“He started off with a break. He made a couple of great shots but I managed to break and get back into the set. He’s got weapons, a big first serve and a big forehand, but I managed to get serves back and make him play another shot,” he added.

With a 10th appearance in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, Djokovic moves into a tie with Andy Murray behind Roger Federer (16), Jimmy Connors (14) and Boris Becker (11).
