London - Novak Djokovic fended off a brief challenge from Ernests Gulbis to reach the Wimbledon last 16 on Saturday as women's top seed Angelique Kerber scraped into the business end of the championships.

Djokovic was a break down in the first set and was taken to a tie break in the third but beat Gulbis 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (7/2) on Centre Court, before Roger Federer took on Mischa Zverev.

"I'm delighted with the performance. I thought I raised the level of tennis," said three-time champion Djokovic after making the second week without dropping a set.
