Court One loves this Norrie performance! Exceptional movement from the Briton to win the point of the match, as he reached a bunt from Paul and won a spectacular rally as he found the baseline with the lob.

Wimbledon 2022: Jannik Sinner 6-1 Carlos Alcaraz

Quite a score on center court as Jannik Sinner storms into the first set against Carlos Alcaraz, in the battle of the two young stars vying for the quarter-finals. Sinner is certainly capable of upsetting, but I don’t think anyone expected the Italian to go through to a 6-1 opening set.

Alcaraz sends the sublime winner down the line, but it’s followed by a long forehand and Sinner finishes it off with a massive ace wide.

Watson denied Wimbledon quarter-final by Niemeier

Heather Watson couldn’t keep the party going on center court after her unexpected Wimbledon run was halted before the quarter-finals by Germany’s Jule Niemeier. There would be no heartbreaking ending to this occasion and although Watson will regret the missed opportunity of an open tournament draw, 23-year-old Niemeier proved to be on a different level and well deserved his place. in the last eight.

Watson overcame the trauma of a previous losing streak at Wimbledon by reaching the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time in 43 attempts, but Niemeier had no such history to speak of and swung freely as She seized the opportunity on what is her Wimbledon debut. Niemeier, the world number 97, stunned second seed Annet Kontaveit early in the tournament and will face another German, Tatjana Maria, for a place in the semi-finals.

Wimbledon 2022: Watson 2-6 4-6 Niemeier – Game, set and match!

Niemeier attacks Watson’s backhand with that powerful forehand, and the British net on the third match point.

His run at Wimbledon is cut short in the fourth round, but what a journey it has been. A huge victory for Niemeier, however, who is in the quarter-finals for what is only his second Grand Slam appearance.

“I just want to say sorry,” she said. “I was nervous but as soon as I stepped onto the pitch I felt confident.”
