Cameron Norrie Wins His First ATP Challenger Title

Tuesday, August 01, 2017

Cameron Norrie won his first ATP Challenger Tour title at the weekend after winning on the hard courts of Binghamton, New York.

Cameron produced a stunning comeback after trailing 1-4 0/30 in the deciding set to defeat top seed, Jordan Thomson 6-4, 0-6, 6-4.

It has been a fantastic start to his professional career since turning pro at the start of the summer. In his first month he beat World No74 Malek Jaziri at Surbiton and then World No49 Horacio Zeballos at Eastbourne. He then had his first taste of Wimbledon last month as a wild card into the main draw where he faced Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

This win at Binghamton now catapults him up 76 places in the rankings to No199 as well as a place in qualifying for the US Open, which starts at the end of the month.

He now looks to carry on his momentum into the Challenger in Lexington, Kentucky.
