Born in South Africa to a Scottish father and Welsh mother they moved to New Zealand before he took up tennis and moved to the UK anddeclared as a Brit. Then he went to USA,Texas in fact which is almost it's own country, and was a college tennis star.
Turning pro he has cracked the top 75 and in his British DC debut he came from 2 sets down to world #23 Bautista-Agut and won in 5. He neat Isner in Lyon. He had a terrible grass season in 2018.

How far can this lefty go?

At least the semis at Atlanta unless he chokes. Up a set and a break against Kyrgios. Never seen him in my life, so beyond that it's a bit difficult to comment.

What was Nick's reason this time?
He was clutching and rubbing his knee, thigh and shoulder even before starting the warm up. He intentionally lost the first set, tried 3 drop shots while serving at 5-6 and all 3 points. Sadly I was one of the many that paid $250 to see the spectacle in person.

Always a worry when the player knows he's injured, but just doesn't know which body part.

$250? Does that include travel and hotel expenses?

I think Edmund remains the next multinational Brit hope...he could break through and win his first ATP title this summer.

It's just the ticket cost, but for two(what I paid) to make the cost appear bigger than per person.
Still seems pricey for a 250 event. First 4 days on Wimbledon Centre court were cheaper.
Anyway sorry Nick put in a lame performance again, I need a new avatar, I've had it with him.
 
Why use multinational to describe him? We are all humans and there's only one race kids, human.

So the subject title is dumb, unnecessary and kind of inappropriate no?

Well the OP didn’t mention race and as far as nationhood goes I think most sports fans like to cheer on one from their own nation although maybe less so in tennis outside of Davis Cup. Us Brits often get a bit of ribbing as so often we have adopted sportsmen and women who have transferred allegiance, Greg Rusedski and Lennox Lewis being fairly recent examples.

Lennox was born in the UK though. :cool:

Norrie put poor Gunneswaranreshs out of his misery rather quickly last night in Sammy Hagarville, 2&2. All lefty 2R vs FeLo.

Another all-lefty win for redhot Norrie over aging hunk FeLo. Judmoo will issue a harsh rebuke when they meet.

Plays a third lefties in the QFs..Yo, Adrian had better Mannarino up!
