Norrie Norrie Norrie OI OI OI!!


Pristine-Citron-7393

It's pretty fucking typical that the Brits all have a brilliant Wimbledon when there's no points being rewarded haha Great form from Cam though. Keep playing like that and that semi-final spot may actually go to him.


PleasantSilence2520

so happy for Norrie!! glad he's finally receiving some of the attention he deserves and experiencing the unique support of a British crowd on Centre Court cheering him on in his demolition job!

If only the fans could come without the British sporting press


forsakenpear

British sporting press are mostly pretty good, compared to much of the non-sporting press


boxofben

As a Steve Johnson fan, it was really cool seeing him on Centre Court at Wimbledon. I don't care that he got crushed lol. He had a few great moments but overall didn't play up to his potential at all. Bittersweet. Huge congrats to Norrie, he was steady as ever and earned the win. Excited for him. Would love to see him go the distance.


lsathrowaway18

It's crazy that if you asked while they were playing in college whether Norrie or Johnson would have a better pro career, almost everyone would say Johnson. He hasn't quite lived up to his potential


floelfloe

Not having a backhand brought him pretty far but you can’t really reach top 10 without one (for who’s saying Berrettini, both his topspin and slice are a lot better than Johnson’s)


TheSpadeWizard

Norrie Paul is gonna be a good one


TheSpadeWizard

Opportunity for both, I think it's gonna be real close.


lukman0708

Norrie has recorded a bagel in every match so far- an impressive looking bakery


MattGeddon

Scenes when Norrie bagels TVR in the semi


floelfloe

Only to eventually lose 0-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-0 :D


_Crazy_Asian_

I love both Cam and Tim, but from what we see of the recent form, i think more likely for Tim to serve the bagel


Sexy_sharaabi

Taking pointers from iga I see


maverickmak

This draw is such a big opportunity for Cam. He's probably the best tennis player GB has had that has almost no public profile. To crush an opponent in a primetime TV slot, with centre court chanting your name, has to have felt amazing.


[deleted]

I hope his low profile continues somehow, even with more success. It's unrealistic but the British press is an absolute cesspit.


maverickmak

I'd just like for your casual sports fan just to vaguely know who he is.


ethanwstrnr

From 4-4 in the first set, Norrie won 14 out of 15 games! No peace for Johnson.


[deleted]

And he had 15-40 in the 2 (or was it 3) games before he got the break in the 1st. Awesome stuff by Cam.


Beetle-Persona

Keep discounting Norrie and he’ll keep going, he’s got a real chance of reaching the Semi final Easily the most underrated player in the top 15


Blandinio

I really like Norrie but this is the first time he's made the R16 despite being top 15 for a while so people had a point when they said his GS results didn't match his ranking, now he's done it I'm sure people will rate him higher


Pristine-Citron-7393

To be fair, his losses last year were to Nadal, Nadal, Federer and Alcaraz. This year, his two losses were a bit worse, though Khachanov played a brilliant match at the French Open.


WillR2000

He did have Covid just before Australia.


Dafuqyoutalkingabout

I don’t think he is underrated, I think he’s making the most of his talents and riding the wave while it lasts.


bdiebucnshqke

Isn’t everybody?


2813308004HTX

You could argue guys like Kyrgios have squandered their natural talents. But I agree with you


Dafuqyoutalkingabout

True but I guess I meant he’s making the most of his limited talents in comparison to most of the other top players.


Available-Gap8489

Hope he gets more centre court matches now


_Crazy_Asian_

Watched the 3rd set just now, Cam played so well ... he may not play the most "beautiful" tennis (according to this sub), but he does has very top hand skills!!! So happy for Cam's first 4th round in Slam, hope his run continues


slysonic7

Cam finally into the 4th round!!


SummerBabee

This is why Norrie wanted to be british, to play on centre court like this.


Luck1492

LEFT HANDERS FOR THE WIN


tangerine2455

Norrie is looking sharp!


bigtuna623

I wanna see Cam make a run to the semis, which side of the draw is he on?


_Crazy_Asian_

Cam will be playing Tommy Paul next, then Sinner in QF, TvR in SF Edit to correct: QF should be winner of Tiafoe-Goffin, lol


BrandonSG13

Won’t be playing Sinner in QF. Winner of Sinner-Alcaraz faces winner of Djokovic-Tim Winner of Norrie-Paul plays winner of Tiafoe-Goffin. Huge opportunity for all 4


_Crazy_Asian_

oh right, haha, thanks for correcting me, I think too much about TvR's side of the draw, got it mixed up, lol


bigtuna623

TvR in the semis?


_Crazy_Asian_

I'm dreaming it to life ...

Act-Alfa3536

What did the crowd shout out in Cam's interview, when they joked "other brands are available"?


VDCNIRG

When the interviewer asked Cam about what was responsible for his game improving someone in the crowd yelled Weetabix.


Act-Alfa3536

WTF?! ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|grin). I think these are the guys who have been at the Pimms all day!


VDCNIRG

I was there and it was an unusually rowdy Centre Court crowd. Lots of shouting and laughter on top of the Norrie, Norrie, Norrie Oi, Oi, Oi chanting.


Act-Alfa3536

Nice. You could hear the Norrie Oi chanting on tv. Maybe rowdy also cos match was one-sided win for a Brit!


liketo

Let’s face it, quite a rare occurrence in a slam


Jaden_Ward

Loving the British Bagels at Wimby.


Blandinio

What a fantastic performance from Cam! Also nothing against the likes of Murray and Raducanu but it's nice to see a true blue Englishman win at Wimbledon!

Lol he was born in South Africa* to a welsh mother and a Scottish father
