In cricket, the presence of South African players in English cricket has made a big difference to the way how the game has evolved. In British tennis, the trend seems to have caught on thanks to Cameron Norrie.

Norrie was born in Johannesburg, South Africa to a family who were microbiologists. But Johannesburg’s reputation as the crime capital came back to haunt him when the family was burgled.

They moved to New Zealand and at the age of 16, he moved to London. Three years later, he attended Texas Forth Worth College and it was there where Norrie realised his tennis dream.

2021 saw him rise up the rankings and he is currently the British number 1. He won an ATP Tour title for the first time in Los Cabos, defeating Brandon Nakashima in straight sets.
