The British ace jumped into the top 100 with an impressive showing throughout the clay season.

Norrie reached the semi-finals in Lyon where he knocked out John Isner before he was beaten by Gilles Simon.

And the 22-year-old will be looking to continue his form against three-time Grand Slam winner Wawrinka, who is struggling to find his top form following a long-term knee injury.

“He is a great player and I think it is not a bad draw,” Norrie said.

“He is just coming back from injury and it’s going to be tough out there for sure.

“I’m looking forward to the grass. I have taken some confidence from the clay but I think it is going to be quite challenging for me.

“But I like a challenge so I’m going to have to play very aggressive and back myself and back my backhand.”

Norrie recently broke into the top 100 and he says it has still not hit home.

“I am a little bit surprised and it has only just set in that I am in the top 100,” he added.

“I am just enjoying my tennis every day and every week and that is why I have been quite successful.

“I have not stressed too much about rankings and trying to get into the top whatever.

“It has been a great journey so far and I think it is just the start for me.

“I just want to keep enjoying the moment and each experience.”
