Cam Norrie set to for minor fortune in prize money after making Wimbledon semis

British tennis star Cameron Norrie is set for a major windfall as he continues to advance at Wimbledon.

Norrie set up a date with Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon semi-finals after he overcame a tense encounter with David Goffin. The Brit recovered from a shaky start to win the game in five sets to the relief of the Court 1 crowd.

It's the first time in the Brit's career he's reached a grand slam semi-final. But no matter what happens on Centre Court on Friday, Norrie has already swelled his pockets with a handsome cash injection of £473,000 for his troubles.

Even after pocketing almost half a million, there are bigger prizes on the horizon for Norrie.

Should the Brit continue to pull up trees in SW19, a final appearance could bag him just over £1million. And should Norrie become the first Brit since Andy Murray to lift the shield, he would pocket himself £1.8million.

All that cash comes from an eye-watering overall prize pool of £35million, with single champions taking up the majority of the cash.

Norrie said after his win: "Honestly, I’m just speechless. I can’t even talk.

"So happy to get through which such a great team, and such a great family and friends here."
