  • Djokovic complains of

Djokovic and Mannarino were scheduled to face off on Monday evening, but the match was pushed back after Gilles Muller required close to five hours to pull off a memorable upset of tournament front-runner Rafael Nadal. But, yeah, his serve is huge.

Djokovic got off to the ideal start, breaking Mannarino for a 2-0 lead in the first set and the manner of the performance was mightily impressive.

On his second set point, Djokovic slashed his third ace to seal the set. In the other match, Rybarikova was leading 6-3, 2-2 when rain halted play. "I'm glad it's all done and looking forward to the next one".

The variety of shots not only in length and angles but in terms of pace and spin was frightening, with Mannarino having to fight for everything just to get a game on the board.

"That's two points in a row at the beginning of the match", Djokovic said, before telling official Jake Garner: "Focus, please!"

Of course my team mate Geraint Thomas as well, he crashed out today with a broken collarbone, so I've got mixed feelings. Geraint Thomas was sitting in a Sky team auto , his shoulder wrapped in gauze, wondering if his 2017 season is cursed.

Three of Djokovic's 12 major championships have come at Wimbledon, and after a real dip in results over the past 12 months, he has not dropped a set so far this fortnight. Djokovic has been broken just twice this tournament and is winning no less than 42 percent of his return points. "I am, too. Sometimes, in the heat of the moment, you exchange things", Djokovic said.

I've actually watched that back quite a few times - I don't know why.

"The weather in the first week of play was also unusually warm, with the sun beating down constantly and temperatures regularly hitting the high 20s, which took a noticeable toll on the grass, particularly around the baselines. Looks like he's feeling good and playing well, so it's going to be a tough match, for sure".

Their only previous match came during Wimbledon past year when Djokovic knocked out the Frenchman in straight sets.

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

Aaron Judge surpasses Joe DiMaggio's Yankees single-season rookie home run record
Judge is hitting.331 with 65 RBIs and 104 strikeouts. "That's a pretty special name he passed", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. It took DiMaggio 128 games to reach 29 homers in his rookie season, but Judge eclipsed it in his 82nd game this year.

There was no threat to the Centre Court action, where the roof was closed ahead of the start of play.

"As late as 8:30 p.m., 30,000 people still remained in the grounds, and therefore moving the match would have created a significant safety issue".

The capacity on Centre Court is a little under 15,000 seats.

Venus Williams became the oldest Wimbledon semi-finalist for 23 years as the five-time champion brushed aside French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko, while Garbine Muguruza powered past Svetlana Kuznetsova to make it back to the last four.

Mount Murray is a coveted spot on Day 3 at Wimbledon
No British woman has won the singles title since Virginia Wade in 1977. "I'm pretty sure favourites also come and go. He said, after the match: "Every time I give my best till the end".
