  • Djokovic Plays Through Pain, Reaches Wimbledon Quarterfinals

The decision means that the victor of Djokovic vs Mannarino will not benefit from the usual rest day before their last-eight tie against 2010 finalist Tomas Berdych, who outlasted Dominic Thiem in five sets. "He was not very pleased to see that", Djokovic told British broadcaster BBC after the match.

"It's been something that I've been dragging back and forth for a while now", Djokovic said.

The match should have been played yesterday, but it had to be moved for today after a marathon match between Gilles Muller and Rafael Nadal, that were scheduled before these two.

The world number four did not seem too anxious about that after the win, but he did express his concerns over the state of the grass on the showpiece court, which has looked very worn this year. On Friday, American Bethanie Mattek-Sands suffered an horrific knee injury.Reigning champion Andy Murray has complained about the condition of the courts at Wimbledon, adding his name to a growing list of players who have voiced concerns.

"But the grass is probably the most complex surface to make, to maintain".

During the third set, with Djokovic already up a break, the second-seeded Serb asked for a medical timeout and a trainer examined and stretched his right shoulder. I've done it in straight sets.

With more rain expected through the afternoon, there was the prospect of a frustrating day ahead for players and spectators. "He knows and understands the big matches".

Kerber, Venus Williams and French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko led the complaints on Monday and Navratilova has backed them up.

Their only previous match came during Wimbledon a year ago when Djokovic knocked out the Frenchman in straight sets. The 12-time Grand Slam champion has been bothered by elbow and shoulder issues over the past year, including withdrawing from the Miami Open in March due to a cranky elbow.

The first of those saw Martin Klizan retire against him, but straight-set wins against Adam Pavlasek and Ernests Gulbis were both strong efforts.

As a effect, thanks to indecision, Djokovic and Mannarino found themselves opening play 24-hours later on Centre Court, under the roof, as rain also became a factor affecting some of the play on the outside courts.

One of them has her arms around Djokovic. Williams' 73-minute masterclass on Centre Court clinched a 6-3, 7-5 victory that made her the most senior player to reach the semi-finals since Martina Navratilova in 1994.
