    Norrie said: "Even before the match today, he came over and he was in the gym and came and said, ‘good luck’.

    “I think (he’s) not a bad guy to ask about some tactics. I’m going to enjoy today and maybe reach out to him and see what he’s got.”

    Good morning tennis fans

    Now Cameron Norrie really is a true British tennis hero – because he’s put the nation through the wringer in traditionally agonising fashion.

    Like Andy Murray or Tim Henman in their pomp, Norrie won a nerve-shredding, topsy-turvy Wimbledon marathon against David Goffin to reach his first Grand Slam semi-final, against Novak Djokovic on Friday.

    The match lasted three-and-a-half hours, five sets, and contained two senior Cabinet resignations in the middle of it, as Norrie twice clawed his way back from a set-down to clinch the most significant win of his life, with a 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 7-5 scoreline.

    Norrie, 26, said: “I’m so happy to get through. It wasn’t going my way, I wasn’t feeling good, David was playing really good but thanks to the crowd, I managed to stay as patient as I could. It was all just adrenaline.

    “Winning a match like this gives me flashbacks to all the hard work and all the sacrifices I’ve had to make – it has definitely paid off.

    “It only gets tougher now – I’m going to enjoy the semi-final.”

    We're on Cloud SW1-9

    Oh what a memorable day here at the All England Club as Cameron Norrie became just the FOURTH British man to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals in the Open Era. 

    Norrie joins Roger Taylor, Tim Henman and Andy Murray after his sensational comeback victory over David Goffin over five gruelling sets. 

    And he will face six-time champion and world No3 Novak Djokovic in the semis. 

    The Serb was also involved in a five-set thriller, fighting from two down to overcome Jannik Sinner. 

    On the women's side, Ons Jabeur and Tatjana Maria both battled from a set down to reach the last four – both of their first major appearances in semi-finals. 

    That's all the play from here on site for today.

    But tomorrow promises to be just as epic. 

    We have Amanda Anisimova vs Simona Halep and Ajla Tomljanovic vs Elena Rybakina in the women's quarters.

    Meanwhile, two-time winner Rafael Nadal is second on Centre against Taylor Fritz and it will be Nick Kyrgios – the man never far from the headlines – against Chilean Cristian Garin.

    More from Norrie

    He told BBC TV: "I'm honestly speechless.

    "I can't even talk. I'm so happy to get through with such a great team, such a great family and friends here."

    Finally got his words out

    Norrie, 26, said: “I’m so happy to get through. It wasn’t going my way, I wasn’t feeling good, David was playing really good but thanks to the crowd, I managed to stay as patient as I could. It was all just adrenaline.

    “Winning a match like this gives me flashbacks to all the hard work and all the sacrifices I’ve had to make – it has definitely paid off.

    Jabeur into the semis

    What a comeback from Ons Jabuer.

    She comes back from losing the first set 6-3 by taking the next two 6-1 6-1 against Bouzkova.

    She is the first Arab woman to reach a Grand Slam semi-final.

    What. A . Legend.

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie on the brink of tears

    He is trying to do an on-court interview.

    But Norrie really is lost for words.

    He can barely get his words out and takes a breath to regather his composure.

    As an aside, I'm no lip-reading expert but I'm pretty sure the future King of England may well have dropped a cheeky f-bomb after Norrie lost his first match point!

    Who can blame him?!

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 7-5 Goffin

    GAME, SET AND MATCH, CAMERON NORRIE!

    The Brit has done it.

    He is through to the semi-finals of Wimbledon where he will face Novak Djokovic.

    Norrie held his nerve in a nervey game, losing his first match point.

    But it was all over on the second match point when Goffin netted.

    His parents and the crowd roar his name. Wow.

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie* 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 6-5 Goffin

    NORRIE BREAKS AND WILL SERVE FOR THE MATCH!

    A long, bruising rally to start off the game – and it goes Cam's way as Goffin pushes wide.

    Oh, brilliant! Goffin brings Norrie in, he drop shots him back then shows sensational reactions at the net to ping a volley back towards his opponent who cannot produce the same.

    Goffin backhand long…

    0-40.

    Three. Break. Points…

    Goffin forehand long!

    Norrie is a game away!

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 5-5 Goffin*

    Norrie forces Goffin into a couple of errors.

    The Brit then pings down an ace down the T – Goffin challenges but the ball just caught a very slither of the line.

    Goffin goes long and Norrie holds.

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie* 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 4-5 Goffin

    A bit of an anticlimactic game, that one.

    A noticeably-flat atmosphere as Goffin races through it to love.

    Norrie will serve to stay in Wimbledon 2022…

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 4-4 Goffin*

    A simple smash put away sets Norrie on his way.

    A return wide makes it 40-0 before Norrie puts a backhand long.

    He does exactly the same, pushing that backhand beyond the baseline, again but does really well with a few overheads and a simple volley to hold.

    A crunch hold.

    Now, how are the nerves, David?

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie* 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 3-4 Goffin

    Wide from Goffin.

    Wide from Norrie.

    The tension is building with every point.

    Goffin pings a backhand up the line and goes for broke… it looks tight as Norrie chases across but cannot make it.

    It is called out, Goffin challenges… it was in! 30-15..

    Ace. 40-15.

    What a point – a bit of everything, attacking and defending from both players before eventually Norrie's stretched volley exposes himself and Goffin punishes.

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 3-3 Goffin*

    Perfect ace down the middle.

    Goffin goes wide.

    Goffin has one called wide – but there is an immediate correction that it was good… replay the point… this backhand is definitely wide from Goffin.

    Wide serve but the return is out.

    Love hold.

    Brilliant from Cameron Norrie.

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie* 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 2-3 Goffin

    This crowd is getting into this more and more – I think there was even a shout of "out" mid-rally at 15-15…

    Both men carried on, though, until Goffin clipped one off the top of the net and wide.

    Two returns miss in a row.

    Then a smash is put away emphatically – a big "come on" from Goffin.

    He needs to keep himself pumped…

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 2-2 Goffin*

    Anything you can do…

    Norrie holds with ease.

    On we go…

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie* 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 1-2 Goffin

    15-0.

    30-0.

    40-0.

    Game.

    Solid stuff from Goffin.

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 1-1 Goffin*

    Oooh.

    At 30-30, Norrie serves at just 82mph and that gets the treatment it deserves – a 94mph winner from Goffin.

    Break point… second serve… Goffin on top, pushing Norrie around the court as the Brit scampers to defend… and then the Belgian nets!

    A huge backhand winner sets him on his way.

    Another crunch hold.

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie* 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 0-1 Goffin

    Norrie gets off to a perfect start as Goffin goes long and then wide for 15-30.

    But the Belgian battles back and gets himself in front at 40-30…

    Norrie looks to have the ascendancy in the point but nets a drop shot forehand. Doh!

  • Joshua Jones

    Norrie 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 Goffin*

    Norrie races to 40-0…

    Three set points…

    Double fault.

    Net.

    40-30…

    But a booming T serve at 118mph catches the frame of Goffin's racket and lands right next to the Belgian.

    We are going the distance again!

  • Joshua Jones

    Jabeur in trouble

    Remaining favourite Ons Jabeur has dropped the first set against unseeded Czech player Marie Bouzkova on Centre.

    But the Tunisian is a break up immediately in the second.
