The Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge hailed ‘brilliant’ British number one Cameron Norrie after cheering
his quarter-final victory at Wimbledon today.
Kate Middleton cut a polished
figure in a £1,515 Alessandra Rich frock as she watched two thrilling matches
alongside Prince William and Tim Henman – including Norrie’s five-set thriller
against Belgium’s David Goffin.
The royal couple tweeted a
picture of 26-year-old Norrie pumping his fist on the court, with the
caption: ‘What a match! Just brilliant @cam-norrie.’
They later added: ‘What a day
of tennis! Fantastic to be back @Wimbledon today and wonderful to see
@Cam-Norrie flying the flag in the singles!’
The ninth seed twice recovered
from a set down to claim a 3-6 7-5 2-6 6-3 7-5 victory on a raucous No 1 Court
and become only the fourth British man in the Open era to reach the last four
at the All England Club.
Norrie clinched victory on his
second match point, raising his arms aloft when Goffin netted a forehand after
three hours and 28 minutes.
