Novak Djokovic advanced to the fourth round after defeating Frenchman Gilles Simon at Wimbledon in straight sets despite injuring his shoulder in the third set.


Djokovic advanced with a 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 win and hurt his shoulder in the third set when he landed heavily but was otherwise untroubled.

According to the BBC, the world number two would face 14th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga next after the Frenchman beat Jimmy Wang 6-2, 6-2, 7-5.

Meanwhile, Croatia's Marin Cilic defeated Czech sixth seed Tomas Berdych in straight sets, finishing in some controversy.

Cilic, the 26th seed, won 7-6 6-4 7-6 but Berdych was fuming throughout the third set tiebreak after play was allowed to continue despite the Hawk-Eye line-call system being turned off because of the fading light.

Berdych, who remonstrated with the umpire over what he felt were a number of bad line calls, said that how was it possible, adding that he lost all the will to talk to that guy any more as he saw so many mistakes from him.

Moreover South Africa's Kevin Anderson advanced to the last 16 with a 4-6, 6-4, 2-6, 6-2, 6-1 win over 16th seed Fabio Fognini in five sets and would now face Murray in round four.

Also, Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov, seeded 11, came back to beat Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-7 (3-7), 6-4, 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 and will face Leonardo Mayer of Argentina, who beat Andrey Kuznetsov 6-4, 7-6 (7-1), 6-3 in round four.

Colombian Santiago Giraldo beat 30th seed Marcel Granollers 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 1-6, 6-1, 7-5 to set up a third-round match against seven-time champion Roger Federer.
