Wimbledon 2017: Roger Federer & Novak Djokovic through to fourth round

Former champions Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic were in impressive form as they reached the fourth round at Wimbledon in straight sets.

The 35-year-old Federer kept up the form that has seen him rated as the favourite to land a record eighth title, and first since 2012, reports BBC.

Third seed Swiss played superbly in a 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 6-4 win over German 27th seed Mischa Zverev on Centre Court.

Djokovic, seeded second, had earlier looked fired up as he beat Latvia's Ernests Gulbis 6-4 6-1 7-6 (7-2).

"I am delighted with my performance today," said Djokovic, 30.

"I thought I raised the level of tennis, comparing to the first couple of matches. This was the most focused I have been on the court and it came at the right time."

Federer will play Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov and Djokovic faces Adrian Mannarino in the last 16 on Monday.
