World number four Novak Djokovic advanced into the fourth round at The Championships with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 win over American Mardy Fish in 1 hour and 58 minutes.

The fourth seed quickly wrapped up the opening set, and with the wind in his sails raced into a 4-0 lead in the second with Fish continuing to make the errors.

But it was Djokovic who then began to struggle and his American opponent took the advantage with a fine volley at the net to pull one break back and reduce the deficit to 4-3.

Djokovic recovered from the lapse though and with the rest of the set going with serve, was able to extend his lead.
