Cameron Norrie is currently the number one British male tennis player and he has also established himself in the top 30 of the world rankings.
The left-hander has worked hard to climb his way up the professional ladder and here we profile the British tennis ace.
Norrie is still seeking his first Grand Slam success, but he has inched closer to winning one of the 'Big Four' events as his career has progressed.
Reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2022 is the South African-born star’s best performance in a Slam, eventually losing to Novak Djokovic. Norrie took the first set to lift the home crowd, but the Serbian superstar responded in usual fashion to eventually win 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4, before going on to win the final.
In the same calendar year, the British number one made it to the fourth round of the US Open – his best showing at Flushing Meadows. The seventh seed eventually went out in straight sets to Andrey Rublev in New York.
Norrie’s best run at the French Open is the third round, the same stage in which he has progressed to at the Australian Open.
Norrie has racked up five titles on the ATP Tour, with his first tournament success on the main tour coming in July 2021.
The left-hander won the Los Cabos Open in Mexico and then, just three months later, secured his second title with victory in the Indian Wells Masters.
That Masters 1000 event is the biggest win of his career to date – beating the likes of Roberto Bautista Agut, Diego Schwartzman and Grigor Dimitrov en-route to the final, where he defeated Nikoloz Basilashvili.
Norrie went on to claim another two tournaments in 2022, with victory in the Delroy Beach Open followed by his first clay-court title, when winning the Lyon Open.
His fifth ATP Tour title came in February 2023, when he lifted the Rio Open trophy with a three-set victory over Carlos Alcaraz.
At the time of writing, the Monaco-based Norrie is 18th in the world rankings but he has been inside the top 10 in the past.
The British star’s highest position came in September 2022, when he reached eighth in the world off the back of his semi-final appearance at SW19.
Norrie has won $10,132,000 in prize money since becoming a professional in 2017, with that success coming across both singles and doubles competitions.
$2,089,000 of that total came during the year 2023, when he played in 24 individual events – with his tournament success in Brazil bringing him $376,000 in prize money.
The Brit was born in Johannesburg on 23rd August 1995, making him currently 28 years of age.
Norrie was born in South Africa to a Scottish father and a Welsh mother, moving to New Zealand at the age of three.
When he turned 16, Norrie moved to London for three years, before then attending the Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.
The British number one has a base in Putney, but his main residency is in Monaco.
His world ranking means the British number one will automatically qualify for the opening Grand Slam of 2024, with Norrie heading straight into the main draw.
This will be the sixth time that the 28-year-old has played at the Australian Open, but he is yet to get past the third round in Melbourne.
Norrie will hope to be fully fit and in good form heading into the first Slam of the year, for which he is available at 200/1 to win.
