THE main draw has been made for this year’s Wimbledon with Andy Murray looking to compete despite recent injury scares. 

However, the two-time champion isn’t the only player with Scottish roots competing this year.

British no. 1 Cameron Norrie is also set to contest the third grand slam event of the year, where he will be seeded ninth. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Norrie, his Scottish roots, and what his potential chances are at this year’s tournament. 

Is Cameron Norrie Scottish? 

The 26-year-old was born in Johannesburg but his family emigrated to New Zealand when he was still young. 

He was born to a Scottish father and Welsh mother who were both microbiologists, with his Dad hailing from Glasgow.

Speaking before his second-round match at the 2017 US Open, Norrie said: “I’m pretty Scottish, I think. 

“I’ve been to Scotland a few times but I don’t like the weather. I went to Aberdeen; that’s where my dad’s side of the family live. 

“I’ve got cousins and uncles in Kintore.”

Norrie represented New Zealand as a junior but switched his allegiance to Great Britain when he was 17.

What's Cameron Norrie's career been like so far?

Last year was a breakout year on tour for Norrie. He picked up his first ATP title at the Los Cabos Open in Mexico before recording a sensational win at the delayed Indian Wells tournament in October.

His hard work coincided with a rapid rise through the world rankings, where he now sits at no. 12 having been ranked no. 74 at the beginning of 2021. 

Norrie has already picked up a couple of titles in Delray Beach, Florida and in Lyon, while he also made the final of the Mexican Open where he was defeated by 22-time grand slam winner Rafael Nadal. 

What are Cameron Norrie's chances at Wimbledon?

Norrie is seeded ninth at Wimbledon owing to the fact Daniil Medvedev has been prohibited from playing due to his Russian nationality while Alexander Zverev has also been forced to withdraw through injury. 

Although Norrie will hope to use the home crowd to his advantage, he comes into the tournament on a relatively poor run of form, having been knocked out in the first round of Queen's – where he reached the final last year.

He also recently suffered defeat to Maxime Cressy in the quarterfinals of Eastbourne. 

Despite a promising career thus far, Norrie has never progressed past the third round of any grand slam event so that’s something he’ll be looking to change at this year’s Wimbledon.

He has been drawn in the first round against world no. 100 Pablo Andújar, whom he has never faced before.
