Novak Djokovic remained on course for his fourth Wimbledon title after dispatching Adrian Mannarino under the Centre Court roof on Tuesday.
The fourth-round match was due to be played on Court One on Monday, but Gilles Muller’s marathon five-set victory over Rafael Nadal concluded late making it impossible for the match to be completed before dark.
The second seed made a blistering start, despite summoning the doctor after just three games, winning it 6-2 in just over half an hour against the Frenchman.
World No 51 Mannarino lost an early 4-2 advantage when he tightened up to allow the 12-time Grand Slam champion to seal it 7-6 (7-5).
Djokovic broke early in the third but the required treatment for a right shoulder problem after the fifth game and a medical timeout at 4-3 to treat the same problem.
He will next take on Tomas Berdych today (Wednesday) and the Serb will go into the match as firm favourite to reach his eighth Wimbledon semi-final after boasting an impressive 25-2 career record over the 2010 Wimbledon runner-up.
