between Court is set to host just one men’s semi-final later today after Rafael Nadal withdrew from Wimbledon.
Nick Kyrgios was given a forfeit for Sunday’s final as Nadal’s abdominal injury was too damaging for him to face the Australian.
This means fans will only have Novak Djokovic versus Cameron Norrie to enjoy this side of the competition – although it could become the final classic of the 2022 Championships.
The British No.1 has never reached the last four of a Grand Slam after beating David Goffin in a grueling five sets in the quarters. Likewise, Djokovic has been pushed all the way by Jannik Sinner as he looks to assert his advantage as the tournament favourite.
Two semi-finals of the women’s doubles will take place on the center court on either side of Djokovic against Norrie.
