Murray won this tournament in 2008 and 2011, but he comes into this matchup as an underdog as he continues to search for some consistency after battling injuries.
It was a typically gritty performance to beat Stan Wawrinka in the first round, winning in three sets after nearly three hours, as he searches for form that could put him in the top seed for the US Open later this month. .
Consistency hasn’t been an issue for Norrie over the past 12 months, reaching the semi-finals at Wimbledon earlier this summer for her best Grand Slam result.
It promises to be a tough test for Murray, but one that will give him a good indication of the state of his game ahead of the trip to New York.
“I would like my tennis to be better at times because I still believe it can be better than it is now,” Murray said.
“It has not been easy in recent years to stay fit and healthy and to play enough tennis.
“Right now I have to play and compete to try and maintain the rankings and hopefully get ranked in the events, get into more tournaments, not have to rely on wild cards.”
Of fellow Briton Murray said: “Flat on the backhand, heavy topspin on the forehand. We spent some time together on the pitch, so there won’t be many surprises for me.
