- Briton comes from behind to beat Belgian 3-6, 7-5, 2-6, 6-3, 7-5
- Norrie faces champion and No 1 seed for place in final
In the first grand slam quarter-final of Cameron Norrie’s blossoming career he had every reason to feel incensed by how things seemed to be progressing. Faced with the opportunity of a lifetime, his nerves early on were plain for all to see. He constantly dropped the ball short. His forehand leaked too many errors. All the while, David Goffin, his far more experienced opponent, picked him apart.
But even as this most important match was falling out of his control and from his grasp Norrie carried himself as he always does. He remained composed as games fell away from him, furiously searching for a solution to his troubles. After successful points he kept his chest high and his fist pumped, offering himself constant encouragement.
