Two months after winning the Delray Beach title, Norrie became the fourth Briton ever to be ranked among the world’s Top 10 in the ATP rankings. Four months after his Delray victory he reached his first Grand Slam semifinal at Wimbledon.
This year, Norrie notched his career-best wins over two world No. 2 players from Spain – Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz. He beat Alcaraz in the Rio de Janeiro final for his fifth title in three years.
In 2021, Norrie won his first at Los Cabos and was the first British player to win the Masters 1000 Indian Wells title in the tournament’s 46-year history.
Before turning pro, Norrie was the No. 1-ranked college player in 2017 at Texas Christian University. Another past DBO champion and a recent finalist made waves in the latter part of this tennis season.
Returning for the ATP Champions Tour legends event opening weekend February 9-11th are fan favorites and French Open champions Luke and Murphy Jensen along with 2016 DBO champion and former world No. 11 Sam Querrey.
They will join Bob and Mike Bryan, the most successful doubles team in the history of the sport, and 2006 Delray Beach Open champion Tommy Haas, who reached the No. 2 world ranking.
The legends event coincides with qualifying for the ATP 250 tournament, while the singles and doubles main draw action starts Monday, February 12 and concludes with the finals on Sunday, February 18. Delray Beach Open tickets and parties make great holiday gifts.
