Cam Norrie ready to rewrite Wimbledon history as Andy Murray warning made

Cam Norrie had a dream run at Wimbledon last year all the way to the semi-finals before losing to Novak Djokovic.

Cam Norrie feels he is in an even better place with his game than he was 12 months ago heading into Wimbledon when he reached the semi-finals with hopes of becoming just the second British male player to reach the men’s singles final in the Open era. Norrie came of age last year when he embarked on a dream run at SW19, finally living up to his high expectations.

Novak Djokovic proved too much for Norrie in the end, but the evidence was finally there that Norrie was able to go deep at a slam and compete at the highest level. That was always the question mark for Norrie heading into majors as he had previously failed to get past the third round.

But, for all of Norrie’s success at last year’s Wimbledon, he’s had a hard time building on that, losing in the third round of both the Australian Open and Rolan Garros. His troublesome knee has continued to cause him problems of late, losing to Sebastian Korda at Queen’s in straight sets.

But Norrie is clearly still riding on the crest wave of his 2022 Wimbledon run and has all the faith he could go one better in this year’s tournament. “It was huge for me last year and I need to take a lot of confidence knowing that I can play well on the grass,” Norrie said.

“It’s been a bit disappointing the last few months, but that’s tennis and it just makes it more special if I do have a deep run again. I’ll definitely use those feelings from last year and try to put them into this year and knowing that I can do it is a big part.
