Wimbledon: Djokovic in quarters after beating Mannarino in postponed match

The match was postponed after the marathon battle between Rafa Nadal and Gilles Muller ended late on Monday on Court One.

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 world No. 51 secured a break to get the second set back on serve after the Serb had served a double fault to gift him two chances.

Andre Agassi and Mario Ancic - both part of the three-time Wimbledon winner's coaching setup - routinely conversed with a sense of approval throughout as Djokovic maintained his record of not dropping a set en route to the business end of the competition.

Jelena Djokovic indicated that may not have gone down well in the Serbian second seed's camp. In the last five matches of Adrian Mannarino, he has won four matches and lost one match in Antalya against Yuichi Sugita.

Former world No1 Djokovic (30) recently started working with Agassi, an eight-time grand slam champion, in a bid to reinvigorate his game.

Djokovic, who will face Czech Tomas Berdych in the last eight, received treatment to his shoulder during a medical time-out late in the third set.

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.

The schedule has also been brought forward to 12pm so as not to delay the two scheduled quarter-finals, although there are concerns about inclement weather and its effect on the two quarter-finals scheduled on No. 1 Court.

Garbine Muguruza was playing Svetlana Kuznetsova in the women's quarterfinals.

Five-time champion Venus Williams made it on the Centre Court bill, while British home favourite Johanna Konta was put on Court One, which holds 11,000.

Lewis also stressed that Wimbledon - again, uniquely among the majors - had stand-alone ladies' quarter-finals and semi-finals day.

The match on Centre Court is being played with the roof closed.

The rain has started on Day 8 at Wimbledon, and play has been suspended.

What was equally surprising was the match, which was due to be played on No1 Court, wasn't quickly rescheduled to Centre when it became vacant at around 7.00pm the previous evening.
