Follow all the action as the singles quarter-finals get underway on Day 9 at Wimbledon. Having ended the fairytale run of Tim van Rijthoven in the fourth round, defending champion Novak Djokovic took on the Italian No 10 seed Jannik Sinner, who defeated Spanish breakthrough star Carlos Alcaraz in the previous round. Sinner surged into a two-set lead on Centre Court but Djokovic fought back to win an epic in five sets - 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 - as the Serbian kept his hopes of a fourth straight men’s singles title at SW19 alive.

The second men’s quarter-final this afternoon saw Cameron Norrie - the British No 1 - come back from two sets to one down to beat world No 58 David Goffin 3-6, 7-5, 2-6, 6-3, 7-5 amid an incredible atmosphere on Court 1. Norrie is the last Briton standing in either singles draw and will face Djokovic in the semi-finals on Friday.

The Centre Court women’s quarter-finals also went the distance on Tuesday - with No 3 seed Ons Jabeur beating unseeded Czech marie Bouzkova 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 in the seoncd match on Centre Court. Earlier, Tatjana Maria won the all-German quarter-final on Court 1, beating Jule Niemeier 4-6, 6-2, 7-5.

20:10 , Kieran Jackson

Well what an evening it’s been at Wimbledon! Every singles match went the full distance and the net result is that Novak Djokovic is facing Cameron Norrie in the men’s singles semi-finals on Friday - and Ons Jabeur takes on Tatjana Maria in the women’s singles semis.

The Tunisian is through to the Wimbledon women’s singles semi-finals!

Cameron Norrie:

19:26 , Kieran Jackson

“Literally speechless... stayed as patient as I could and just tried to put the ball in the court. Winning a match like this gives me flashbacks to all the pre-seasons and the hard work and it feels pretty good.”

On playing Djokovic: “Enjoy it, take it to him and hopefully you guys can get behind me again! Looking forward to it, can’t enjoy it too much now and just get ready for Novak in a couple of days!”

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 5-7 Norrie

19:20 , Kieran Jackson

GAME, SET AND MATCH CAMERON NORRIE!

A few errors from Goffin on the forehand side brings the score to 30-0 before a wild Norrie forehand and then a forehand into the net makes it very nervy at 30-30.... but Norrie hits an ace down the T!

Match point - and Goffin hits a forehand passing shot winner! To deuce and Goffin hits a forehand long for a second match point and Goffin nets!

A first Wimbledon semi-final for Cameron Norrie! He will play Novak Djokovic on Friday! What a battle after three hours and 28 minutes!

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 5-6 Norrie*

19:14 , Kieran Jackson

NORRIE BREAKS!

What on earth do I know...! Terrific point at 0-15 - with both players volleying at the net - is won by Norrie for 0-30 amid a fever-pitch atmosphere!

Goffin then goes long - twice! - and Norrie breaks to love!

He will serve for a place in the Wimbledon semi-finals!

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 5-5 Norrie

19:10 , Kieran Jackson

Norrie holds to 15, again very comfortably.

Might be going a bit earlier here but given how easily the two players have held serve in this set, surely a first-to-10 tiebreak beckons...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 5-4 Norrie*

19:07 , Kieran Jackson

Goffin holds to love - Norrie didn’t have a sniff in that game given the Belgian’s excellent placement on serve.

A game away now is the Belgian - the British No 1 will serve to stay in the match.

A reminder if it goes 6-6, we have a tiebreak to 10 to decide the winner...

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 4-4 Norrie

19:05 , Kieran Jackson

Big, assured, confident hold from Norrie to 30, particularly the last point as he doesn’t rush on an overhead and a volley. Goffin, valiant in retrieving, can’t force the error.

Back to all-square at 4-4! No breaks of serve yet in this fifth set...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 4-3 Norrie*

19:01 , Kieran Jackson

Goffin holds to 15, sealing it after a terrific point to finish!

Nip and tuck, side-to-side, before Norrie eventually nets - almost of exhaustion - with a slice backhand in the service box.

Crunch time now...

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 3-3 Norrie

18:57 , Kieran Jackson

A hold to love for Cameron Norrie, that’ll do. Crowd are getting ever more vocal as we reach the business end of this final set...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 3-2 Norrie*

18:54 , Kieran Jackson

Cries of out at 15-15 for a deep Goffin forehand don’t matter as the Belgian eventually makes an error, but he holds from 15-30 with aplomb - big serving and an impressive overhead to seal it.

Still on serve... it’s getting tense here on Court 1...

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 2-2 Norrie

18:50 , Kieran Jackson

Norrie holds to 15 as he gives Goffin the runaround with a few drop shots and a few lobs!

2-2... on serve...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 2-1 Norrie*

18:46 , Kieran Jackson

A very easy hold to love there for Goffin - a few aces and unreturned serves... where was that in the fourth set?!

On serve in the fifth...

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 1-1 Norrie

18:44 , Kieran Jackson

Big hold for Norrie!

Goffin bludgeons a forehand return down the line for a winner at 30-30 and it’s break point for the Belgian... but Gofffin - in charge of the point - nets a forehand crosscourt!

The British No 1 eventually sees out the game as Goffin can’t find the court with a forehand - one apiece in the fifth set!

Wimbledon 2022: Centre Court update - Marie Bouzková has taken the first set 6-3 against third seed Ons Jabeur

18:38 , Kieran Jackson

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 1-0 Norrie*

18:37 , Kieran Jackson

Big hold for Goffin at the start of the fifth set... from 15-30!

Norrie goes astray with a few shots and then dumps a drop shot into the net...

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-6 Norrie

18:32 , Kieran Jackson

NORRIE WINS THE FOURTH SET!

We’re heading to another decider in the men’s quarter-finals! Norrie holds to 30 - after a couple of nervy moments at 40-0 - but Goffin can’t return Norrie’s first serve!

Into a fifth! A reminder - a first ever place in a Grand Slam semi-final is at stake for both players!

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-5 Norrie*

18:29 , Kieran Jackson

NORRIE BREAKS!

And what a mammoth game that was! With a brilliant forehand return winner which clips the line, Norrie drags the game back from 30-0 to 30-30 before Goffin nets with a mistimed forehand... break point! But Norrie goes long on a second-serve return - huge missed opportunity!

On ad Goffin, Norrie correctly challenges a first serve ace - with his last challenge - and then wins a groundstroke exchange! Goffin then blows a chance to see the game out with a inside-out forehand wide - and again on his own ad with a backhand pass long!

Norrie then has another break point chance after forehand pass cross-court from a drop-shot - and he takes it when Goffin nets on the forehand side!

A huge roar bellows around Court 1 - Norrie will serve for the fourth set!

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-4 Norrie

18:18 , Kieran Jackson

Norrie holds, to 15.

A smash and a drop shot to perfection sets up two game points for Norrie and Goffin pushes a forehand long to give away the game...

Norrie is keeping his neck in front here...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 3-3 Norrie*

18:14 , Kieran Jackson

Norrie had a glimpse, but it’s a significant hold from Goffin!

Norrie slams a backhand down the line right on the baseline to take the game to 30-30, before Goffin goes long with a forehand to bring up break point! But Goffin assuredly puts away a smash for deuce.

And Goffin remains rock soild from then on in, with Norrie hitting a forehand long and then a sliced backhand just wide...

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 2-3 Norrie

18:07 , Kieran Jackson

Goffin goes just wide with a backhand pass at 15-30, before a booming deep forehand and then a first serve means another vital hold for Norrie.

He’s hanging in there - and has the scoreboard advantage in this fourth set!

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 2-2 Norrie*

18:04 , Kieran Jackson

Like Goffin in the previous game, Norrie has 15-30 and a glimmer but Goffin snuffs it out pretty quick with some aggressive serving.

Norrie manages to get back to deuce - but the Belgian serves his way out of trouble pretty impressively, with Norrie returning a backhand into the net.

Two apiece.

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 1-2 Norrie

18:01 , Kieran Jackson

Norrie holds - big hold actually - after being down 15-30.

Pressure back on the Belgian at the start of the fourth...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 1-1 Norrie*

17:55 , Kieran Jackson

Goffin holds to 15, very solid from the Belgian too at the start of this set...

Norrie nets with a backhand down the line - all-square at 1-1.

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 0-1 Norrie

17:54 , Kieran Jackson

Big hold for Norrie that as he looks to build some much needed momentum - he closes it out from 30-30...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 6-2 Norrie*

17:47 , Kieran Jackson

GOFFIN WINS THE THIRD SET!

Bit of an odd conclusion to the third set in the exchange of breaks but Goffin does in the end get it done.

Norrie goes off for a toilet break as he looks to revitalise here. Can he come back from two sets to one down to salvage a place in the semi-finals?

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 5-2 Norrie

17:43 , Kieran Jackson

GOFFIN BREAKS

Ah dear, Cam. From 30-15 up, the Brit lets the game slip past him as Goffin smashes a backhand down the line...

Goffin will serve for the third set here...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 4-2 Norrie*

17:40 , Kieran Jackson

NORRIE BREAKS!

Maybe this third set isn’t done after all!! One break of two back for the British No 1...

Wimbledon 2022: *Goffin 6-3 5-7 4-1 Norrie

17:37 , Kieran Jackson

Norrie holds relatively comfortably to get on the board in the third set - important as he tries to rediscover some momentum here...

Wimbledon 2022: Goffin 6-3 5-7 4-0 Norrie*

17:31 , Kieran Jackson

Despite the British No 1 claiming the second set, Belgian star Goffin has stormed into a 4-0 lead in the third...

We’ll be live with game-by-game updates now from Court 1!

17:23 , Kieran Jackson

One set all in the other men’s singles quarter-final...

Novak Djokovic:

17:21 , Kieran Jackson

“This tournament is the most important one in my life. This court has inspired me to take the tennis racket to my end. Every time I step on this court the love affair keeps going!”

Novak Djokovic:

17:19 , Kieran Jackson

“Congrats to Jannik for a big fight today. I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of opportunities for him on the big stage, he has plenty of time but he had a great tournament.

“As for the first two sets compared to the last three, we had two different matches. I had a toilet break and had a little pep talk in the mirror... it’s actually true! I was fortunate to start the third set and I think that gave me a confidence boost. I guess the experience helped me to deal with the pressure in this kind of big match.

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-2 Sinner

17:15 , Kieran Jackson

GAME, SET AND MATCH NOVAK DJOKOVIC!

What a comeback from the six-time champion! He holds to love with some powerful serving and - from two sets down - the Serb lives to fight another day!

Heartbreak for Jannik Sinner, who gets a rousing reception as he leaves Centre Court! Djokovic will be the man in the semi-finals on Friday...

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 5-2 Sinner

17:11 , Kieran Jackson

DJOKOVIC BREAKS!

Sinner looks in trouble at 0-30 but produces two whipped forehands to claw it back to 30-30.

Djokovic then hits an unbelievable backhand cross court winner - whilst slipping! - and celebrates with a superman pose on the floor!

Sinner then crumbles at 30-40, following up a terrific serve with a wild drive volley long - and Djokovic now has the double break!

He’ll serve for a place in the semi-finals...

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 4-2 Sinner

17:06 , Kieran Jackson

Djokovic is looking so assured on his own serve at the momen - completely in control and taking the ball early in the rallies, forcing Sinner to do something special just to win a point!

Another hold to love - and he’s now just two games away from victory here!

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 3-2 Sinner

17:02 , Kieran Jackson

Sinner holds to love in the end! Djokovic going astray with a few shots in that game...

The Italian keeps on the Serb’s tail...

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 3-1 Sinner*

16:59 , Kieran Jackson

Djokovic oozing class and panache now!

He holds to love - a few drop shots to perfection, a few massive first serves... no problem for the No 1 seed.

How the tide has turned. Very important game coming up for Sinner now...

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 2-1 Sinner

16:56 , Kieran Jackson

DJOKOVIC BREAKS!

First blood to the Serb in the fifth set! At 15-40, Sinner holds his nerve to save one break point as he lets a Djokovic passing shot go just wide, but then amidst a backhand trade, the Italian opts for the backhand drop shot... but hits the net!

Djokovic turns for a steely look to his box. Sinner bows his head. The Italian now has it all to do...

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 1-1 Sinner*

16:50 , Kieran Jackson

Djokovic holds to 15. Nip and tuck here, best rallies of the match after three hours and 11 minutes of play!

Sinner just going astray on a couple of occasions...

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 0-1 Sinner

16:47 , Kieran Jackson

Big, big hold from Jannik Sinner to start the fifth set!

The rallies are lengthy here too with both players dialled in on their backhands in particular, but the Italian uses his serve to see out the game and turns to his box with a big fist pump!

First game to the tenth seed...

DJOKOVIC WINS THE FOURTH SET!

To a decider we go! Sinner put up a fight in that game but ultimately, the Serb uses his big first serve to get himself out of any trouble.

16:33 , Kieran Jackson

Uh oh, drama here!

Sinner has a break point at 30-40 but as he dramatically tries to reach Djokovic’s drop volley, he slips and lands heavily on the turf!

He looks in some pain but Djokovic goes over to help him up - and the Italian looks fine to continue without any medical attention!

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 5-2 Sinner

16:27 , Kieran Jackson

Sinner at least asks the question of Djokovic - holding to 15 - but the Serb will have at least two chances to take this to a fifth and deciding set.

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 5-1 Sinner*

16:23 , Kieran Jackson

Once more, Sinner is not getting a look in on Djokovic’s serve now. Another comfortable hold, to 15.

If the Serb keeps up this rate of serving, it’s hard to see how Sinner can win a third set out here with all signs a deciding set is incoming...

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 4-1 Sinner

16:19 , Kieran Jackson

Both players hold in doubly quick time - a much-needed game on the scoreboard for Sinner in this fourth set, who holds to 30 despite being 40-0 up.

Advantage still very much with Djokovic though in the fourth.

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 3-0 Sinner

16:12 , Kieran Jackson

DJOKOVIC BREAKS AGAIN!

Another game on the Sinner serve which goes to deuce but the Italian cannot salvage the hold! Djokovic is in full flow now at the back of the court. Dialled in, he isn’t missing a thing whereas the Italian isn’t quite as consistent.

Sinner goes wide with an ambitious forehand cross-court shot and Djokovic now has plenty of breathing space in the fourth set with the double break.

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 2-0 Sinner*

16:05 , Kieran Jackson

Djokovic holds to 15 despite some lengthy rallies - but Sinner just isn’t seeing the ball cleanly anymore, particularly compared to the first two sets.

Momentum firmly with the Serb now on Centre...

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 1-0 Sinner

16:01 , Kieran Jackson

DJOKOVIC BREAKS!

Pretty patchy game that by Sinner, with double faults and unforced errors included - a forehand shank and backhand long from deuce gifts Djokovic the perfect start to the fourth set.

The 20-year-old looks to have lost his way slightly - for the first time this afternoon after two hours and 33 minutes of action.

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 6-3 Sinner*

15:54 , Kieran Jackson

DJOKOVIC WINS THE THIRD SET!

Supreme serving from the Serb takes him to 40-0 and despite Sinner hitting a brilliant passing shot winner on the run with his forehand, Djokovic makes no mistake at 40-15 as a thumping serve down the T is too hot for the Italian to handle.

One down, two to go for the No 1 seed!

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 5-3 Sinner

15:50 , Kieran Jackson

Sinner holds... just!

Djokovic has two set points at 15-40 but Sinner fights hard - particularly at 30-40 - to save them as Djokovic nets.

At deuce, Sinner correctly challenges a serve down the T which Djokovic netted, and then hits an ace out wide!

Nonetheless, the No 1 seed will now serve for the third set.

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 5-2 Sinner*

15:44 , Kieran Jackson

Djokovic holds to 15.

Point of the match to open the game up, with Sinner winning it with a beautifully judged backhand lob to conclude a lengthy exchange!

Yet from there, Djokovic finds his range on first serve, not giving the Italian any openings at all. And he’s now a game away from the third set.

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 4-2 Sinner

15:40 , Kieran Jackson

Sinner holds to 15 and takes a stern look at his box - he’s not done with this third set just yet!

A much needed solid and simple hold for the Italian - pressure back on Djokovic...

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 4-1 Sinner*

15:36 , Kieran Jackson

Terrific game - Djokovic holds!

Barnstorming point at 30-30, with both men drawn to the net before Sinner nets a backhand volley - to loud gasps from the crowd!

Djokovic gestures to the crowd to get them pumped up - most oblige, some boo!

The Serb wins the game with a backhand crosscourt winner and he has a three-game cushion in the third set!

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 3-1 Sinner

15:30 , Kieran Jackson

DJOKOVIC BREAKS!

And it’s a convincing break at that - to love! Sinner going wild with a few groundstrokes in that game, just losing his rhythm slightly and the Serb capitalises!

The comeback is on...

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 2-1 Sinner*

15:25 , Kieran Jackson

Despite missing out on the break, Djokovic remains solid on his serve in the third set and holds to 15 - Sinner blazing a forehand return wide to conclude the game...

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 1-1 Sinner

15:23 , Kieran Jackson

Big hold from Sinner!

Djokovic has a sniff at advantage but it’s wiped out by a raking inside-out forehand winner by Sinner. Then after a big serve out wide, Sinner passes Djokovic with a forehand down the line after the Serb was drawn in by a drop shot!

The 20-year-old doesn’t look fazed at all out here today. Yet...

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-6 1-0 Sinner*

15:17 , Kieran Jackson

Djokovic holds to 15 comfortably - and having taken a toilet break after that second set, looks a bit more replenished and focused out on court.

We’ve been here before. Bet against the Serb at your peril, despite the scoreline...

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-6 Sinner

15:12 , Kieran Jackson

SINNER WINS THE SECOND SET!

The Italian recovers from 0-30 to 30-30 before Djokovic - once again - goes awry on the forehand side. Set point - and a big serve out wide does it with Djokovic’s return long!

To put this into perspective, Djokovic has not lost a completed match at Wimbledon since 2016. He won the title from 2018-2021 (no tournament in 2020) and lost in the 2017 quarter-finals after retiring in the second set. History beckons here...

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-5 Sinner*

15:06 , Kieran Jackson

SINNER BREAKS AGAIN!

Djokovic again is his own worst enemy in this game as he goes long with a forehand - and gets extemely lucky at 30-40 as a net cord sees his backhand claw over onto Sinner’s side!

The Serb, with a wry smile, holds his hands up in apology but at deuce, Djokovic double faults! Then with Sinner’s backhand return called out on the baseline, he challenges, it’s called in, and with Djokovic’s forehand falling into the net... it’s the Italian’s game!

A double break for the 10th seed who will now serve for a two sets to love lead!

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 2-4 Sinner

15:00 , Kieran Jackson

A few errors from the Sinner racket - including a simple backhand volley - gives Djokovic a glimpse at 30-30 but again the Serb opts for the drop shot to no avail, with Sinner quick off the mark to whip away a forehand winner.

A serve-drive volley combination sees out the game for the Italian, his two-game lead restored!

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 2-3 Sinner*

14:54 , Kieran Jackson

In the grand scheme of the match, that’s probably quite an important hold for Djokovic - to 15 - as he tries to claw back some of the momentum here.

Sinner goes wide with a backhand pass but still has the break at the change of ends!

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 1-3 Sinner

14:51 , Kieran Jackson

A hold to love for Sinner, who looks completely in control of the occasion out there.

Djokovic, meanwhile, looks a little lost and zoned out, making error after error on the forehand side..

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 1-2 Sinner*

14:47 , Kieran Jackson

SINNER BREAKS!

Sinner is really the aggressor now, and is taking the initiative of every really! He wins a terrific point at the net at 15-30 to bring up two break points before Djokovic uncharacteristically goes long on the backhand side!

A set and a break now... excellent from the Italian, but what’s going on with Djokovic?!

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 1-1 Sinner

14:43 , Kieran Jackson

Sinner comfortably holds to love, finding his range on first-serve and not giving Djokovic any room for error on return.

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-7 1-0 Sinner*

14:42 , Kieran Jackson

Much more like it from Djokovic to start the second set, holding to 15 with aplomb as he gives Sinner the run around...

Arguably the biggest moments of Sinner’s career coming up over the next few hours - Djokovic will not want to give the Italian any sort of respite at all.

Wimbledon 2022: *Djokovic 5-7 Sinner

14:35 , Kieran Jackson

SINNER WINS THE FIRST SET!

Gutsy gutsy forehand drop shot by Sinner - but it’s perfect to bring up set point again... and a huge serve forces the return into the net from Djokovic.

Well, well, well, who saw this one coming?! Work to do for the No 1 seed!

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-6 Sinner* (40-40)

14:34 , Kieran Jackson

Sinner starts the game witha miscued forehand wide and then a double fault at 15-15 to put the pressure on himself - yet Djokovic goes long with a routine forehand twice!

Set point - and Sinner slips as he hits his forehand wide! To deuce we go...

Wimbledon 2022: Djokovic 5-6 Sinner*

14:29 , Kieran Jackson

SINNER BREAKS!

Patchy game from Djokovic as he continues to persevere with the use of the backhand drop shot, but Sinner is quick and reads the play well - twice!

At 15-40, the 10th seed takes the initiative in the rally brilliantly and Djokovic can only get a frame to a crushing forehand cross-court from his opponent.

Wow what a turnaround here - Sinner will serve for the opening set!

Maria’s tricky slices are struggling to stave off the power-hitting of Niemeier but she manages to avoid a second break of serve in the opening set.

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic has made an ominous start on Centre Court, immediately racing to three break points in Sinner’s opening service game. The Italian saves the first with a huge forehand after a terrific rally but then Djokovic strikes and the defending champion leads 2-0.

Wimbledon star Nick Kyrgios charged with assaulting ex-girlfriend

12:47 , Kieran Jackson

Nick Kyrgios has been charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend in an incident that allegedly occurred late last year, according to reports in Australia.

Kyrgios, who features in the Wimbledon quarter-finals tomorrow, is accused of attacking model Chiara Passari and is set to appear in court next month.

“ACT Policing can confirm a 27-year-old Watson man is scheduled to face the ACT Magistrates Court on the 2nd of August in relation to one charge of common assault following an incident in December 2021,” police said on Tuesday.

Barrister Jason Moffett, who represents Kyrgios, confirmed to The Canberra Times that his client was aware of the charge.

“It’s in the context of a domestic relationship,” he said. “The nature of the allegation is serious, and Mr Kyrgios takes the allegation very seriously.

Campaigners wearing “Where is Peng Shuai?” t-shirts at Wimbledon said they have been confronted by “suspicious” security staff.

The group of men said they arrived at the championships on Monday morning via the queue but did not change into their t-shirts until they were inside the grounds.

They said they had come to Wimbledon to “raise a bit of awareness” after the conversation around the Chinese tennis player had “died down”.

The former Wimbledon doubles champion disappeared from public view last year after she accused a senior Chinese official of sexual assault in November 2021.

She later appeared on state media but observers said the appearances seemed to be staged in response to foreign pressure.

Will Hoyles, 39, one of the campaigners who works for the Free Tibet campaign, said they were quickly confronted by “suspicious” security staff as they walked around the Wimbledon grounds on Monday.

Speaking to the PA news agency, he said: “We came trying to raise a bit of awareness but Wimbledon have managed to make it worse for themselves by harassing us.”

Mr Hoyles added: “They were asking loads of questions about what we were going to do, why we were here, you know, what we’d already done etc.

“And we told them we’d just been wandering around and we’d spoken to a few people and that’s when they seemed to get quite suspicious.”

He added that the staff told them they “should not approach anyone to talk to them”.

“They said repeatedly the club doesn’t like to be political,” he said. “We said to them we don’t believe the message is political because we are simply asking where a tennis player is, where a Wimbledon champion is.

“We think that’s a fairly easy thing to ask and I think given the support we’ve had from people around the grounds I think lots of people are asking the same question so I don’t think it’s a political message.”

Cameron Norrie, the last Briton standing at Wimbledon, has urged the home fans to get behind him when he plays his maiden Grand Slam quarter-final, against Belgian David Goffin, on Court One on Tuesday.

British hopes faded when Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray were knocked out in the second round while Heather Watson and Katie Boulter gave the local fans a glimmer of hope before they, too, were ousted last week.

“Unfortunately, yeah, I’m the last one standing. But I think it’s even more reason for everyone to get behind me,” ninth seed Norrie said.

Ranked 12th in the world, Norrie, 26, said he felt comfortable taking the baton from three-times major winner Murray so that he could pave the way for the next generation of British tennis.

“If I can help any of the younger guys, there’s a big group of guys coming through with a lot of talent, a lot of chances to make it inside the top 100,” Norrie said.

“If I can be that guy to lead them on and to show they can do it... I went to college, I can show them a good path, if you can stay professional and make good decisions.

“Managed to make the quarters of a Slam doing that, I was really pleased with myself.”

Novak Djokovic has said the late start times on the All England Club’s two main showcourts is effectively turning Wimbledon into an indoor tournament for the players scheduled to contest the day’s final matches in those arenas.

The reigning champion beat wildcard Tim van Rijthoven in four sets under the Centre Court lights on Sunday, setting up a quarter-final against young gun Jannik Sinner in a match that finished at about 10.40pm local time (2140 GMT).

“I don’t see a reason why there wouldn’t be an earlier start,” Djokovic told reporters, referring to the 1pm and 1.30pm local start times on No. 1 Court and Centre Court respectively. Action on the remaining courts starts at 11am.

“If you’re scheduled last on the Centre, you’re going to end up a match under the roof, which changes the conditions, the style of play, the way you move on the court. It’s more slippery. The lights.

“It’s really an indoor tournament in most of the cases when you’re scheduled last on Centre or Court One.”

Cameron Norrie will carry the hopes of the nation on Tuesday when he walks out to play David Goffin for a place in the Wimbledon semi-finals.

The British number one’s clash will take place on Court One, with the defending champion Novak Djokovic given the privilege of the men’s quarter-final slot on Centre Court.

Third seed Ons Jabeur is also in action on the women’s side of the draw.

Here’s a preview of today’s action:

Former Wimbledon winners Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep eased into the quarter-finals after straight-set victories on day eight of the Championships.

Nick Kyrgios joined the pair in the latter stages of the third major of the year but required a decider against Brandon Nakashima to equal his best run at a grand slam.

Cameron Norrie: How Britain’s home hope ‘squeezed the lemon’ on road to Wimbledon quarter-finals

11:42 , Lawrence Ostlere

“It’s pretty interesting,” Cameron Norrie replied, as the British No 1 and the hope of Wimbledon was asked how British he really felt. A tennis player born in South Africa to a Welsh mother and Scottish father, raised in New Zealand and whose college education took him to the United States now carries the weight of a nation at the All England Club. As the question implied, though, which one? “My background is obviously from various places,” Norrie went on. “But I’m living here, based here...”

It means there will be a British quarter-finalist at Wimbledon, with Norrie becoming just the fifth man in the open era to reach the last eight of the Championships, but he won’t be playing on Centre Court. Instead, Norrie will face Belgium’s David Goffin on Court No 1, scheduled second to Novak Djokovic’s match with Jannik Sinner, and so the unassuming 26-year-old continues to fly under the spotlight that his unheralded rise to the top level of the sport has yet to grab.

That may be beginning to change.

Elsewhere, in the ladies’ doubles on No 2 court, the second seeds Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova are in trouble after going two breaks down in the opening set against Nicole Melichar-Martinez and Ellen Perez.

One player who has leapt to Kyrgios’ defence is in fact his opponent in the quarter-final, Cristian Garin, who won a thrilling five-set match against Alex De Minaur yesterday.

“I think Nick is very good player. For me, maybe the best serve on tour,” the Chilean said. “Yeah, I’m in quarter-finals, you know you will play the best players in the world. He is for me one of the guys that I like to watch. He’s very good for tennis.

“I think Nick has to be seeded because he for me is one of the best players on the tour and on grass obviously. I mean, the opportunities you have to build. If we are in this round, we both beat good players.

“I don’t see like an opportunity. I just want to enjoy, play my best, and fight every point as I always do.”

When Kyrgios stepped out on court, his fellow Australian De Minaur was two sets up against Garin but the 26-year-old produced a sensational comeback and saved two match points before he edged a thrilling tie-break to claim a 2-6 5-7 7-6 (3) 6-4 7-6 (6) victory.

“I look at it as a big opportunity,” Kyrgios admitted. “Garin is obviously playing great tennis. I walked on Centre Court with seeing the score two sets to love De Minaur. They were in a battle.

“I was expecting to play Alex. I think Alex is a bit more comfortable on the grass. Then when I walked off the court and I got told it was Garin. It was surprising.

“I look at it as an opportunity but I need to do so many things before that match to get ready.”

Of course, the talk of Wimbledon remains Nick Kyrgios, who came through a five-set thriller against Brandon Nakashima. He is playing the role of the hero and the villain, often at the same time, and is taking delight in knowing that “so many people are upset” by his progress to the quarter-finals.

Novak Djokovic faces what should, at least on paper, be his toughest test of the tournament so far in Jannik Sinner on Centre Court this afternoon. However, the defending champion certainly didn’t have it all his own way in the previous round as he ended Tim van Rijthoven’s fairytale run in four sets.

Tatjana Maria is the oldest player left in the women’s singles draw at 34 years old and, this time last year, she was on maternity leave after giving birth to her second child.

Ahead of her fourth-round match on Sunday, she took her eldest daughter, Charlotte, to practice. In the afternoon, the world No 103 knocked out the twelfth seed and former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko to reach the quarter-finals.

“Automatically people think, ‘OK, she got a child, so that’s it’,’ Maria said. “[But] there was always the belief I can do it.”

Welcome back to The Independent’s live coverage of Wimbledon as the quarter-finals get underway on Day 9.

In the women’s draw, the favourite Ons Jabeur, who is yet to drop a set in four matches, takes on the world No 66 Marie Bouzkova. The 23-year-old Czech has shocked many this fortnight after she defeated seventh seed Danielle Collins in the first round and then pulled off another upset on Sunday by defeating Caroline Garcia.

The second women’s quarter-final being played today is an all-German match-up between Tatjana Maria and Jule Niemeier. It is the first time Maria, 34, has made it past the third round of a grand slam since 2015 while Niemeier, 23, is competing in the main singles draw at Wimbledon for the first time.

In the men’s draw, Novak Djokovic continues his bid for a fourth successive Wimbledon title against Italian No 10 seed Jannik Sinner. Djokovic has looked somewhere close to his imperious best but did have to stave off a brief comeback against Tim van Rijthoven in the previous round.

The second quarter-final sees Cameron Norrie, the last Briton standing, take on David Goffin. Norrie has grown in confidence through the tournament and defeated both Steve Johnson and Tommy Paul in straight sets, however, Goffin, 31, has shown form in the past at Wimbledon and made the quarter-finals in 2019 too.
