Wimbledon 2022: Cam Norrie vs David Goffin quarter-final preview

• 3 MINUTE READ

Cam Norrie is set to battle it out with Belgium’s David Goffin for a place in the semi-finals at Wimbledon on Tuesday 5 July.

Having become only the fifth Brit in the Open Era to reach the final eight at The Championships, Norrie is aiming to keep his Wimbledon dreams alive and create his own history when he walks out onto court.

Ahead of the match, here's everything you need to know about the players and how to watch.

Meet the players

Cam Norrie (GBR), (world No.12, seeded 9)

Norrie is set to compete in his first Grand Slam quarter-final, having reached the third round at all four majors prior to this week. The British No.1 has enjoyed an incredible rise in the rankings since the start of last season having gone from world No.74 to a career high at world No.10 earlier this year. He’s the fourth British male to reach the top 10 in the Open Era (Greg Rusedski, Tim Henman and Andy Murray).

Norrie caught the attention of the tennis world back in Autumn last year when he became the first ever Brit to win a men’s singles title at the prestigious Indian Wells event. It was a win that saw him ascend to the British No.1 one spot he has held on to ever since.

This year has seen Norrie lift his third career title at Delray Beach, followed by his fourth in Lyon as he showed he can be a force on clay as well. A runner-up at the cinch Championships in 2021, the Pro-Scholarship Programme graduate is a dominant force on the grass and has continued to improve round by round at this year’s Championships.

David Goffin (BEL), (world No.58)

A former world No.7 himself, Goffin is one of the most experienced players left in this year’s Wimbledon draw. The 31-year-old is a six-time ATP champion, with his most recent triumph coming earlier this year in Marrakech, where he took home the title after beating Alex Molcan in three sets.

Goffin has enjoyed strong performances at each of the Slams in the past, having reached the quarter-finals on all surfaces. This is the second time he’s made the final eight at Wimbledon – his only previous quarter-final visit coming in 2019 where he lost to eventual champion Novak Djokovic in straight sets.

In addition to his title in Marrakech, Goffin recovered from a slow start to the season to reach the third round in Roland Garros, Monte-Carlo and Mardid.
