After Andy Murray pulled out, Cameron Norrie became the hosts’ biggest hope of success at Wimbledon. And the 26-year-old from London lives up to the expectations placed on him. On Tuesday, he aroused his countrymen’s jubilation, as he won promotion to the semi-finals. After three and a half hours of battle David defeated Goffin 3:6, 7:5, 2:6, 6:3, 7:5.
Both may have the impression that they are facing each other’s version. They both offer identical patterns. They rely on playing from the finish line, making great saves and playing shots placed as close to the finish line as possible, trying to push their opponent off the field.
The match was very close to the start. The initiative was passed from side to side and none of the players in the long run were able to gain much advantage. This resulted in a 2-2 draw after four sets.

In the fifth game, after a rough start, they both managed to maintain their websites. When a super tie-break seemed to determine the fate of the match, Nouri faced 11 break opportunities in the match, with Goffin delivering a forehand in the car. After a few moments, the Briton finished the duel in his own position and made the local fans very happy.
For the 26-year-old from London, this is his first Grand Slam semi-final appearance. He also became the first Briton to win a Wimbledon 1/2 final since Murray won the title in 2016.
In the ninth final match, Nouri will face top seeded cup and defending champion, Novak Djokovic. This will be the second match between these tennis players. In last year’s ATP Finals, the Serbian won 6:2, 6:1.
