Three-time champ Djokovic against looked sharp, blowing past the talented Russian Karen Khachanov 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 to put him in his 10th Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Jul 9, 2018; London, United Kingdom; Kei Nishikori (JAP) during his match against Ernests Gulbis (LAT) on day seven at All England Lawn and Croquet Club.

American ninth seed John Isner also reached his first Wimbledon quarter-final at the 10th attempt on Monday with a 6-4, 7-6 (10/8), 7-6 (7/4) win over Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas. He's got weapons, he's got a big first serve, he's got a big forehand, but I managed to get a lot of first serves back in play, make him play always an extra shot. I mean, he played well. It's always a big challenge. He's one of the best players on the tour.

"I guess I just kind of panicked a little bit". He was defeated by Milos Raonic in 2014 and retired hurt during the second set against Marin Cilic in 2016. "Not just Wimbledon. It's been a while since I've been in the quarter-finals of any Grand Slam", Isner commented.

The loss marks the second third-round defeat for Osaka at Wimbledon, who lost in straight sets to Venus William at her debut appearance in 2017.

"I like my chances against Nishikori", said Djokovic. I just didn't want to pull out so I could even take the third set."The Latvian saved two set points with some strong returns but both players made unforced errors, Gulbis missing a volley and Nishikori serving two double faults before the Japanese finally clinched it 12-10 after nearly three and a half hours".

"I haven't spent too much time on the court".

"Mentally and physically, he is not capable right now of playing seven matches in two weeks of grand slam tennis".

Djokovic's run to the Queen's final on the eve of Wimbledon was his first appearance in a championship match since Eastbourne nearly 12 months earlier. "Indian Wells, Miami, most of the clay court season", added Djokovic. "The last couple of games I couldn't really see the ball very clearly, it was already getting very dark, and it was very windy throughout the entire match, so I just had to hang in there". Unfortunately that's it for me for this year.

"I was a top-three player for so many years in a row, it was quite a unusual feeling for me not to be able to deliver my game that I know that I possess, that I know I've been delivering for so many years". Everybody does. 'He has a good team around him, people who know how to work, who know what to give him, these extra things.
