Cameron Norrie speaks to the media after his 4-6, 7-6(4), 7-6(4), 6-4 defeat against Aljaz Bedene

Q. Bearing in mind you've been professional for 14 months, how does today's defeat rank in terms of disappointment?
CAMERON NORRIE: I think I handled the occasion a lot better than I did last year. I think I've grown a lot over the last year as a player.

But, no, I think I played well, and he just played more clutch than me in both tiebreaks, was more aggressive, and showed his experience today.

But, no, I'm happy with the way I competed and played today.

Q. Did you feel in the tiebreak, it was just experience?
CAMERON NORRIE: No, I think he just served better than me in both tiebreaks. He missed one first serve I think in both of them. Yeah, the double-fault was just one point, so it wasn't that major anyway.

Marin Cilic hopes another good run at Queen's Club will stand him in good stead for Wimbledon.

The top-seeded Cilic was champion in 2012 and runner-up in 2013 and 2017. He came close at Wimbledon last year, losing to Roger Federer after suffering from bad blisters in the final.

He made a winning start at Queen's Club on Monday, beating Fernando Verdasco of Spain 6-3, 6-4.

"You can't live on the glory from last year, you have to show that again," Cilic said. "The grass-court season, it's short but it's sweet as well."

Cameron Norrie advancedto the seocond round of the French Open after Peter Gojowczyk retired early in the second set, complaining of a hip injury.

“I think that was the best tennis I have played in my life,” said Norrie of a match that finished with the scoreboard reading 6-1, 2-0 in his favour. “I was in the zone and not making any unforced errors, being the one dictating play.

“He's obviously made a final last week. So I played very, very high level throughout the match and was able to stay concentrated and focused. If he's winning that match, there's no chance he's retiring. I mean, I outplayed him throughout, and it was unfortunate for him to pick up an injury. I would have loved to keep playing [because] I was feeling really good out there.”

US Open 2017: Cameron Norrie and Kyle Edmund advance to second round

US Open 2017: Cameron Norrie and Kyle Edmund advance to second round

The Scots could celebrate an early victory for one of their own – but not the usual fellow. Cameron Norrie, whose father was born in Glasgow, needed only 94 minutes to score his first grand-slam win out on the boondocks of Court 14.

It would be hard to imagine a more roundabout route than the one Norrie has followed to reach this victory, which will carry him inside the world’s top 200 for the first time. He was born 22 years ago in Johannesburg, South Africa, to a pair of micro-biologists whose scientific expertise has given them the freedom of the globe.

At the age of three, the Norries moved to New Zealand. “My parents were just sick of getting robbed, little things like that,” he said. “New Zealand was just a really safe country. That’s why they chose that and they liked it.”
