Laughable from Norrie, Benchetrit won a set here last year vs Monfils then struggled winning those 4 games he got after that.

One thing I'm not looking forward to with the grass season is the BBC pundits trying to delude the British public into thinking Norrie's any good.

something had to be up with norrie. there's no way he was 100% and losing to benchetrit let alone in this way
He posted on Instagram "Ready to kick it off tomorrow here at the French. Grateful to be fit & healthy, now it’s time to enjoyyyy."

About him being possibly injured: i watched most of the match (... why did i do that!?) and didnt notice anything being wrong injury-wise. He just got outplayed.

I do agree with the ones here who have posted that Norrie doesnt seem very fit for an athlete.

Norrie is simply an awful player and he has got ugly techinque on his groundstrokes. Glad he is out.

Rather one (or many) may realize when also Edmund will flop in not winning anything noteworthy in next few years that British male tennis (singles) may be in a big hole after Murray's retirement – again.

Yeah I agree, I like Edmund but his BH will never be good enough and he just doesn't seem to have that fire in him that the top players do.

When we won the DC our team may as well have been named Andy Murray + some other blokes.
