Meeting Rybakina in Saturday’s women’s singles showpiece will be third seed Ons Jabeur, who beat Tatjana Maria in three sets to reach her first Grand Slam final.

Up first on Centre Court today is the first of two women’s doubles semi-finals today, with fourth seeds Lyudmyla Kichenok and Jelena Ostapenko taking on second seeds Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova.

Britain’s Norrie will then take to court in his first-ever Grand Slam semi-final, as he plays top seed and reigning champion Djokovic. The eagerly-anticipated semi-final clash between Nick Kyrgios and Rafael Nadal is off, however, after the latter was forced to pull out with an abdominal injury.
