Wimbledon 2022 LIVE: Scores and results as Cameron Norrie beats Tommy Paul and Carlos Alcaraz faces Jannik Sinner before Novak Djokovic

Digitally cleared daily wrap from 2022 Wimbledon Championships

Novak Djokovic looks to continue his march towards the Wimbledon final as the Serbian eyes a seventh crown at SW19 and a fourth successive title when he faces Tim Van Rijthoven for a place in the last eight.

It follows the drama of Nick Kyrgios defeating fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in four gripping sets with the Australian predictably suffering a mid-match meltdown in a heated contest, while Djokovic may have been more interested in the form of Rafael Nadal, who was back to his best in a straight sets win over Lorenzo Sonego.

There were mixed results for the British players. Cameron Norrie is through to the quarter-finals of a grand slam for the first time after beating Tommy Paul 6-4 7-5 6-4. He is the last Briton standing after Heather Watson was defeated in straight sets by Jule Niemeier on Centre Court.

There is also a tasty match on Centre Court among the future of the men’s game with Italian Jannik Sinner, 20, battling Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz, 19, and both men keen to book a first-ever quarter-final at Wimbledon.

Wimbledon 2022: Cameron Norrie 6-4 7-5 6-4 Tommy Paul – Game, set and match!

I had a few doubts about Cameron Norrie coming into this tournament but it’s great to see him getting better and better by the round. He is taking full advantage of an open side of the draw and you would back him to beat Goffin in front of his home crowd.

Cameron Norrie becomes the fifth British man to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals, and first in five years, following Roger Taylor, Greg Rusedski, Tim Henman, Andy Murray.

He will face David Goffin for a semi-final spot! What an opportunity. Goffin defeated Frances Tiafoe in a five set epic earlier.

Wimbledon 2022: *Cameron Norrie 6-4 7-5 6-4 Tommy Paul – Game, set and match!

First serve. Smash. Great start!

But what a response from Paul! Norrie had him with the forehand down the line but he dug out the return and fired it into Norrie’s feet.

Paul fires long after Norrie stays patient in the rally at the baseline. Two points away.

Ace from Norrie down the middle! Match point!

Paul saves the first – but then a wild forehand from the American seals the win! Norrie is through to the quarter-finals!

Wimbledon 2022: *Cameron Norrie 6-4 7-5 6-4 Tommy Paul

Paul asks the question after winning one of the points of the match with the backhand pass at the net. Those rallies only happen because of Norrie’s work rate though. He gets to so many balls that he has no right to and because of that the crowd have been getting right behind him over the fortnight.

Now he will serve for the quarter-finals!

Wimbledon 2022: Cameron Norrie 6-4 7-5 5-3 Tommy Paul

Norrie is making this look so easy. The ninth seed has never experienced a fourth round match at a grand slam before but is coasting home. Paul looks down at the grass after Norrie takes a hold by catching the baseline. One game closer.

Wimbledon 2022: *Cameron Norrie 6-4 7-5 4-3 Tommy Paul

Still no sign of nerves in the game of Cameron Norrie and he pushes towards the last eight. Paul puts an ace down the middle before turning to his box and pumping his fist, but he needs a break.

It remains on serve in the third between Alcaraz and Sinner but the Italian has just played a stunning turnaround backhand winner and his level remains high.

David Goffin wins the battle of Court 2! The Belgian has defeated Frances Tiafoe in the longest match of the tournament so far, 7-6(3), 5-7, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5 in four hours and 36 minutes! Extraordinary contest, and it looks like Goffin will be playing Norrie for a place in the semi-finals!

Wimbledon 2022: *Cameron Norrie 6-4 7-5 2-1 Tommy Paul – Norrie breaks!

And there it is! Cameron Norrie takes another huge step towards the quarter-finals as Tommy Paul throws a forehand long. His challenge is in vain and the American looks fed up as he heads for his seat.

Wimbledon 2022: Jannik Sinner 6-1 6-4 0-1 Carlos Alcaraz

That’s a huge hold from Alcaraz after being 0-40 down.

Norrie, meanwhile, presses for the early break on the Paul serve after whipping a forehand winner down the line.

Wimbledon 2022: Jannik Sinner 6-1 6-4 Carlos Alcaraz – Sinner wins second set!

And just like that, Carlos Alcaraz is two sets down and facing an early exit from Wimbledon. Super stuff from Jannik Sinner, who took the early break in the second and then served it out to love impressively. The return game from Sinner has been excellent and he has the edge on Alcaraz at the net. The Spaniard loves a five-set comeback but faces a huge fight from here.
