Federer sees off Norrie o reach the last 16 at Wimbledon

Roger Federer is pushed hard by Cameron Norrie over four sets but Swiss ace holds firm to extinguish British hopes in the men’s draw and book his place in last 16 at Wimbledon

  • The British No 2 was playing in the last 32 for the third consecutive slam 
  • Norrie had lost to Rafael Nadal at both the Australian and French Opens 
  • And Roger Federer ended his grand slam hopes at Wimbledon on Saturday

Cameron Norrie found his path at a grand slam blocked by a tennis giant once again as he fell in the third round of Wimbledon to Roger Federer.

The British No 2 was playing in the last 32 for the third consecutive slam but, after losing to Rafael Nadal at both the Australian and French Opens, this time it was Federer who defeated him 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4.

Federer looked to be cruising through to the fourth round at two sets ahead only for Norrie to break to love to clinch the third.

The Swiss ace had struggled in the earlier rounds but he stepped it up to go two sets up

That was as good as it got, though, with the sixth seed wrapping up victory in two hours and 34 minutes.

Norrie follows Andy Murray and Dan Evans out of the tournament so, having had three men through to the third round of the singles at Wimbledon for the first time since 1999, British interest is now at an end.
