- Norrie dared to believe after snatching first set from Djokovic
- Six-time champion ground down Briton to win 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4
Cameron Norrie had two long days to think about exactly what he could do to get under Novak Djokovic’s skin in the biggest match of his life, the semi-finals of Wimbledon on Centre Court. For many challengers over the years, that would have been just enough time to overthink it all, to grasp the significance of the occasion and immediately flame out.
But the 26-year-old rose up to the challenge from the beginning. He started fast and strong, imposing himself on the six-time champion and imploring him to keep up as he established an early lead.
