Tennis Scotland Awards - International Player of the Year 2017

Friday, April 20, 2018

Cameron Norrie, who shot to prominence during 2017, has been named as the Tennis Scotland International Player of the Year.

The British No. 3, who came through the American college system where he was the top ranked male college player in the USA, turned professional in June of last year, winning three Challenger events before the end of the year and qualifying for the main draw of the US Open where he reached the second round.

In February this year, Cameron was selected for the Davis Cup team for the match against Spain where he recorded the best win of his career, defeating world number 23 Roberto Bautista-Agut in five sets.

Born in South Africa, Cameron’s father David is Scottish while his mother Helen was born in Wales.

Cameron commented, "I’m very honoured to be recognised by Tennis Scotland and to be following in the footsteps of so many great names. Jamie Murray, Andy Murray and Gordon Reid have all been world No1 in their discipline, so these are very hard shoes to fill."
