The British star Cameron Norrie has still kept the fan’s hope alive as if wins his fourth-round encounter quite comfortably. He faced #30 American Paul and won the match quite comfortably in straight sets.
Norrie now has the entire expectations of the home crowd as the majority of the British players are out of the tournament. J. Sinner Vs Alcaraz was a mouthwatering clash.

However, Sinner got the upper hand and defeated Alcaraz in four sets. This was a big upset for many fans but the way Sinner is playing in the tournament, it cannot be called a fluke.
