British tennis player Cameron Norrie has made it clear that his goal is to make it to the No. 1 spot.
Norrie, 26, is having the best season of his career.
Norrie is enjoying a career-high ranking of No. 26 in the world but that will change this Monday.
On Friday, Norrie beat Diego Schwartzman 6-0 6-2 to make the Indian Wells Masters semifinal.
By reaching the Indian Wells semifinal, Norrie is guaranteed to make the top-20 on Monday and overtake Dan Evans as the top-ranked British tennis player.
“The goal is to keep getting better and get towards world No 1,” Norrie said, per Tennishead.
“I have obviously got a long way to go but that’s the goal for me. It’s been a lot of fun this year and I am feeling good and ready to keep pushing for more.“I just want to keep the momentum every week, keep enjoying my tennis, keep enjoying playing at this level. It’s nice to show this level at these events and the Slams.”
Norrie aiming a sixth final of the season
Norrie has had a big 2021 season as he has already made five ATP finals.
Norrie lost his first three ATP finals of the season as he finished runner-up in Estoril, Lyon and Queen’s.
Norrie finally captured his maiden ATP title in Los Cabos, before ending runner-up in San Diego.
“I’m going and just playing, and I think a big part of that is on my serve. I’m hitting the spot better in the bigger moments and being able to play on my terms in the bigger moments,” said Norrie.
“All the way through this year I have been playing great in big moments, and I have come good a lot of the time. I know I’ve got that in the bank, and there is a good chance throughout the year I have been doing it, so I have the confidence to do it again.”
