It was also Becker v Ivanisevic, coaches who are both former winners of the competition.
Like Murray, Djokovic was in control and looked very comfortable against the big Croatian. Cilic couldn’t have done any better and that just shows how good Djokovic is.
He won 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 which was unusual but it shows it was close with only one break in serve in each set.
Novak Djokovic will now play against Richard Gasquet who shocked Stan Wawrinka in a 5 set thriller on court 1. It was also a full Swiss against French quarter finals day on court 1 as Roger Federer beat Giles Simon in the match before.
