PinExt Djokovic moves into Wimbledon Quarters as he overcomes Troicki

World no.1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic didn’t waste too much time on center court today as he raced to a straight sets win over fellow Serbian Viktor Troicki, winning 6-3  6-1  6-3.

Troicki started the match with an immediate break, but couldn’t capitalise on it as Djoko stepped up a gear and made it very clear to everyone that he wants to finish off his opponent as soon as possible to save some energy for the remaining matches.

It took a mere 52 minutes for Djokovic to wrap up the first two sets in front of the London crowd, who were hoping for a closer match after Azarenka demolished Ivanovic just an hour before this encounter.

The third set offered a bit more even battle, but it was the world no.1 once again, who managed to take Troicki’s serve in the sixth game to go 4-2 up. After Djokovic averted a couple of break points on his own serve in the following game, he kept his composure till the end and sailed to a comfortable victory.

In the quarterfinals, Djokovic will play German Florian Mayer, who overcame Frenchman Richard Gasquet 6-3  6-1  3-6  6-2.
