Britain’s Cameron Norrie is confident to beat Serbian great Novak Djokovic in the semifinal clash at Wimbledon.

Norrie setup the last-four match with the defending champion Djokovic after defeating Belgian David Goffin in a five-set marathon quarter-final match 3-6, 7-5, 2-6, 6-3, 7-5 on Tuesday (July 5).

When asked whether he can get the better of Djokovic, Norrie said: “For sure.

“I think it is obviously one of the toughest tasks in tennis. I had say grass is his (Djokovic’s) favorite surface and his record is unbelievable here at Wimbledon. It is going to be tough.

“I am going to have to improve a lot of things from today. I don’t think I am going to have the chance to lose focus like I did today. I think I was a little bit fortunate. A couple of times, lost a little bit of focus and managed to get it back.

“I think with him, there is no room for that. Now looking forward to taking it to him and seeing the level he brings. I didn’t really watch too much from him today, but he’s obviously feeling pretty good after coming back from two sets to love. Yeah, it’s going to be a tricky one.”

Djokovic made an impressive comeback in his quarter-final match against Jannik Sinner 5-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. The Serb was trailing by two sets against the Italian, who needed just one more set to cause the biggest upset in the 2022 tournament. However, Sinner lost his momentum and Djokovic stormed into the semifinals.
