British No. 1 Cameron Norrie reached the Wimbledon semi-finals for the first time after an epic five-set win over David Goffen.

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 defeat Jannik Sinner in five sets earlier on Tuesday.

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

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

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

“I’m very happy to deal with such a great team, great family and great friends here,” Norrie said on the court.

“It didn’t go my way from the start, I didn’t feel good or feel the ball and that’s a credit to David. I couldn’t find my game and thanks to you guys [the crowd]I managed to stay as patient as possible.

“It was all just adrenaline, just using my legs at the end and trying to get the ball up the court. It was great to get over the line, for sure.”
