The 35-year-old has only lost once in a Wimbledon final and has only failed to claim the title on two occasions since the 2013 defeat to Andy Murray.

Djokovic endured a difficult start in his quarter-final tie with Jannick Sinner, but staged an impressive comeback in a 5-6 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-2 win.

He has also beaten Tim van Rijthoven, Miomir Kecmanovic, Thanasi Kokkinakis and Kwon Soon-woo on his way to the semis - losing only two sets in the process.

He survived a scare in the second round against another Spanish player when Jaume Munar took him the distance and lead 2-1 after three sets but Norrie rallied back to win the match 5-3.

His third round match was another straight sets victory as he beat the USA’s Steve Johnson 6-4, 6-1 and 6-0 in dominant fashion.

He faced another American in the Round of 16 but once again was able to win in straight sets as he beat Tommy Paul 6-4, 7-5 and 6-4.

His quarter-final test against Goffin looked like it could go either way on a nervy Court 1, however wins in the final two sets secured a place in the final four for Norrie.
