Of course, his 2021 is to be excited, but perhaps he exaggerated too much. Maybe. At 26, Cameron Norrie is enjoying the prime of his career and dreams big. The British tennis player occupies the best position of his career (16) in the ATP ranking and has just won his first Masters 1000 a few weeks ago in Indian Wells, and his feelings invite him to set goals that in reality seem very far away.
“I want to be number one in the world. Everyone on my team is pointing the same way. I know it is something tremendously difficult to do, but we set ourselves a great goal and we will do everything possible to achieve it," said the Briton.
While his progress this season has been incredible, it is hard to see how Norrie can reach the podium in qualifying. A couple of weeks ago at the Masters 1000 in Indian Wells he signed the best performance of his career, defeating the Americans Tennys Sandgren and Tommy Paul, the Spanish Roberto Bautista Agut, the Argentine Diego Schwartzman, the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and finally the Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili.
Next week, Norrie will return to activity at the Vienna Tournament, where he had to make his debut in a difficult first round against the Hungarian Marton Fucsovics. At the moment the pending account of him continues to be the members of the Big-3, in the end the parameter that the rest of the members of the men's circuit have.
Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal is a phenomenal athlete. The 20-time Grand Slam champ has shown his proficiency not only on the tennis courts, but on the golf course as well. Nadal has more than just a passing interest in the sport and has appeared in competitive tournaments as well.

Rafael Nadal’s follow-through motion seemed to have a slight hint of a tennis swing. For which we can’t blame the 13-time French Open champion as tennis is what he is best known for.
However, his compatriot and fellow Golfer Sergio Garcia came across the clip and had an interesting take on it. He stated, “Nice and short, compact for sure. I played with him a while ago and it was even more tennis-y then.
At the end of the day though, he’s a competitor and knows how to score. He has a swing that works well for him”. Coming to tennis, Nadal was seen competing in Washington the last time. He was unable to go deep, as his foot injury was still not allowing him to perform to the best of his abilities.
Following that, he decided to end his season and set his sights on the 2022 season. We hope to see him come back soon on the Tour and compete for the biggest titles again (in tennis).
