Novak Djokovic attempts to extend his winning streak at The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London to 27 matches when he takes on No, 9 seed Cameron Norrie in the 2022 Wimbledon men's semifinals on Friday at 9:45 a.m. ET. The top-seeded Djokovic has not lost in the Grand Slam tournament since retiring in the second set of his quarterfinal match against Tomas Berdych in 2017, winning three straight titles along the way.

The winner of this match will face Nick Kyrgios in the finals after Rafael Nadal (abdomen) withdrew from the other semifinal.

Djokovic vs. Norrie preview
The 35-year-old Djokovic's winning streak at Wimbledon was in grave danger as he lost the first two sets against Sinner, who is 15 years his junior. But the Serb displayed the stuff of which legends are made and won the final three sets handily to advance to the semifinals of the tournament for the 11th time in his career. With two more match wins, Djokovic will pull even with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw for the second-most Wimbledon men's titles in history (seven) and break a tie with Roger Federer for second-most Grand Slam crowns (21).
His first step toward those accomplishments is getting past Norrie, a 26-year-old Brit who will have the crowd in his corner. Djokovic had no trouble against Norrie in their only previous meeting as he cruised to a 6-2, 6-1 triumph during round-robin play at the 2021 ATP Finals in Turin, Italy. Norrie, who never had gotten past the third round in a Grand Slam event prior to this one, has displayed some comeback ability of his own in this tournament as he rallied from 2-1 set deficits to defeat Jaume Munar in the second round and Goffin in the quarterfinals.
