Cameron Nora’s rise to the top of tennis is no accident, the coach insists

Cameron Norrie it is worth believing that he can upset Novak Djokovic and achieve Wimbledon final according to coach James Trotman, who has seen him develop from a green teenager into one of the best players in the world.

Trotman was the trainer who worked with Nora after he made the decision to switch allegiance to Great Britain a decade ago, moving more than 10,000 miles from his home in Auckland, New Zealand, to London.

Nori decided to continue his tennis journey by moving to the US and attending Texas Christian University, but kept Trotman as part of his team all the while.

“It was a big change for him to leave home, it was a big decision,” Trotman said.

“Honestly, when you see that 17-year-old now compared to the person you’re talking to, and the clarity of who he is, who he wants to be and how he’s going to do it, it’s phenomenal.

“I was around a lot of very good players. Just watching Cam’s preseason workouts over the last four or five years, the work he puts into his body, the amount of stress he pushes himself, there aren’t too many players who do a similar job. It’s pretty incredible.”

I’m going to take it to him: Cameron Norrie out to end Novak Djokovic’s dominance

Cameron Norrie hopes that his drive for relentless improvement can lead him to the former Wimbledon final

The British number one has made a habit of surprising people over the past 18 months, but all those achievements would be spectacularly overshadowed if he defeats Novak Djokovic in the last four finals on Friday.

For a player who found full-time tennis overwhelming when he moved from his home in Auckland, New Zealand, to London as a teenager and made it to the professional game via an American college, there’s a real appreciation for what those two weeks have brought.

“It’s really cool, especially when I made it to the quarterfinals the other day,” he said. “I was thinking about when I was a kid and I was watching the guys on TV going to the quarter-finals and I was like, ‘Wow, that looks so difficult and there’s almost no chance I’m going to do it.’

“But just doing it and living it and experiencing it is really cool and pretty crazy, actually. And now I’ve gone further in the semi-finals, so I think I can get a lot of confidence from that.”
