Rising British star Cameron Norrie has recalled his first meeting with former world No. 1 Andy Murray. Norrie, 23, and three-time Grand Slam champion Murray met for the first time at the Queen's Club in 2017. Back then, Norrie was making his debut appearance on the grass of Queen's.
Norrie, who had a chance to speak with record five-time Queen's champion Murray, didn't impress in his debut at the tournament as he was beaten in the first round by American Sam Querrey. "He (Murray) came up to me and my coach and introduced himself," Norrie exclusively told the BBC.
"I thought it was pretty humble of him to go out of his way and introduce himself, I have a lot of respect for him as a person as well as a tennis player. "I mean I'm not really going to go, 'Hi, I'm Cameron Norrie, do you know who I am' kind of thing?" Norrie, who is enjoying a career-high ranking of No.
41 in the world, admits it will be tough to get to the No. 1 spot like Murray did. "It's going to be tough to get to number one in the woaslike Andy did, to fill that gap, but we'll try," Norrie admitted.
