Novak Djokovic beats Cameron Norrie to reach Wimbledon final

Novak Djokovic fashioned a second consecutive comeback victory at Wimbledon on Friday, this one with a deficit far less daunting, the drama far less palpable.

The top-seeded Djokovic beat No. 9 seed Cam Norrie of Britain 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in the semifinals to run his winning streak

at the All England Club to 27 matches as he pursues a fourth straight championship there.

On the steamiest afternoon of the fortnight so far, with the temperature reaching 85 degrees and the air still, Djokovic got off to a slow start and often looked displeased

 shaking his head or gesticulating toward his guest box. But unlike in the quarterfinals, when he dropped the opening two sets against No.

10 seed Jannik Sinner before winning in five, it took little time for Djokovic to assert his dominance.

When it ended, Djokovic curled his lips as if sending a kiss to someone in the stands who had been backing Norrie during the match."The job," Djokovic said, "is not finished."
