World number four Novak Djokovic will look to seal a quarter-final berth when he takes on Adrian Mannarino of France in the men's singles event of the Wimbledon later today.

The Serbian maestro had stormed into the last-16 after posting a 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (7-2) win over Latvian player Ernests Gulbis on Saturday.

Earlier, the quarter-final clash between Djokovic and Mannarino was delayed on safety grounds.

Djokovic was due to follow Rafael Nadal on Court Number One but the Spaniard's defeat to David Muller lasted four hours and 47 minutes, thus making it impossible for the Serbian's match to be completed before dark.

The winner of today's last-16 contest will face Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych for a place in the semi-final.

Meanwhile, in women's singles event, all-four quarter finals will be played today. Venus Williams, Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza, Svetlana Kuznetsova and others will be seen in action.
