In the Wimbledon men's singles semi-finals, Britain's Norrie was unable to take advantage of a confident start as Serbia's Djokovic fought back.

Only four Britons have ever reached the final at the All England Club in the Open era.

He was defeated by the top seed in the first set.

The winner of Sunday's final will face off against Australia's Nick Kyrgios the following day.

  • Reaction to Norrie's defeat by Djokovic in Wimbledon semi-finals

If he wins a 21st Grand Slam men's title, he will move into second place on the all-time list.

Nadal pulled out of the second semi-final on Thursday because of an abdominal injury, but was supposed to face the Australian in the final.

After ending the hopes of Norrie and a nation, Novak has the chance to close the gap again.

The first British player since Johanna Konta to reach a Wimbledon singles semi-finals was given partisan support by Centre Court.

As Norrie broke three times to take the opening set, the atmosphere became celebratory, but soon came to a halt and the crowd became quiet.

Norrie was given a rapturous round of applause as he left the Centre Court.

He was playing the tournament of his life and he didn't have much to lose.

I have a lot of respect for him.

I was fortunate to break his serve in the second set.

I think he gifted me a game.

Norrie's strong start has British fans believing

Norrie will look back on these two weeks with a lot of pride despite the fact that he couldn't maintain his fast start.

The left-handed player went from strength to strength to reach the last four at a Grand Slam for the first time.

The confidence he has gained over the past couple of seasons, from rapidly rising up the rankings and winning titles with increasing prestige, was clear in the first set from the Englishman.

After earning two break points in the first game of the match, Norrie took the first by dragging the Serb around the court and hitting a winner.

Norrie spun around in joy to show the magnitude of the event.

After a nervy service game meant he couldn't consolidate the break, Norrie soon led again and that was aided by his own edginess.

Two more uncharacteristic errors from Djokovic, smacking two forehands from the baseline long, enabled Norrie to break again and take a 3-2 lead.

Norrie held serve to consolidate the break, which was caused by a forehand into the net from the Serbian.

After two double faults and a set point, he hammered down an ace to seal the opener.

The home fans were optimistic and that created a happy atmosphere.

There was a feeling among the realists that he couldn't continue to play that badly and give opportunities to his opponent.

That was correct as the defending champion improved his level and put himself into an eighth Wimbledon men's final.

It is his 32nd Grand Slam final, moving him one clear of the all-time men's record of 31, held byFederer.

There's more to come.
