Cheering him on will be girlfriend Louise Jacobi, who was in tears after his quarter-final. 

Interior designer Louise, 32, yesterday told how he flew her to see him in Vienna after they first met in New York.

She said: “I thought, ‘I guess this guy doesn’t live a normal life’.”

She added of his chances against the Serb: “It’s definitely going to be a tough match. But I know he can do it.”

Watching on TV in Cardiff will be the star’s great uncle Ralph Williams, 85, who has not seen Cameron since he was 12.

Ralph, brother of his Welsh grandad Glyn, said: “I went to see them in New Zealand. It was before Cameron took up tennis. But we’ve sort of drifted apart since.

“They don’t want to know an old fogey like me. It’s nice he has done so well and I’m hoping he gets to the final.” 

If he does, it will be warm again on Sunday, before things get hotter.

 The Met Office’s David Oliver said: “Many can expect temperatures in the mid-to-high 20s over the weekend, and then in the low 30s during the start of next week.”
