Two games later, Djokovic buried a backhand in the corner for more break points. "It's not a good sign, and you should always take the players' opinion seriously, especially when both say it".

Mixing his slice backhand with his two-handed drive, Djokovic slide a slice down the line drawing a netted reply to break for a 2-0 second-set lead. Of course, some players would still love to swap seasons with him, but for the former world No.1, he needs a strong effort at Wimbledon or he could risk dropping further. Pliskova lost in the second round, and Kerber lost in the fourth round. She will face American Venus Williams. Johanna Konta was then scheduled to play Simona Halep.

On his second set point, Djokovic slashed his third ace to seal the set. "He knows and understands the big matches".

The Serb, who had been stuck waiting for the end of that battle only to be sent home, said it would have been better to have moved his match to the, by then unused, Centre Court.

Williams, who is 37 years old, made her Wimbledon debut in the same month that Ostapenko was born.

Muller has had an incredible year so far, winning his first ever tour title at the start of the year in Brisbane, and backing that up with the title in 's-Hertogenbosch and reaching the semi=-final at Queen's. Magdalena Rybarikova and CoCo Vandeweghe were to follow.

Novak Djokovic has safely booked his place in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon courtesy of a straight-sets victory over Adrian Mannarino this afternoon.

When I first played at Wimbledon I ate pizza before my matches and was staying in someone's basement, so I've come a pretty long way. No. 21 Caroline Garcia, No. 7 Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. 2012 runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 5 Caroline Wozniacki vs. "Having in mind that Centre Court has the roof and lights, we could have played till 11".

Novak Djokovic was bothered more by a sore right shoulder than by his opponent as he won another match in straight sets to make the last eight at Wimbledon.

What was equally surprising was the match, which was due to be played on No1 Court, wasn't quickly rescheduled to Centre when it became vacant at around 7.00pm the previous evening.

Right after his, er, conversation with Garner, Djokovic lost a service game to trail 2-1.

Read on for a roundup of Tuesday's Wimbledon results, complete with a recap and highlights of the day's best moments.

The main action at the All England Club has yet to start, but other matches on the outside courts are already being delayed by rain.

Djokovic's game was held over from Monday night as it was supposed to be on Court One but Rafael Nadal and Gilles Muller's five-set epic meant it had to be postponed. He was to play Adrian Mannarino.

Djokovic is not the only leading player through to the last eight despite injury troubles.

Centre Court has a roof, but No. 1 Court does not.
