Norrie or Draper set to reach Queen’s semi-final place

Britain will have a singles semi-finalist at the LTA’s cinch Championships after Cameron Norrie and Jack Draper both scored impressive wins at The Queen’s Club on Wednesday.

Cam’s a great player and a great person, so I’ll be glad to share the court with him in the quarters Jack Draper

Norrie overcame talented fifth seed Aslan Karatsev and 19-year-old Draper scored a shock win over World No.39 Alexander Bublik, winning his fourth successive tie-break set of the week.

“I’m just glad we’re going to have one Brit in the semis,” said Draper, who is ranked World No.309. “Cam’s a great player and a great person, so I’ll be glad to share the court with him in the quarters.”

Draper is part of the LTA’s Pro Scholarship Programme, the highest level of support given to British players aged 16-24 who have the highest potential to reach the world’s Top 100.

With Norrie and Draper meeting in the quarterfinals, it means that a British player, other than Andy Murray, will reach the final four for the first time in a decade. In 2011, James Ward reached the semi-finals, losing out to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Britain has the chance to make it four quarterfinalists on Thursday, with World No. 25 Dan Evans taking on Adrian Mannarino, and record five-time champion Andy Murray up against top seed Matteo Berrettini of Italy.
