• Norrie: ‘I think that was the best I have played in my life’
Twelve months after stepping on to the Tour as a full-time professional, with a strong left arm and no fear, Cameron Norrie is preparing to play the world No 16, Lucas Pouille, in front of the Frenchman’s home crowd on a show court at Roland Garros in the second round of the French Open.
There are kids making pottery that have more experience with clay than the 22-year-old. However, if he was expected to be overawed on a muggy Monday afternoon against the world No 43, Peter Gojowczyk, he showed no signs of it, breezing past the German in 41 minutes.
