Born on the 23rd of August, 1995 in Johannesburg, South Africa, Norrie initially represented New Zealand the nation he was raised in, before switching to represent the country of his parents, Great Britain.
As a junior Norrie struggled to make much of an impact in the major events, winning just a single Grand Slam match.
After gaining a sports scholarship at the Texas Christian University in the US, Norrie became the top-ranked male college tennis player in the country.
Making his senior Grand Slam debut at the 2017 Wimbledon Championships after receiving a wildcard, Norrie would suffer a straight-set defeat to 12th seed Jo-Wilfired Tsonga.
Later that year, Norrie's first Grand Slam win would come at the US Open. After coming through a first-round encounter with Russia's Dmitry Tursunov, Pablo Carreño Busta would prove a step too far in round two.
Norrie would pick up the first ATP Tour title of his career alongside Kyle Edmund in the doubles event at the Estoril Open in 2018. Beating Wesley Koolhof and Artem Sitak in the final, the British pair didn’t lose a set throughout the tournament.
Despite early exits in all the Grand Slam events of 2019, steady progress on the ATP Tour would see Norrie break into the world's top 50 for the first time.
Norrie’s first ATP Tour singles title would come at the Los Cabos Open in 2021. Beating Brandon Nakashima in the final, Norrie would rise to world number 29, the highest ranking of his career to that point.
A few months later Norrie would pick up the biggest win of his career, defeating Nikoloz Basilashvili in the final at Indian Wells for the first Masters 1000 title of his career.
A third career title would come at the Delray Beach Open in February 2022 before Norrie’s best Grand Slam performance at his home slam of Wimbledon that summer. Wins over Pablo Andújar, Jaume Munar and Steve Johnson saw Norrie reach his first Grand Slam last 16 before victories against Tommy Paul and a thrilling five-set comeback win over David Goffin saw him into the semis. Despite taking the opening set, Norrie would fall to a brave four-set loss to eventual champion Novak Djokovic.
After losing in the third round of the 2023 Australian Open, Norrie picked up the Rio Open title, defeating defending champion and top seed Carlos Alcaraz in a three set final.
