Norrie becomes 1st British man to reach Wimbledon quarters since 2017
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Cam Norrie became the first British man in five years to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals, beating Tommy Paul in straight sets on No. 1 Court.
The ninth-seeded Norrie was only broken once as he won 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.
He is the first British male quarterfinalist since Andy Murray in 2017 and will face David Goffin of Belgium. Norrie reached a career-high ranking of No. 10 this year, but this is the first time he's been past the third round of a Grand Slam tournament.
The 30th-seeded Paul was playing at Wimbledon for the first time and was trying to reach his second Grand Slam quarterfinal.
