Novak Djokovic ended Cameron Norrie’s dream run on Friday to stay on course for his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title and become the fourth man in the Open Era to record a streak of four straight wins there after Roger Federer, Pete Sampras and Bjorn Borg, Sky Sports reported.

Djokovic made it through to his eighth Wimbledon final after ending the hopes of Britain’s Cameron Norrie.

Defending champion Djokovic ended the Wimbledon dreams of Norrie – a former Macleans College student – to reach Sunday’s final where he won a seventh title when he beat Australain Nick Kyrgios.

Norrie, whose parents live in Bucklands Beach, was bidding to join Andy Murray as the second British man in the Open Era to reach the Wimbledon final. He made the perfect start by steamrolling Djokovic to win the first set. But Djokovic showed why he has not lost a match on Centre Court in nine years by hitting back to win 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-4 for his fourth consecutive title at the All England Club.
