Cameron Norrie pulled out of his quarterfinal match against Jenson Brooksby at Korea Open less than an hour before he was expected on the court.

Per ATP confirmation, the British Number One is said to be unable to play because of illness.

The 27-year-old had been suffering from jetlag ever since he arrived in Korea but was still able to beat Japanese player Kaichi Uchida 6-2 6-2 in the past round.

Another Brit who has pulled out of a quarterfinals match is 28-year-old Liam Broady at the Tel Aviv Open. He pulled out of his quarterfinals bout against Marin Cilic.

No reason has yet been given as to why Broady pulled out.

Norrie is currently ranked No.11 in the world and has won two titles this season. He is also in the hopes of qualifying for the ATP Finals in Nitto.

He has been playing in Korea Open and the Japan Open in order to earn enough points to qualify for the finals. He is currently ranked No.11 and he needs to be at least No.8 in the world in order to play in Nitto.

He is the third player to withdraw from a match at the Korea Open. Earlier, sixth-seeded Borna Coric also withdrew. Another dropout was Taylor Fritz who withdrew on Thursday.

In other Korea Open news, Casper Ruud has been eliminated by Japanese player Yoshihito Nishioka. As a result of the loss, he will drop in the world rankings and will be taken over by Rafael Nadal.

Nishioka will next face American Aleksander Kovacevic in the semifinals.
