World no.1 Novak Djokovic reached his 12th Wimbledon quarter-final on Monday following a 6-2, 6-4, 6-2 victory over 17th seed Cristian Garin.

The Serbian star improved to a 76-10 W/L record at the All England Club.

Novak outplayed the Chilean with a dominant service performance throughout the three sets on Centre Court. The match lasted one hour and 48 minutes.

Djokovic broke serve five times and saved both break points he faced. He won 92% of points on his first serve and was 22/29 on net approaches.

“Third round was up and down, but today was a solid performance. Using the court well, serving better. Cristian was nervous, particularly in the first set. When I serve well, it gives me more confidence from the back of the court,” Novak said. “The further I go in the tournament, the more comfortable I feel and I look forward to the next challenge.”

Match statistics: aces (8-2), double faults (1-5), winners (27-14), unforced errors (23-26), total points won (93-57).

In his 50th Grand Slam quarter-final appearance, Novak will play 48th-ranked Marton Fucsovics (2-0 H2H) on Wednesday.

The Hungarian defeated fifth-seeded Russian Andrey Rublev in five sets.

Djokovic is bidding to win his sixth Wimbledon trophy, which would be a record-equalling 20th major crown.
