Norrie began the year with Great Britain at the ATP Cup before playing in the Australian Open, where he lost a tricky first round match against rising star Sebastian Korda.
He opened his winning account for the season in Rotterdam, where he reached the quarter-finals of the singles event - defeating Ugo Humbert and Karen Khachanov. He lost to eventual champion Felix Auger-Aliassime in the final eight.
Norrie returned to winning ways in Florida as he claimed his third ATP title at the Delray Beach Open. The British No.1 defeated three home favourites en route to the title, including Sebastian Korda, Tommy Paul and the second seed Reilly Opelka in a 7-6(1), 7-6(4) victory in the final.
A semi-final victory over World No.4, Stefanos Tsitsipas, set up Norrie’s second straight final in as many weeks in Acapulco. Here, he battled 21-time Grand Slam title winner, Rafael Nadal who ended the British No.1s eight-match winning streak with a 6-4, 6-4 victory in the final.
Norrie returned to Indian Wells looking to defend his title just five months after being crowned champion for the first time in his career. Norrie defeated American youngster, Jenson Brooksby, comfortably in the last 16, but lost 6-4, 6-3 to Spain’s up and coming star, Carlos Alacaraz.
Seeded at No.10, Norrie received a first round bye at the Miami Open before going on to qualify for the last 16 after a comfortable win over France’s Hugo Gaston in the third round, seeing Norrie break into the world's top 10.
In the end Norrie lost out to world No.7 and eventual runner-up, Casper Ruud 6-3, 6-4 in the fourth round.
Norrie reached the quarter-finals of the ATP 500 event in Barcelona, but just fell short of the semi-finals after losing 3-6, 5-7, 6-1 to Australia’s Alex de Minaur.
Continuing his campaign on clay, Norrie reached the last 16 at the Madrid Open after claiming wins against the likes of Soonwoo Kwon and John Isner, closely followed by a third-round battle against the then soon to be named Champion, Carlos Alcaraz, losing 6-4, 6(4)-7, 6-3.

Norrie advanced to the quarter-finals of ATP 500 events in Barcelona and Acapulco before reaching the final on an ATP 250 tournament in Estoril, Portugal, where he was beaten in three sets by Albert Ramos-Vinolas. In May he beat World No.4 Dominic Thiem in straight sets in an ATP 250 event in Lyon - where he also reached the final.

He then entered The Championships, Wimbledon, for the first time as a seeded player where he lost to eight-time champion Roger Federer in the third round.
In July, Norrie won his first ATP title at the Los Cabos Open after defeating Brandon Nakashima 6-2, 6-2 in the final. Later in the year he made his fifth final on the season at the ATP 250 San Diego, beating three players inside the top-25, before losing to second seed Casper Ruud in the championship match.
At the BNP Paribas Open in October, Norrie shocked the world to become the first Briton to win the title in Indian Wells. He defeated Diego Schwartzman, Grigor Dimitrov and Nikoloz Basilashvili to lift his first ATP Masters 1000 trophy. His incredible run saw him rise to World No.15 and become the 18th man since 1973 to earn the title of British No.1.
Reached the last 16 of the Delray Beach Open in February. Progressed to the third round of the US Open in September for the first time and in the process defeated eighth seed Diego Schwartzman in a thrilling five-set encounter where there were 58 break points - the most in any match in US Open history.

Took Kevin Anderson to three sets in the first round at Queen’s. Knocked out by Dan Evans in the second round at Eastbourne.
A breakthrough year for Norrie. Started at World No.114 and made his debut in the Davis Cup to come from two sets down and beat world No.23 Roberto Bautista-Agut in Spain – despite not having played on clay since 2013. John Lloyd called it “one of the most impressive debuts of all time.” Gained direct entry into a major for the first time at Roland Garros, where he advanced to the second round after his opponent retired through injury.
