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.
He 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 tt 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.
His playing style has been described as that of a counter-puncher. He has a heavy topspinning forehand but has a flat backhand.
And although he may be struggling in the Grand Slams, it is only a matter of time before the 26-year-old breaks into the big leagues.
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.
Norrie ended the year in grand style when he won his first ATP 1000 Masters title at Indian Wells. He thus became the first British player to win the tournament.
As such, there is plenty of interest in his personal life – including his finances. Here we take a look at his salary, net worth and the like.
The net worth of Norrie is estimated to be around $3.6 million. He has also won over $5 million in prize money over the years.

Norrie has a deal with renowned company Babolat for his rackets. But that isn’t the only major sponsor he has on his portfolio.
His shoes and apparel sponsor is K-Swiss. He is also endorsed by luxury watch manufacturing giant Rado, unlike many tennis stars who have Rolex deals.
It is not known whether or not he’s done any charitable work. However, Norrie does not have any charity organisations of his own.
It is not known if he owns any major notable assets.
