Norrie lost 6-1 6-3 to Ugo Humbert.

Cameron Norrie was far from his best as he crashed out of the Lyon Open at the first hurdle on Monday.

Norrie never got going in a 6-1 6-3 defeat to Frenchman Ugo Humbert, with a rain delay in the second set coming too late for Norrie to slow his opponent's momentum.

Humbert has struggled since reaching the semi-finals in Marseille in February and had been looking uncomfortable on clay, but there only ever looked to be one winner in this contest as he raced into a 4-0 lead, with Norrie not winning any of his service games in the first set.

With the match at 4-3 after the rain delay Norrie forced two break points but could not capitalise and Humbert saw the game out to set up a second-round tie with third seed Denis Shapovalov of Canada.
