The world No 1 broke late in the first set before serving for victory - and he followed suit in the second to win by the same score. His strengths are massaging the ball around the court with precision so once he found some rhythm he was able to produce some nice points but with no real power there just aren't any free points coming his way.

Kerber is a former No. 1 and two-time major champion who was the runner-up at the All England Club two years ago and a semifinalist in 2012.

With Kevin Anderson taking nearly three and a half hours to tame French showman Gael Monfils in the previous match, Djokovic knew he had about two hours of daylight left if he wanted to avoid coming back on Tuesday's rest day to finish off the contest.

"I actually did get a bit emotional that I was in the last 16 of a Grand Slam that I have been dreaming of winning one day", Tsitsipas said. "But when I come here, I come here thinking that I can do a good result, no?"
