World number 12 Cam Norrie set out to reach the second round of a Grand Slam for the first time this week and he has done so after a comprehensive straight-sets victory over Steve Johnson on Friday. The 26-year-old’s journey from late top-100 obscurity last January to the ninth seed at Wimbledon this summer is nothing short of remarkable, with nine tour finals in the space of 12 months seeing four ATP titles won, including a Masters title from Indian Wells last October.
World number 32 Tommy Paul has also reached the round of 16 at a major tournament for the first time and in some style having not dropped a set so far against Fernando Verdasco, Adrian Mannarino and Jiri Vesely. The 25-year-old won his first ATP title at the Stockholm Open last season and he has been steadily improving since, with recent results on grass over Denis Shapovalov, Stan Wawrinka and Jannik Sinner impressing greatly.
This is a huge opportunity for one of Cam Norrie or Tommy Paul to reach the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam for a first time. Recent form on grass gives the American the edge after some huge results over the last few weeks and his spotless record so far at Wimbledon but the home crowd on what will likely be Centre Court will be pulling almost entirely in Norrie’s direction. The Brit leads Paul 2-1 in their head-to-head record, winning each of their last two meetings including on his way to the Delray Beach title back in February, and he is improving with each passing round on grass. This could go the distance between two exceptionally fit individuals and home advantage will help the longer it takes to complete. Back Norrie to win at least two sets as the likelier of two very capable winners.
