The “Peque” fell 6-0 and 6-2 in one hour and 13 minutes of play on the center court of the desert Indian Wells, in California.
Schwartzman, who on Wednesday had perhaps the best performance of the year by beating the Norwegian Casper Ruud, number 10 in the world, made many mistakes on Thursday and Norrie gave him no respite.
The first round was clearly in favor of the European, who broke the serve of the “Peque” three times and, at sheer power, was left with a resounding 6-0.

In the second boy the Argentine seemed to react, who recovered from a loss of service and rallied from 0-2 to equal it 2-2, but it was just a mirage, the British won the next four games, with two breaks included, and left out of the contest to Schwartzman.
Norrie will play the semifinals against the Polish Hubert Hurkacz or the bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov.
