Djokovic survives to make quarter-finals

Defending champion Novak Djokovic has survived a barrage from big-hitting Kevin Anderson to reach his seventh successive Wimbledon quarter-final.

The top seed came from behind to win 6-7 (6-8) 6-7 (6-8) 6-1 6-4 7-5 on Tuesday in a last-16 tie suspended due to bad light on Monday at the end of the fourth set.

The Serb, who has now reached 25 grand slam semi-finals in a row, goes on to face Croatia’s US Open champion Marin Cilic for a place in the semi-finals.

Anderson, the South African 14th seed, fired 40 aces and 71 winners but committed 41 unforced errors.

Djokovic crashed 43 winners past his opponent but hit just 19 unforced errors.
