Djokovic beats Mannarino to reach Wimbledon quarter-finals

World no. 4 Novak Djokovic reached the last-8 of Wimbledon Open with a straight-set victory over Adrian Mannarino on Tuesday.

In the match, which was postponed from Monday following Rafa Nadal and Gilles Muller’s four hour and 48 minute tie, the Serb beat his French opponent 6-2 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 in two hours and 13 minutes.

Djokovic received treatment on his right shoulder during the match, and told reporters after the win that it’s something that has been “dragging back and forth for a while, but I am still managing to play.”
