In a little over an hour and a half, the number one player at Great Britain won in Centre Court in three straight sets, 6-4, 6-1, and 6-0.
In the following round, Norrie will play against Tommy Paul, who is also from the United States. This will be the first time in the last five years that a British player has advanced to the fourth round of the men’s singles draw.
Additionally, it was the first time in Norrie’s 26-year career that she advanced to the round of 16 in any of the four Grand Slams.
The left-handed tennis player, who was born in South Africa, displayed his finest tennis on the main show court at the All England Club, and he was ecstatic with his remarkable win against Johnson.
He expressed his satisfaction by saying, “I couldn’t be happier, particularly with all of my friends and family watching.” Today’s game was fun to play, and I think overall it was a bit less stressful for my team.
The members of my team and I are all working for the same objectives, and the whole process has been a lot of fun. I want to keep moving forward and checking off more items on the list.
He said, “I’m as prepared as I possibly can be, and I’m working out as hard as I possibly can.” I’m moving better, and I’m feeling a lot better out on the court. As I’ve said before, I’m as ready as I can possibly be.”
Norrie won the first set with a score of 6-4 after completing the match with a spectacular break of service to finish things off. Norrie began the match as the superior player and earned himself two break chances.
During the second set, the Briton was successful with 80 percent of his first serves and committed just four unforced mistakes. He also took advantage of Johnson’s level slipping when he had the opportunity to advance to the fourth round.
