Former Macleans College student becoming a force in world sport

Posted on January 29, 2019

Cameron Norrie (Snell House 2009 - 2012) is one of the rising stars in world tennis.

Earlier this month he reached the final of the ASB Classic in Auckland but lost to Tennys Sandgren.  Since turning professional in May 2017 he has risen to a current world ranking of 64 and has already beaten a number of highly successful players including John Isner who is in the top 10 in the world. Having gained a scholarship to study sociology at the Texas Christian University he became the top ranked male college tennis player in the USA in 2017.

Cameron now plays on the senior circuit.  In February 2018 he competed in the Davis Cup and was part of the Great Britain team that played against Spain. He had a standout result beating Roberto Bautista Agut who is ranked 23 in the world. He has also just competed in the Australian Open in Melbourne, one of the four major tennis tournaments, and played in both the men’s singles and men’s double competitions. Unfortunately, he was knocked out in the first round.
