The British number one has successfully, and relatively easily, booked his place in the US Open 2022 second round.

He has enjoyed a breakout year on the ATP tour so far, winning his first Masters title at Indian Wells 2021 last September and reached his first Grand Slam semi-final earlier this year at the Wimbledon Championships.

The 27-year-old reached the top 10 in the ATP rankings for the first time earlier this year after he made it through to the fourth round of the Miami Open.

Norrie lost to the eventual finalist, Casper Ruud, but broke into the top 10 for the first time in his career on 4 April 2022 before he went on to win his fourth ATP title at the Lyon Open.

This summer’s Wimbledon championships saw Norrie’s deepest run in a Grand Slam to date. The South African-born Briton beat Steve Johnson, Tommy Paul and David Goffin to set up a place against the eventual champion Novak Djokovic in the semi-final.

Despite winning the first set, Norrie ultimately lost but was awarded with a career high ranking of world number nine.

Now, he will hope to go one step further at the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year in New York
