Belgian tennis player David Goffin has advanced to the Wimbledon quarter-finals, where he will face the British number 1 ranked player, Cameron Norrie.

The 39th-ranked Goffin defeated Frances Tiafoe in a mammoth 4-hour and 35-minute match to reach his second Wimbledon quarter-final.

After the game, he jokingly apologised to the players who had to follow him on the court, saying that "they probably had to warm up more than once."

His match against Cameron Norrie will be the Belgian number one's fourth Grand Slam quarter-final appearance, having reached the French Open quarter-final in 2016, the Australian Open quarter-final in 2017, and the Wimbledon quarter-final in 2019.

Cameron Norrie, his future opponent, advanced to his first Grand Slam quarter-final by defeating Tommy Paul.

The winner will face either Italian Jannik Sinner or 6-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic, with Goffin able to avenge his 2019 loss against the Serb.
