Cameron Norrie has experienced a dip in form since his remarkable run at Wimbledon 2022, where he reached the semifinals and lost in four sets to Novak Djokovic, who went on to win the tournament, defeating Nick Kyrgios in the final.
According to Mail Online, the Briton reminisced about his impressive 2022 Wimbledon run in an interview: “It was a lot of fun,” Cam Norrie recalled. “I loved the energy, everyone was pumped, there was an amazing buzz.”
“I want to do that again,” Norrie added. “That just made me hungrier to get more moments like that and have another deep run in a Slam, which I haven’t done since then.”
The former Brit No. 1 holds a 14-13 (52%) record in 2024 and is currently ranked world No. 39, far from the top-10 position he held for a few weeks in 2022. Norrie is set to play this week at the ATP 250 Eastbourne International against Emil Ruusuvuori.
Norrie has endured an inconsistent season and has yet to improve during the grass swing. After being eliminated in the first round of the French Open, Norrie decided to play the Challenger of Nottingham II but was ousted in the round of 16 by 21-year-old world No. 639 Jack Pinnington Jones.
“I have been trying to mix up the way I am playing this year, so it is very uncomfortable for me and I am taking a lot of losses because of it,” Norrie admitted. “I am not being mentally as clear or as confident as I was in the past. Making sure you are playing on instinct and not thinking too much is key.”

“It’s good to be improving my game but I want to be making sure I am getting some results as well. I am looking forward to when it’s going to happen,” added Cameron Norrie, who hopes to regain his confidence at the All England Club.
“I’ve always had a good feeling playing at Wimbledon. It’s my favorite tournament of the year. I would love to be there with the expectations to do well and be high-seeded and ready to do some damage," the former world No. 8 added. “But I know I am a good player on the grass and I don’t think anyone wants to play against me at Wimbledon. That will be a tough draw for anyone. I am looking forward to playing freely and taking it to the top guys in the world.”
