Nottingham Open: Liam Broady Withdraws After Unfortunate Accident, Cameron Norrie Receives Wildcard

In a surprising turn of events, British tennis player Liam Broady will miss the upcoming Nottingham Open after a bizarre accident left him with a concussion. Meanwhile, compatriot Cameron Norrie has been awarded a wildcard entry to the tournament.

Broady, who has been sidelined with an ankle injury since March, was looking forward to making a comeback at the Nottingham Open. However, a mishap involving hitting his head on a car boot has derailed his plans. The world number 145 shared the unfortunate news on social media, stating that he won’t be able to compete due to the concussion.

As Broady shifts his focus to the Challenger Tour event in Ilkley to regain fitness ahead of Wimbledon, Norrie is gearing up to take the court in Nottingham. The British number one, fresh off a first-round exit at the French Open, is eager to showcase his skills at the tournament. Joining fellow Briton Dan Evans in the main draw, Norrie is aiming to make a mark at the event.

With the grass-court season underway, Norrie is excited to compete in front of his home crowd at the Rothesay Open Nottingham. The 33rd ranked player in the draw is determined to follow in the footsteps of past British champions and add his name to the list of Nottingham Open winners.

In the women’s draw, British sensation Emma Raducanu will also be in action after skipping the French Open to focus on her grass-court preparations. After a challenging season that included surgeries on her wrists and ankle, Raducanu is eager to make a strong comeback on the grass courts.
