Wimbledon 2022 LIVE: Novak Djokovic and Cameron Norrie in quarter-final action


Wimbledon: Nadal reaches quarter-finals as Kyrgios battles to win in five sets

Follow all the action as the singles quarter-finals begin on Day 9 at Wimbledon. Defending champion Novak Djokovic ended Tim van Rijthoven’s fairy tale run in the fourth round as the Serb seeks to win the men’s title for the fourth consecutive time. He will now open the action on center court this afternoon against Italy’s No.10 seed Jannik Sinner, who beat Spain star Carlos Alcaraz in the previous round. The second men’s quarter-final this afternoon will pit Cameron Norrie against world number 58 David Goffin. Norrie is the last Briton to qualify in either singles draw and is trying to reach the first Grand Slam semi-final of his career.

The first women’s quarter-final sees No. 2 seed Ons Jabeur take on Marie Bouzkova. Jabeur is the heavy favorite, having yet to drop a set so far. Bouzkova, ranked No. 66 in the world, is a somewhat surprising name in the latter stages of the draw but produced an emphatic upset against Caroline Garcia in the fourth round. It’s much less shocking than the second women’s quarter-final being played today, which is an all-German clash between Tatjana Maria and Jule Niemeier. Maria’s best showing at Wimbledon was in 2015 when she reached the third round while 22-year-old Niemeier, who ended Heather Watson’s run, made her main draw debut.

Cristian Garin believes his Wimbledon quarter-final opponent Nick Kyrgios is ‘good for tennis’ despite the controversy surrounding the Aussie at SW19.

The world number 40 was handed a US$10,000 (£8,260) punishment after he admitted spitting in the direction of a spectator who heckled him in the first round tie against Paul Jubb, and a £4 fine $3,000 (£3,300) for swearing in Saturday’s heated clash with Stefanos Tsitsipas.

A third punishment could be on the horizon as Kyrgios, who regularly faced the linesmen at this grand slam, broke the strict dress code at Wimbledon when he wore red Air Jordan sneakers and a red cap for an on-field interview after his most recent victory.

But Garin, who needed four hours and 34 minutes to stun Alex De Minaur in his fourth-round match, insisted: “I think Nick is a very good player. For me maybe the best service on tour.

“Yeah, I’m in the quarterfinals, you know you’re going to face the best players in the world. He is for me one of the guys I like to watch. He is very good at tennis.

“I think Nick should be seeded because he is for me one of the best players on the circuit and on grass obviously. I mean, the opportunities you have to create. If we are in this round, we have both beaten good players.

“I don’t see it as an opportunity. I just want to enjoy, play my best and beat every point like I always do.

Wimbledon star Nick Kyrgios accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend

Nick Kyrgios has been charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend in an incident that allegedly happened late last year, according to reports in Australia.

Kyrgios, who will take part in the Wimbledon quarter-finals tomorrow, is accused of attacking model Chiara Passari and is due in court next month.

“ACT Policing can confirm that a 27-year-old man from Watson is due to appear in ACT Magistrates Court on August 2 on a charge of common assault following an incident that occurred in December 2021,” said police said Tuesday.

Attorney Jason Moffett, who represents Kyrgios, confirmed Canberra time that his client was aware of the accusation.

“It’s in the context of a domestic relationship,” he said. “The nature of the allegation is serious and Mr. Kyrgios takes the allegation very seriously.

Activists wearing “Where is Peng Shuai?” t-shirts at Wimbledon said they were confronted by “suspicious” security guards.

The group of men said they arrived at the Championships on Monday morning via the queue, but did not put on their t-shirts until they were inside the field.

They said they came to Wimbledon to “raise a little awareness” after the conversation around the Chinese tennis player had “calmed down”.

The former Wimbledon doubles champion disappeared from public view last year after accusing a senior Chinese official of sexual assault in November 2021.

She later appeared on state media, but observers said the appearances appeared to have been staged in response to foreign pressure.

Will Hoyles, 39, one of the campaigners who works for the Free Tibet campaign, said they were quickly confronted by “suspicious” security guards as they walked around the Wimbledon grounds on Monday.

Speaking to the PA news agency, he said: “We came to try to raise awareness a bit but Wimbledon managed to make it worse by harassing us.”

Mr Hoyles added: “They were asking loads of questions about what we were going to do, why we were here, you know, what we had already done etc.

“And we told them we had just been for a walk and talked to a few people and that’s when they seemed to get quite suspicious.”

He added that staff told them they “shouldn’t approach anyone to talk to them”.

“They said many times that the club doesn’t like to be political,” he said. “We told them that we don’t believe the message is political because we’re just asking where is a tennis player, where is a Wimbledon champion.

“We think it’s a pretty easy thing to ask and I think given the support we’ve had from people on the ground, I think a lot of people are asking the same question, so I don’t think let it be a political message.”

Cameron Norrie, the last Briton standing at Wimbledon, has urged home fans to support him when he plays his first Grand Slam quarter-final, against Belgium’s David Goffin, on Court One on Tuesday.

Britain’s hopes were dimmed when Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray were knocked out in the second round while Heather Watson and Katie Boulter gave home fans a glimmer of hope before they too were ousted last week.

“Unfortunately, yes, I am the last one standing. But I think that’s even more of a reason for everyone to support me,” said ninth seed Norrie.

Ranked 12th in the world, Norrie, 26, said he felt comfortable taking over from three-time winner Murray so he can lead the way into the next generation of British tennis.

“If I can help any of the youngsters, there’s a great group of guys coming in with a lot of talent, a lot of chances to make the top 100,” Norrie said.

“If I can be that guy to lead them and show they can do it… I went to college, I can show them a good path, if you can stay professional and make good decisions.

“I managed to make the quarters of a Slam by doing that, I was really happy with myself.”

Novak Djokovic said the late start times at the All England Club’s two main show grounds effectively turned Wimbledon into an indoor tournament for players who were scheduled to play the day’s final matches in those arenas.

The defending champion beat wildcard Tim van Rijthoven in four sets under the lights of center court on Sunday, setting up a quarter-final against youngster Jannik Sinner in a match that ended around 10:40 p.m. local time (21:40 GMT).

“I don’t see why there wouldn’t be an earlier tee time,” Djokovic told reporters, referring to local tee times of 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. on No. 1 Court and Center Court respectively. Action on the remaining courts begins at 11am.

“If you are scheduled last on the Center, you will finish a game under the roof, which changes the conditions, the style of play, the way you move on the court. It’s more slippery. The lights.

“It’s definitely an indoor tournament in most cases when you’re scheduled last on Center or Court One.”

Third-seeded Ons Jabeur is also in action on the women’s side of the draw.

Here’s a look at today’s action:

Nick Kyrgios joined the pair in the closing stages of the year’s third major but needed a decider against Brandon Nakashima to match his best run at a grand slam.

Cameron Norrie: How Britain’s home hope ‘squeezed the lemon’ on route to Wimbledon quarter-finals

“It’s quite interesting,” replied Cameron Norrie, when the British No. 1 and Wimbledon prospect was asked how British he really felt. A tennis player born in South Africa to a Welsh mother and Scottish father, raised in New Zealand and whose university education took him to the United States now carries the weight of a nation at the All England Club. As the question implied, however, which one? “My background obviously comes from a variety of places,” Norrie continued. “But I live here, based here…”

It means there will be a British quarter-finalist at Wimbledon, with Norrie becoming just the fifth man in the Open Era to reach the last eight of the Championships, but he will not play on center court. Instead, Norrie will face Belgium’s David Goffin on Court No 1, scheduled to be second after Novak Djokovic’s match with Jannik Sinner, and so the lowly 26-year-old continues to fly in the spotlight as his unprecedented rise to the highest level of the sport has yet to grasp.

That may be starting to change.
