Wimbledon 2022 - LIVE!

For 32 minutes on a baking hot Centre Court, the dream of a British man once again reaching the Wimbledon singles final was well and truly alive. Cameron Norrie was clinical, Novak Djokovic out of sorts and the ninth seed threatened something very special as he stromed through the first set. The first seven games of the second were solid too.

But there’s a reason, plenty of them in fact, why Djokovic has now gone 1,822 days without a Wimbledon defeat. Any setback only appears temporary, punches taken never a knockout blow, and so it proved. He took his chance at the end of the second set and never looked back as the top seed eased to a 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-4 victory,

Djokovic will walk out on Sunday as a Grand Slam finalist for the 32nd time, a record no male singles player in the history of the sport can match. That will be his eighth at Wimbledon. He will face a fresh Nick Kyrgios, who had a walkover in the semi-finals after Rafael Nadal’s abdominal injury curtailed the Spaniard’s calendar Slam bid.

For 32 minutes on a baking hot Centre Court, the dream of a British man once again reaching the Wimbledon singles final was well and truly alive.

Cameron Norrie was clinical, Novak Djokovic out of sorts and the ninth seed threatened something very special as he stromed through the first set. The first seven games of the second were solid too.

But there’s a reason, plenty of them in fact, why Djokovic has now gone 1,822 days without a Wimbledon defeat. Any setback only appears temporary, punches taken never a knockout blow, and so it proved. He took his chance at the end of the second set and never looked back as the top seed eased to a 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-4 victory.

Norrie ‘loved every moment’ of Wimbledon run

19:10 , Matt Verri

Cameron Norrie believes his Wimbledon campaign will make him a better player in the long run as it ultimately ended in semi-final disappointment to Novak Djokovic.

The British number one arrived at SW19 having never previously made it past the third round of a Grand Slam but that’s a record he’s now firmly improved on, finally producing the kind of major run his world ranking of 12 deserves.

He was bidding to become just the second British man, along with Andy Murray, to reach a Wimbledon singles final in the Open Era and made a flying start on Centre Court as he took the opening set against the six-time champion.

But Djokovic swiftly hit his stride from that point onwards as he sealed a 2-6 6-2 6-4 6-4 victory to reach a record 32nd Grand Slam final. Norrie intends to reach his first in the near future.

“Loved it, loved every moment of it,” Norrie said of his run to the semi-finals.

Djokovic on final against Kyrgios

18:22 , Matt Verri

“The job is not finished. One thing is for sure there are going to be a lot of fireworks emotionally from both.

“It’s going to be his first Grand Slam final. Obviously he’s very excited and he doesn’t have much to lose.

“He’s playing so freely. He has one of the biggest serves in the game. We haven’t played for some time.

“I’ve never won a set off him. Hopefully it can be different this time. It’s another final for me at Wimbledon so hopefully the experience can work in my favour.”

Some reaction from Djokovic...

18:12 , Matt Verri

“I didn’t start off well. He was the better player for the first set. I’ve had many semi-finals in Grand Slams in the past but it’s never easy walking out on court.

“You have a lot of pressure and expectations on yourself and from others.

“Cameron didn’t have much to lose. I wish him all the best. He’s a great player. I have a lot of respect for him.”

18:05 , Matt Verri

Eight Wimbledon finals now for Djokovic, 32 in all. No male singles player can match that record.

Kyrgios will play his first - bit of a contrast in experience! Dare say Kyrgios won’t be too bothered about that though...

Save the date!

17:56 , Matt Verri

GAME, SET, MATCH! Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-4 Norrie

17:54 , Matt Verri

Norrie can’t afford to be gifting points at this stage. Forehand sails long. Great depth with this one though, Djokovic can’t get it back. 15-15.

Ace down the T from Djokovic, but Norrie continues to hang in there. Not going down without a fight. 30-30. Return long from Norrie as Djokovic goes for the serve and volley. Match point!

DJOKOVIC INTO THE FINAL AGAIN!

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 *5-4 Norrie

17:49 , Matt Verri

Norrie serving to stay in the match and it’s a confident start, two big first serves get the job done. 30-0.

The Brit does a decent job with a crosscourt forehand, but Djokovic is able to get it to drop just over the net on the stretch. Too good again.

Return long from Djokovic this time... and again. Norrie does his job. Over to Djokovic.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 5-3* Norrie

17:46 , Matt Verri

Second serve for Norrie to attack. Goes too hard at it though, long way beyond the baseline. Djokovic’s backhand down the line that follows is also out. 15-15.

Ace from Djokovic followed by a forehand winner after working Norrie around the corner. Top seed giving Norrie nothing on his serve.

And another ace. Djokovic one game away.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 *4-3 Norrie

17:42 , Matt Verri

Djokovic applauds an ace out wide to start the game. Not sure it’s a great sign for the Brit, suggests Djokovic is feeling very comfortable with the situation.

A poor overhead from Norrie but he follows it with a flat backhand down the line. Lovely shot. 30-15. That’s brilliant from the Brit too, his box are on their feet. Runs down the drop shot and finds space for the forehand.

Long forehand from Djokovic, really solid game from Norrie. Is it too late though?

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 4-2* Norrie

17:39 , Matt Verri

Norrie hasn’t had a break point since the opening set, got to find one very soon if he’s to stay in the match.

Djokovic slides after the crosscourt backhand, responds with one of his own and Norrie then can’t clear the net as he looks to go down the line. 40-0.

Ace seals yet another routine hold for the top seed.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 *3-2 Norrie

17:35 , Matt Verri

This time it’s advantage Norrie, as he powers a backhand winner down the line.

Djokovic sends the ball into orbit and when it drops, Norrie is waiting to put away the smash. It was a massive battle but he holds! Centre Court celebrates it like he’s won the match.

17:33 , Matt Verri

Deep return from Djokovic skids on and Norrie can’t stay low enough on the shot. 15-30. That helps the Norrie cause, Djokovic unable to clear the net with the drop shot.

Break point Djokovic! Norrie sticks a hand out and gets a racquet on the pass, but it flies beyond the baseline. Saved! Massive forehand winner from Norrie. Deuce.

Another break point - drop shot followed by a volley into the open court. How many times have we seen that? Saved again. More flat hitting from Norrie and he puts away the forehand at the net. Deuce once more.

Take three. Drop shot again from Djokovic, Norrie tries to bend it round the net but can’t do so. The Brit won’t go away though. Delivered every time on the big point in this game. Guess what? A fourth break point. Met with an ace by Norrie!

Hanging on for dear life.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 3-1* Norrie

17:24 , Matt Verri

Great point from Norrie and Centre Court approves. It’s the Brit who turns to the drop shot this time and makes Djokovic work, before putting the forehand away.

Swinging ace out wide is perfectly placed. And then one down the T for good measure. 40-15.

Norrie gets a racquet on this one but no more than that. Djokovic holds.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 *2-1 Norrie

17:20 , Matt Verri

Better from Norrie, but he’s having to be so aggressive to win points. Forehand just about catches the baseline - pretty much has to be that good right now.

Good deep backhand, Djokovic nets and Norrie is on the board in the set.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 2-0* Norrie

17:18 , Matt Verri

This is rapidly getting away from Norrie now. Sliced return flies long and Djokovic is 30-0 up.

Long once more from Norrie, a swift hold to love.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 *1-0 Norrie

17:16 , Matt Verri

Double fault from Norrie - goes without saying that he really has to hold here. Sends that long though, 30-30. Pressure immediately on his serve again.

Good aggressive backhand, Djokovic’s lob floats long. Norrie finds the net once more - deuce.

Two more unforced errors from Norrie, Djokovic’s box on their feet. He has a break at the start of the fourth set!

17:10 , Matt Verri

Djokovic had 12 unforced errors in the first set, and then nine across the next two. He’s cleaned things right up.

Norrie not having anything like the kind of success he enjoyed early on

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 6-2 Norrie

17:07 , Matt Verri

Norrie moves forward for the second-serve return but sends it low into the net. The Brit seems to be spending most of his time chasing down drop shots, not a particularly enjoyable task in this heat. He can only flick this one back to Djokovic who has a routine volley into an open court. 30-15.

Ace down the T - two set points Djokovic.

Djokovic takes the third set! Forehand into the net from Norrie and he’s somehow got to find a way to win the next two sets.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 *5-2 Norrie

17:03 , Matt Verri

Better start to the game from Norrie, but he then slaps a couple of forehands into the net. 30-30 and Djokovic fancies his chances of getting the job done right here.

That’s good from the Brit, chases down the drop shot and puts away the backhand. Return from Djokovic is long and Norrie at least asks the top seed the question of whether he can serve the set out.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 5-1* Norrie

17:00 , Matt Verri

Norrie gets a bit of fortune with the net cord but even that isn’t enough to win the point. Djokovic scoops it back, Norrie doesn’t get anywhere near enough on the lob and it’s a simple smash for Djokovic.

Attempt at a backhand pass from Norrie lands wide and Djokovic is a game away from the set.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 *4-1 Norrie

16:56 , Matt Verri

Norrie having to work so hard for every point. Worked around the court, does well to get the ball back but Djokovic is waiting at the net to put the volley away. 15-30.

Timely first serve from the Brit, but he then nets a forehand. Break point Djokovic and this would give him complete control of the set.

Which he has! Long from Norrie and Djokovic is marching towards the third set.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 3-1* Norrie

16:52 , Matt Verri

Djokovic points at the baseline in disgust as he sends a forehand into the net.

Quickly gets things back on track though, forehand winner followed by an ace out wide. 40-15. And another one next point. Not much Norrie can do about that.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 *2-1 Norrie

16:48 , Matt Verri

Couple of confident forehands from Norrie help settle him down after a bit of a stumbling spell. He then gets given a simple volley to put away and has not problem doing so.

Djokovic sends the return wide, there’s the hold for Norrie. Massive response from Centre Court to try and rally their man.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 2-0* Norrie

16:45 , Matt Verri

Everything going Djokovic’s way now. Forehand hits the top of the net and drops perfectly onto Norrie’s side of the court. Hands up in apology won’t make the Brit feel any better.

It’s then a wild overhead from Norrie and Djokovic has a hold to love.

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 *1-0 Norrie

16:42 , Matt Verri

Applause from Djokovic as Norrie chases down a drop shot and flicks it past the Serbian down the line. Can always rely on the Brit to run everything down.

Norrie has another drop shot to get after, but he can’t get this one back in play. 15-30... Norrie has to find a way to hold here. Confident smash at the net is a good response.

Break point Djokovic though, challenge doesn’t save Norrie there. Norrie saves it! Big fist pump as he puts away another overhead. Deuce. Forehand long from Norrie, Djokovic has another break point. Saved again! Djokovic left in a heap as he slips behind the baseline, don’t think he was getting to the that anyway.

Take three, Norrie dumps a backhand into the net. Djokovic breaks! Shank from Norrie and Djokovic has the break.

Big response from the top seed...

16:33 , Matt Verri

Djokovic 2-6 6-3 Norrie

16:30 , Matt Verri

Double fault from Djokovic and Norrie then piles the pressure on to get to 0-30. Big couple of points coming up.

Challenge from Norrie as he can’t get a first serve back. Was comfortably in from Djokovic. Norrie then completely shanks a forehand. 30-30. Backhand out from Norrie - set point Djokovic.

And there’s the set! Norrie goes long again and Djokovic has levelled the match!

Djokovic 2-6 *5-3 Norrie

16:25 , Matt Verri

Centre Court celebrating a Norrie volley before he’s even hit it - when he does he sends it out. Should have been routine.

And it could prove very costly. Djokovic to the net, backhand down the line and Norrie can’t get it back. Two break points for Djokovic!

He needs just one! Forehand long from Norrie and that’s a really poor game from the Brit. Djokovic will serve for the set.

Djokovic 2-6 4-3* Norrie

16:22 , Matt Verri

Norrie briefly loses his footing behind the baseline, gathers himself quickly but Djokovic whips a forehand winner down the line. Follows it with an ace - he’s been so much better on serve in this second set. Norrie struggling to make an impact on it.

Backhand return from the Brit is long, a hold to love for Djokovic.

Djokovic 2-6 *3-3 Norrie

16:19 , Matt Verri

Djokovic lobs the ball up, asking Norrie the question with the overhead. The Brit doesn’t have the answer, sends it straight into the net. 15-30. Again he has a solid response though, another punishing rally and Norrie comes out on top.

That’s wide though - forehand lets Norrie down. Break point Norrie! Saves it, Djokovic’s sliced return floats just long. He challenges but it is indeed out. Deuce.

Second chance coming up for Djokovic though. Again he can’t take it! Goes for a crosscourt pass but he nets it. Back to deuce.

And Norrie grinds out another hold, met with a ‘Come on’ from the Brit.

Djokovic 2-6 3-2* Norrie

16:12 , Matt Verri

Norrie runs down the drop shot, dinks it back over the net but Djokovic makes a nice backhand down the line. And another one, this time even better. 30-15.

Attempt at the forehand pass from Norrie is long, and so is the second-serve return next point. Djokovic edges ahead in the second set at the changeover.

Djokovic 2-6 *2-2 Norrie

16:08 , Matt Verri

Lovely from Djokovic, forehand pass is perfect as it drops just inside the line. He then does so well to stay in the rally, Norrie hammering away with the forehand but Djokovic holds firm. That forces the Brit to go for too much and it’s just out. 30-30.

Break point Djokovic! Norrie looks to back up the power with a deft drop shot, but it doesn’t clear the net.

He saves it, forehand sets up the point and he puts away the volley at the net. Challenge from Djokovic and a terrible one at that. Deuce.

Ace down the T, before Djokovic then nets a second-serve return. Big hold.

Djokovic 2-6 2-1* Norrie

16:02 , Matt Verri

Two long forehands from Norrie - Djokovic hasn’t lost a point on serve since he put this cap on.

Flat backhand down the line, Norrie does well to force Djokovic to hit another shot but he’s comfortable over the smash. Another routine hold for the top seed.

Djokovic 2-6 *1-1 Norrie

15:59 , Matt Verri

Norrie scrambling to stay in the point, no room for the backhand pass though and Djokovic has a simple enough volley at the net. The Brit then gets the slice all wrong, 30-30.

That’s lovely touch though, a deft volley from Norrie just about clears the net. Slice from Djokovic is then long and Norrie battles his way to a hold.

Djokovic 2-6 1-0* Norrie

15:55 , Matt Verri

Cap on for Djokovic at the start of the second set. He’ll hope it brings a far less sloppy display.

Early signs are good, a couple of cheap points on set and he’s swiftly 40-0 up. Norrie then nets a backhand and Djokovic has a hold to love to help steady the ship.

Djokovic 2-6 Norrie

15:51 , Matt Verri

So, Norrie serving for the first set. He’ll have another chance if he can’t take this one.

Djokovic goes for the slice as he moves to the net, lands long though. He goes for a forehand down the line next point, into the net. The unforced errors continue to flow. 30-0.

Double fault from Norrie, followed by an ace down the T. Two set points!

First one goes with another double fault but once again it’s an ace next point! Norrie takes the first set after a dream 32 minutes.

Djokovic 2-5* Norrie

15:47 , Matt Verri

Djokovic with so many unforced errors already, a couple of really poor forehands and Norrie has another chance at 15-30. Top seed has not got going at all.

Norrie then reads the drop shot and flicks it down the line - two break points for the Brit! He’s all over Djokovic.

DOUBLE BREAK FOR NORRIE! Long rally, Norrie stays in it and it’s Djokovic who blinks first. This is incredible from Norrie.

Djokovic *2-4 Norrie

15:43 , Matt Verri

Norrie couldn’t consolidate the break at the start of the set, can he do so now?

Not long now!

15:06 , Matt Verri

Centre Court starting to fill up again ahead of the semi-final. Seriously hot day at SW19!

Next up...

14:54 , Matt Verri

Krejcikova and Siniakova have beaten Kichenok and Ostapenko 6-2 6-2. They’re into the women’s doubles final.

Attention now turns to Djokovic vs Norrie - next on Centre Court!

Not long now!

14:50 , Matt Verri

Djokovic and Norrie look set to be on Centre Court very soon.

Krejcikova and Siniakova have a 5-2 lead in the second set and will serve for the match.

Men’s semi-final up at the conclusion of that, which could follow swiftly.

Room for improvement for Norrie...

14:45 , Matt Verri

Djokovic and Norrie have played each other just once before.

That was at the ATP World Tour Finals at the end of last year - Norrie managed just three games as he fell to a 6-2 6-1 defeat.

British fans will be desperate for a much-improved showing this time!

Murray: Norrie can shock Djokovic

14:38 , Matt Verri

Andy Murray has backed Cameron Norrie to shock Novak Djokovic on Centre Court tomorrow, writes Matt Majendie.

Djokovic has not lost at Wimbledon for five years and is the hot favourite to beat the British No1 and go on to win a seventh SW19 title.

But two-time champion Murray believes his fellow Brit can pull off a grass-court upset in the semi-final.

He told Standard Sport: “We’ve seen some stuff in tennis over the last few years that no one expected, like with Emma [Raducanu, winning the US Open].”

Schedule update...

14:30 , Matt Verri

Krejcikova and Siniakova have taken the first set on Centre Court against Kichenok and Ostapenko.

One more of those and Djokovic and Norrie will soon be starting their walk through the Wimbledon corridors.

The second seeds have made a good start to the second set too, with an early break. They’re serving to move 3-1 ahead and three games from victory.

Norrie and Centre Court vs Djokovic

14:24 , Matt Verri

Djokovic is fully aware that Centre Court will be right behind Norrie this afternoon.

The British number one needed every bit of crowd support to get past Goffin in the quarter-finals and he’ll be grateful for all the help he can get against Djokovic!

How Norrie got here...

14:17 , Matt Verri

Cam Norrie has needed a couple of epic encounters to continue his Wimbledon run.

The British number one beat Jaume Munar in five sets to reach the third round, where he beat Steve Johnson to make the last-16 of a Grand Slam for the first time.

He then eased past Tommy Paul, before finding a way past David Goffin in a five-set thrillier in the quarter-finals.

How Djokovic got here...

14:07 , Matt Verri

Novak Djokovic is into his 11th Wimbledon semi-final, but it hasn’t been entirely comfortable.

The top seed dropped a set in his opening match against Kwon Soon-woo and also needed four sets to get past Tim van Rijthoven in the round of 16.

In his quarter-final match against Jannik Sinner he lost the first two sets, but Djokovic roared back to get the job done and book his place in the last four.

Method to Kyrgios’ madness

13:58 , Matt Verri

When Nick Kyrgios took to the ­practice courts at Wimbledon ­yesterday, he thought it was his ­penultimate session before a semi-final against Rafael Nadal, writes Matt Majendie.

And yet he acted like there was not a care in the world. He switched his racket to his left hand and proceeded to do impressions of the Spaniard.

He had his grunt down to a tee as he returned the ball to one of his team on the other side of the net.

Moments earlier, his hitting partner had been knelt over on the grass with his backside in the air as Kyrgios took a pot shot at his posterior with a serve at full tilt, a forfeit for having lost a practice tiebreak to him.

Centre Court update...

13:51 , Matt Verri

Early break for Ostapenko and Kichenok on Centre Court - they lead 2-0 in the opening set of their doubles semi-final.

Reminder that Djokovic and Norrie will be on once that match is done.

Glorious day at Wimbledon!

13:43 , Matt Verri

Norrie fully aware of task ahead

13:37 , Matt Verri

Cameron Norrie has warned his growing fanbase that he faces one of the toughest tasks in tennis in toppling Novak Djokovic on Centre Court today, writes Matt Majendie.

Djokovic is a six-time Wimbledon champion and has not lost at the tournament since 2017 when he was carrying an elbow injury.

This is Norrie’s first Grand Slam appearance while, in contrast, Djokovic is playing in the last four of one of the majors for a 43rd time in his illustrious career.

And in his quest to reach the final of his home Grand Slam, Norrie told Standard Sport: “I think it’s one of the toughest tasks in tennis, especially with the way he’s playing right now.

“And particularly in the last round he came back from two sets to love down and you’ve got to take a lot of confidence from his point of view and I think it’s going to be a really tough one, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

Prediction

13:23 , Matt Verri

It’s been a brilliant run to the last four from Norrie but he now faces an assignment that is as difficult as they come - beating Djokovic at Wimbledon.

The British number one is a much better player than he showed when the two met at the end of last year, and will have a partisan Centre Court crowd behind him.

At times this tournament Djokovic has looked vulnerable for one set, even two against Jannik Sinner, but winning three against the top seed looks a step too far for Norrie.

Djokovic to win in four sets.

How to watch Djokovic vs Norrie

Good afternoon!

12:53 , Matt Verri

Hello and welcome to a big afternoon at Wimbledon!

It’s men’s semi-final day... though there’s just the one match. All the focus is on Novak Djokovic vs Cameron Norrie on Centre Court, as the British number one looks to book his place in the Wimbledon final. Just the small matter of the six-time SW19 champion stands in his way.
