Britain's Cameron Norrie claimed his first ATP singles title with a 6-2 6-2 victory over Brandon Nakashima in the final of the Los Cabos Open in Mexico.

Norrie, playing in his fifth ATP final and fourth this year, controlled the match against American Nakashima, 19, as he won in one hour and 23 minutes.

The 25-year-old left-hander also won the tournament without dropping a set.

"I feel very happy. I couldn't be more proud of myself, proud of my team and how I handled the week," said Norrie.

"I am happy how I improved every match. I used my experience a little bit [against Nakashima] and I think it showed in the match.

"I think it's a huge bonus. It was always a goal of mine to get my first title. I'd lost three finals this year so it was very nice to get over the line."

Norrie chose to miss the Olympics to concentrate on the ATP Tour and will rise to 12th in the annual rankings on Monday.

He added: "I'm happy with my level and how I handled the situation, especially coming in as the number one seed. It's not easy to be the favourite.

"I went out there and took care of business when I needed to."
