Cameron Norrie, Britain’s top player, saw his journey at Queen’s culminate in a disheartening 6-4, 7-6 (7-1) quarter-final loss to American player, Sebastian Korda.

Ranked 13th globally, Norrie, who was the finalist at Queen’s in 2021, struggled with numerous errors in a somewhat subdued first-set performance.

Despite enhancing his game in the second set, Norrie, 27, had a few misfires and a double fault leading to a lopsided tie-break.

World’s number 32, Korda, is set to face either top seed Carlos Alcaraz or Grigor Dimitrov in the semi-finals on Saturday.

Norrie, last year’s Wimbledon semi-finalist, was broken in the fifth game, although he had three break opportunities in the subsequent game.

Regrettably, he failed to capitalize as Korda’s powerful serve extricated him from the precarious position.

Norrie managed to hold his next service game with consecutive aces but was unable to break Korda’s serve and consequently lost the initial set.

While trailing at the start of the second set, Norrie rebounded to 3-3, marking the first time he was able to threaten Korda’s serve.

However, Korda, son of Petr, the former Australian Open champion, and brother of Nelly, a major golf champion, dominated the tie-break, propelling him into the semi-finals on his Queen’s debut.

A delighted 22-year-old Korda said, “It’s massive. My performance on grass is impressive, I’m feeling at ease and genuinely relishing my time here.

With each match I play, my happiness multiplies. Everything is falling into place right now.”

Meanwhile, Neal Skupski from Britain, alongside Dutch partner Wesley Koolhof, succumbed 6-3 7-6 (7-4) in the men’s doubles semi-finals to American Taylor Fritz and Jiri Lehecka from the Czech Republic.

‘Spurred to Defeat Him’

Second seed Holger Rune of Denmark will face off against Alex de Minaur in the other singles semi-final following his triumph over Lorenzo Musetti, 6-4 7-5, in a heated match where the Italian shot an overhead directly at him.

Rune responded, “He’s free to do what he wants. Certainly, it’s not the most sportsmanlike conduct, but it is within the rules. He can aim the ball wherever he pleases.

That incident sparked my determination to defeat him even more. I’m thrilled to have emerged victorious in two sets. It’s a great feeling. I’m in the semi-finals, he isn’t. So, I’m content.”

Australian De Minaur, who bested Andy Murray in his opening match, prevailed over France’s Adrian Mannarino 6-4, 4-6, 6-4.
