9:06 am on 28 June 2014

Top seed Novak Djokovic survived a shoulder injury scare to reach the fourth round at the Wimbledon grass court tennis grand slam tournament, while defending champion Andy Murray progressed without any such fuss.

Murray beat Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets 6-2 6-3 6-2 to book a round of 16 clash with South African Kevin Anderson, while the Scot's joined by Serb star Djokovic, who prevailed 6-4 6-2 6-4 over Frenchman Gilles Simon.

It's the seventh successive victory over Simon for Djokovic, the 2011 champion, who next faces French 14th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in the quarter-finals.

Chinese star Li Na fell in one of the day's big upsets, the second seed losing in two tiebreakers to unseeded Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, while on the men's side, Croatian Marin Cilic beat sixth-seeded Czech Tomas Berdych 7-6 6-4 7-6.

Also through are Polish 15th seed Jerzy Janowicz, who knocked out Australian veteran and 2002 champion Lleyton Hewitt 7-5 6-4 6-7 4-6 6-3, sixth seeded Czech Petra Kvitova, who eliminated American great Venus Williams 5-7 7-6 7-5, fourth seeded Pole Agnieszka Radwanska, Romanian third seed Simona Halep and Danish 10th seed Caroline Wozniacki.

Marina Erakovic's Wimbledon is over after the New Zealand number one lost her mixed doubles first round match.
