Novak Djokovic Criticizes Wimbledon Officials After His Match Is Delayed

Novak Djokovic belatedly advanced to the 2017 Wimbledon quarter-finals on Tuesday after a 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4 win over Adrian Mannarino saw the Serb clinch his spot in the last eight after their fourth-round duel was postponed.

"It's been something that I've been dragging back and forth for a while now", Djokovic said about his shoulder.

However, the world No. 4 wasn't in a particularly happy mood, regardless of his on-court brilliance, and he found himself in frequent discussions with umpire Bernardes, which often left Djokovic shaking his head - the contents of which I'm sure we'll discover in due course.

"The last match on the Centre Court was done before seven (o'clock)".

Twelve months ago he defeated the Frenchman in the second round."I'm delighted with the performance".

He cited allegations of threats of collective punishment and forced evictions in Mosul by Iraqi security forces and their allies. Iraq's premier fighting force has lost 40 per cent of its men in the battle to liberate Mosul from Islamic State control.

Djokovic said the scheduled Court 1 fixture should have been moved to Centre Court.

"She says, 'I love my job!' and she means it". During the third set, he asked for a medical timeout and the physio had a look at his shoulder.

Now with both over 30, there was an element of experience coming into play - Nadal has far more that the deeper levels of a slam, but Muller's gritty determination as much as anything kept the ball in play.

And while he acknowledged the challenge conditions have posed, Djokovic, a three-time singles champion at the All England Club, has made no attempt to disguise his displeasure at being presented with a sub-par stage on which to perform. "It's not easy. They're trying their best but I've played on better courts".

Another early break in the third set him on his way and he didn't look back on his way to a straight sets win.

Jelena Djokovic indicated that may not have gone down well in the Serbian second seed's camp. In the other match, Rybarikova was leading 6-3, 2-2 when rain halted play. In the last five matches of Novak Djokovic, he won all the matches.

He also expressed confidence that the surface at Centre Court would be able to hold up over the second week.

Mannarino has never reached the quarter-final of any Grand Slam with his best being a fourth round finish at Wimbledon in 2013.

The men's quarterfinals Wednesday: Djokovic against Tomas Berdych, Roger Federer against Milos Raonic, defending champion Andy Murray against Sam Querrey, and Marin Cilic against Gilles Muller, who stunned Rafael Nadal in a marathon that ended 15-13 in the fifth set Monday.
