Rado YoungStar Cameron Norrie won his 2nd title on the ATP tour last night at Indian Wells (USA) and is for the very first time in the top 20. Cameron joined Ugo Humbert in the Rado YoungStar programme earlier this year. A programme designated to support talented and ambitious players with enormous potential and part of Rado’s comprehensive tennis activities. One former Rado YoungStar has reached the very top of the sport: Wimbledon 2021 champion and WTA number 1 Ash Barty.
Cameron Norrie’s star continued to rise as he capped a sterling run at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells with a hard-fought win over Nikoloz Basilashvili in the men’s final. It’s the 26-year-old British player’s second ATP Tour career title. He captured his maiden title earlier this year, where he swept all 8 sets on route to victory at the Mifel Open in Los Cabos, Mexico. All told, Cameron has reached the final round six times this year – a remarkable feat.
Cameron Norrie’s splendid performance on the courts this year is reflected in his rapid rise in the ATP rankings, from No. 71 at the beginning of the year to his current place in the top 20 – for the first time. His notable string of recent victories also propels Norrie into the number one spot in the British professional men’s tennis rankings. Cameron Norrie is the most recent young tennis pro to join the Rado YoungStar programme. A South African who grew up in New Zealand, he has represented Great Britain since 2013.
A proud member of the Rado YoungStar team, Cameron wears the Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic. “It takes years of hard work and dedication to reach the top of the game, in tennis and watchmaking alike. Today’s a big day for me, and I appreciate the support from Rado and my fellow watch fans.”
