Cameron Norrie is into the Wimbledon semi-finals and will now face defending champion Novak Djokovic

British No 1 Cameron Norrie has reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon for the first time after an epic five-set victory over David Goffin.

The 26-year-old prevailed 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 7-5 to set up a semi-final clash with defending champion Novak Djokovic, who rallied from two sets down to beat Jannik Sinner in five sets earlier on Tuesday.

Norrie joins Andy Murray, Tim Henman and Roger Taylor as the only British men to reach the semi-finals in men’s singles at the All England Club in the Open Era.

Against Goffin, the British No 1 produced a gutsy performance as he found a way to unlock his game following a slow start to the three-hour and 28-minute contest.

He fed off the energy of the crowd on No 1 Court and showed nerves of steel to serve the match out at the first time of asking.

“I’m so happy to get through with such a great team, a great family and great friends here,” Norrie said on court.

“It wasn’t going my way from the beginning, I wasn’t feeling good or feeling the ball and that’s all credit to David. I couldn’t find my game and thanks to you guys [the crowd], I managed to stay as patient as I could.

“It was all just adrenaline, just used my legs at the end and tried to put the ball in the court. It was great to get over the line, for sure.”
