ROCK GOD Jon Bon Jovi has told Cameron Norrie “I’ll Be There For You” at Wimbledon with a surprise visit.
The American singer, 61, formed a surprise bromance with the British No.1 at the Miami Open in March when they enjoyed a rallying practice together.
Rock god Jon Bon Jovi has developed a friendship with a British tennis star
He will be supporting Cameron Norrie at Wimbledon next month
Norrie’s girlfriend is friends with the Jovi family and the Livin’ on a Prayer songwriter intends to watch him in action at SW19 next month.
Norrie, not your typical Rock ‘n’ Roll sportsman, said: “He’s really liking tennis more and more. I think he’s going to make an appearance at Wimbledon.
“It’s cool to see him enjoying it. To meet him and to hang out was great.
“I’m not really the biggest of his fans. Obviously respect his music and I know a lot of his songs.
“It’s cool to see him getting involved in tennis and liking it. I’ll hopefully see him hitting some balls over Wimbledon time.
“I’m sure he’ll enjoy Wimbledon. I think he has a couple of shows planned in British summertime as well.”
Before then, of course, Norrie will hope to enjoy a Blaze of Glory at the French Open – if he can qualify for the fourth round for the first time.
Today he will face Lorenzo Musetti for the second time in six weeks – the 21-year-old Italian won the last encounter at the Barcelona Open in April.
Should he break new ground on Parisian clay, then he may face world No.1 Carlos Alcaraz on Sunday.
In the stands will be members of the Norrie clan after they made the decision to relocate from Kiwi country.
Norrie’s Scottish dad and Welsh mum have now moved to the UK full-time after upping sticks from New Zealand after 25 years.
The parents want to be closer to their son – who is ranked 13th in the world – and their daughter, who is based in London.
Norrie said: “My mum came to watch my last match. She got the train over.
“It’s not like two huge flights to get here from New Zealand. I think she will stay for the rest of the tournament now.
“Or she can go back and forth between days if she wants.
“It’s so good to have my parents around. It makes it so much easier.
“I get to hang out with them a bit more on weeks off and that can definitely have a big, positive impact on my life off the court.
“My sister is coming to watch on Friday. Her and my mum will get to enjoy Paris a bit.
“I don’t know about my dad – he has to look after the dogs.”
