Djokovic suffers injury scare en route to Wimbledon quarters

Djokovic suffers injury scare en route to Wimbledon quarters

Djokovic, the second seed, made it past Mannarino in straight sets, 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4.

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

However, the world No. 4 wasn't in a particularly happy mood, regardless of his on-court brilliance, and he found himself in frequent discussions with umpire Bernardes, which often left Djokovic shaking his head - the contents of which I'm sure we'll discover in due course.

Wimbledon has defended shunting top women players onto the outside courts on "Manic Monday", saying the big four of men's tennis were the marquee matches demanded by broadcasters and spectators.

Twelve months ago he defeated the Frenchman in the second round."I'm delighted with the performance".

There were 6 mini-breaks in the first 7 points but Novak managed to convert his second set point to increase his lead to 2-0.

The one major concern for Djokovic and his team will be the Serb's need to receive treatment on his right arm during the third set, although it's unclear at this stage what the issue is.

Djokovic was also troubled with his shoulder. "But I've played on better courts".

Asked whether he supported the introduction of a tiebreak fifth set, Djokovic said: "Yes". They won first three rounds in this series.

Djokovic, who was twice treated for a shoulder injury during his win over Mannarino, will have just a day to recover before taking on world No.15 and 2010 runner-up Tomas Berdych for a place in the semi-finals. Tuesday also includes all four women's quarterfinals: Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams vs. 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko, followed by No. 2 Simona Halep vs. Wimbledon is the only Slam that attempts to push through the men's and the women's fourth round matches so that from Tuesday the men and the women alternate with a full day of rest the rest of the way to the final.

Djokovic said the conditions were not risky, but the uneven surface could cause unpredictable bounces and affect the outcome of points and even matches.

A statement from the All England Club declared a decision not to switch the match between Djokovic and Adrian Mannarino from third on Court 1 to Centre Court was taken on safety grounds.
