Cameron Norrie carefree against Steve Johnson in Wimbledon third round

Cameron Norrie (very) easily disposed of Steve Johnson on Center Court on Friday in the third round of Wimbledon (6-4, 6-1, 6-0).

Despite a tight first set, where he had to wait for the tenth and last game to win the set, the seeded No. 9 then blew up the American, with his left-handed leg still tricky to grasp. Solid on his commitments but also and above all taking advantage of his opponent’s 8 double faults and 43 unforced errors, the Briton played in total confidence on the London turf, saving in passing the three break points he had to face.

While he had said in recent hours that he felt more and more comfortable on the surface and was here to “win the tournament” Cameron Norrie rallies in week two and will challenge world No. 32 Tommy Paul in the round of 16. With no top 25 on his way to the semis, he will have something to play for in his quarter of the table, and the opportunity to walk the talk.
