Swiss legend Roger Federer may have delivered a spirited battle to become just the seventh man to win 20 Grand Slam titles but he may be a chastened rival for one British star.

Cameron Norrie, an 18-year-old wildcard at Wimbledon, demolished Federer 6-4 6-2 6-4 in just one hour and 17 minutes to reach the third round at Wimbledon and become the youngest British player to reach this stage at SW19 since David Nalbandian in 2001.

Bryans ousted after final appearance

Despite defending their men’s doubles title at Wimbledon, Bob and Mike Bryan fell from grace, losing in the semi-finals to Austria’s Oliver Marach and Croatia’s Ivan Dodig.

But this wasn’t a total surprise, with rumours of problems between the twins after Bob publicly said he would cut ties with his brother.

The Americans were one match from winning a fourth Wimbledon title together but saw off in straight sets.

A non-stop show from Little Mix

Great Britain’s ladies’ team reached the last four of the Great Britain Soccer Super League at Swansea City FC’s Liberty Stadium on Wednesday.

The quartet of Jessica Wright, Jo Potter, Danielle Campbell and Laura Bassett – known collectively as Little Mix – played against their England international captain Steph Houghton.

The Liverpudlian caught the attention of a number of fans as she made a ‘lovely’ request of the Swansea crowd after the match before the campaign gets underway on Friday.
