With the semifinal win at the All England Club, Djokovic has won 27 consecutive matches at the club and is pursuing a fourth consecutive title.

In the semifinals, Djokovic defeated No. 9 seed Cam Norrie of Great Britain 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 to extend his All England Club winning streak to 27 matches.

Novak Djokovic tied the record for comeback victories at Wimbledon on Friday, this one against a much smaller deficit with far less drama.

It was the 27th match in a row Djokovic has won at the All England Club as he pursues a fourth consecutive title there. He beat Cam Norrie 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in the semifinals to extend his winning streak to 27 matches in a row.

When the heat reached 85 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius) and the air was still on the steamiest afternoon of the fortnight so far, Djokovic looked displeased, often shaking his head or gesticulating toward his guest box.

As opposed to the quarterfinals, where he lost the first two sets to No. 10 seed Jannik Sinner but won in five, it did not take Djokovic long to establish his dominance.

During the match, Djokovic curled his lips as if kissing someone in the stands who had supported Norrie.

The trophy will be won by Djokovic against Nick Kyrgios, who will be making his first major final appearance. A torn abdominal muscle forced Rafael Nadal, a 22-time Grand Slam champion, to withdraw from their semifinal on Friday, making Kyrgios’ match pointless.

This is Djokovic’s 32nd Grand Slam title match, breaking a tie with Roger Federer for the men’s record, and he’ll have a chance to win his 21st major title and seventh at Wimbledon. The only player with more wins on grass is Federer, with eight.

The women’s final is scheduled for Saturday, with Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur facing Kazakhstan’s Elena Rybakina. Those two women will be making their first appearances in a major final since 1962 at Wimbledon.
