is just the second time Norrie, the current British No 1, has faced the former World No 1 and three-time grand slam champion Murray and it comes in the second round of the ATP Masters event.
Murray battled through cramps to survive an epic duel with old rival Stan Wawrinka in his opening round while Norrie, fresh from reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals, also required three sets to take down Holger Rune.
Murray won the pair’s only other meeting in 2019 but Norrie has come a long way since. “It definitely took me a couple of years to catch up with my level,” Norrie said. “For the most part, I was having to play at my best in practice to keep up with him. I think, probably nowadays it’s pretty even between us.”
