Djokovic reaches Wimbledon quarter-final

Novak Djokovic reached the quarter-final stage at Wimbledon with a straight-sets victory over Chile’s Cristian Garin.

Djokovic eased into the last-eight at the All England Club for the 12th time, 6-2, 6-4, 6-2. He broke serve five times in the game and hit 28 winners, twice as many as his 17th-seeded Chilean opponent.

“Confidence levels are very high after winning the French Open,” Djokovic said to newsmen after the game. “It was one of my biggest wins in the circumstances – two five-setters, two four-setters in the second week.

“They took a lot out of me but they also gave me wings. The further I go in the tournament, the more comfortable I feel and I look forward to the next challenge.”

Djokovic will face Hungary’s Marton Fucsovics in what would be the 50th grand slam quarter-final for the World Number 1. The Serbian is chasing a sixth Wimbledon crown and a record-equalling 20th major title.

The French Open champion is also on course to claim all the major grand slams in a calendar year. Only two men have swept all four majors in the same year with Rod Laver the most recent, back in 1969.
