Novak Djokovic Beats Cameron Norrie To Reach Wimbledon Final

Novak Djokovic rallied from a shaky start to defeat Cameron Norrie in four sets on Friday at Wimbledon and advance to his record-equaling 32nd Grand Slam final, where he will face Nick Kyrgios. Defending champion Novak Djokovic ended British player Cameron Norries Wimbledon’s dreams and reached Sunday’s final, where he will look for his seventh title as he faces Nick Kyrgios. It was a shaky start for Novak Djokovic on Centre Court, losing the opening set in just 32 minutes before asserting his dominance to break British hearts and end Britain’s No.1 Cameron Norries dreams of repeating the heroics of Andy Murray in 2013 and 2016.

Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie made a great start in Wimbledon’s final, sweeping reigning champion Novak Djokovic in the first set. After earning two breaks of serve in the opening match, Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie took the opening by pulling Novak Djokovic down Center Court and hitting the winner over the Serb when he charged forward. In the eighth game of the first set, Norrie sent a long forehand that gave Djokovic a 5-3 lead.


Novak Djokovic finally took his fourth break point of the second set for a 5-3 lead as Britain’s Cameron Norrie sent a forehand long, but the damage was done by missing the flurries that he would have expected to be able to volley to make it 15-30. Midway through the first set, as Norrie was pushing forward, Djokovic settled into Djokovic’s chair and dangled his towel above his head, while a full-throated Centre Court crowd was cheering the home towner. Novak Djokovic vs. Cameron Norrie started quite aptly for the locals, who were hoping to see one of their reaches a men’s final, something that had been achieved by just one Briton, the double Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, since the start of the professional era in 1968.

Novak Djokovic was broken three times in the opening set, but turned the tables dramatically on Cameron Norrie, winning 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 under center court sunlight, and reaching his eighth All England Club final. A massive roar went up as Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie won his opening points on serve, with the British number one greeting his opening break with a jumping fist pump in what was arguably the biggest day of his 26-year-old career. Britain’s Cameron Norrie is the first British player since Johanna Konta in 2017 to reach a Wimbledon 2022 singles semifinal and was given partisan support at Centre Court.
