In 2018, Norrie won his debut Davis Cup match in Spain against world No. 23 Roberto Bautista-Agut, despite only turning professional eight months previously, and last playing on clay in 2013. Norrie, ranked No. 114, came from two sets down, in what former Davis Cup captain John Lloyd said was "one of the most impressive debuts of all time".
He has three Challenger singles titles, and three Futures singles titles.
Norrie was born in South Africa to a Scottish father, David, and a Welsh mother, Helen, who were both microbiologists. Three years later, following a burglary, the family moved to New Zealand, where Norrie played tennis, squash, rugby, football, and cricket, finally concentrating on tennis at fifteen.
Norrie represented New Zealand as a junior, becoming No. 10 in the world, but received only a few thousand dollars from Tennis NZ, so his parents had to finance his overseas travel. At fifteen, he toured Europe for five months.
Norrie switched his allegiance at 16 to Great Britain, the nationality of both his parents, partly due to available funding, spending three years in London by himself. He lived and trained at the National Tennis Centre, later residing with a host family for two years while he continued his training. In 2013, he competed in all the Junior Grand Slams; the Australian Open for New Zealand, then for Great Britain at the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open, but only won one match, in Australia.
Norrie had difficulty on the European tennis circuit, so he considered training at American universities.
Norrie studied sociology on a scholarship at Texas Christian University (TCU) and joined the Horned Frogs university team, where he became the top-ranked male college tennis player in the US, being the first time that TCU had such an honour. In addition, Norrie was All-American three times.
In the 2016-17 season, Norrie was the only player to win every Big 12 match he participated in, with a 10-0 record in singles and doubles. In spite of being seeded No 1, Norrie missed the end of season NCAA Championships and put a hold on his studies, so that he could turn professional.
Norrie played three clay-court events in 2013; the Great Britain Futures F9 second round and F11 quarterfinals, followed by the Boy's French Open first round. He didn't play another match on clay until the 2018 Davis Cup against Spain.
Turning 18, Norrie was ranked No. 1348, but a semifinal showing at the Canada Futures F6 improved his ranking to No. 973, rising to No. 637 by June 2014. Whilst studying at university, he played only sporadically on the tour, falling to No. 1114 in October 2015. On 11 October 2015, Norrie won the USA Futures F29 at Mansfield, Texas, and became ranked 706.
Back-to-back titles at the USA Futures F21 and USA Futures F23 pushed him to No. 422 in July. A month later, at the all-British final of the Aptos Challenger, Norrie was beaten by Dan Evans and rose to No. 298.
Norrie played three events in January, reaching the semifinal of the Maui Challenger to become world No 238.
After completing three years of his four-year university course, Norrie turned professional in June, competing at the Surbiton and Nottingham Challengers, but still had a training base at TCU in Fort Worth.
Norrie made his ATP main-draw debut at the Aegon Championships, after receiving a wild card into the singles main draw, where he was defeated by Sam Querrey in the first round. Norrie earned his first ATP main-draw victory by beating Horacio Zeballos at Eastbourne, which was his first win over a top-50 player.
Norrie was seeded sixth in the qualifying draw for the Australian Open, but failed to advance into the main draw, losing to world No. 221 John-Patrick Smith. The following week, seeded fifth, he lost in the first round of the Newport Beach challenger event, losing to Michael Mmoh.
In February, Norrie was selected for the Davis Cup team for the first time for Great Britain's World Group first round match against Spain. He recorded the biggest win of his career in his first match, coming from two sets down to defeat world No. 23 Roberto Bautista-Agut in five sets.
His next main draw event was the Estoril Open. He lost in the second round to Roberto Carballés Baena. He teamed up with fellow Brit Kyle Edmund in doubles and won his maiden ATP Title, beating Wesley Koolhof and Artem Sitak. The pair did not drop a set the whole tournament.
Norrie failed to qualify for the Italian Open, losing in the first round of the qualification draw to Federico Delbonis. At Lyon, he beat his first top 10 opponent, John Isner, and reached his first ATP Semifinal.
At the 2018 French Open Norrie was a direct entrant into a grand slam for the first time. He played Peter Gojowczyk in the opening round, and won after Gojowczyk retired through injury. In the second round he faced Frenchman Lucas Pouille on the Phillipe Chatrier court. Norrie eventually lost to the French number one in 5 sets, after darkness interrupted play at the end of the 4th set.
Cameron lost in the first round of the Nottingham challenger, Queens Club and Wimbledon. However, he did reach the quarter finals at Eastbourne, despite self-admittedly not being a big fan of the grass surface. After the early exit in 2018 Wimbledon, he succeeded to reach his second ATP Semifinal in 2018 BB&T Atlanta Open after beating Malek Jaziri, no.6 seed Jérémy Chardy and no.2 seed Nick Kyrgios. He then lost to Ryan Harrison in three sets, despite winning the first set. A week later he continued his good form on hard courts, by reaching the quarterfinal of 2018 Los Cabos Open.
