Novak Djokovic Beats Britain's Kyle Edmund at Wimbledon

Klahn was unable to force a break point on Edmund's serve as the British No 1 raced to victory

Playing high-intensity matches where one serve or one shot can really swing the momentum one or the other side, obviously there is a lot of accumulation of emotions, especially in the decisive moments of the set and matches.

The match was scheduled third on Centre Court on Saturday in an attempt to avoid a direct clash with England's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden.

The downside, according to Edmund's co-coach Mark Hilton, is that he will have a hard time maintaining his focus on a day when he will inevitably be tempted to follow events at the Samara Arena.

"I thought the crowd's reaction after (the time violation) was quite unnecessary".

"Obviously he will want to know what's going on, you can't stop that". I just would have liked to have won today, but it didn't happen.

Djokovic, the 12th seed, said the Centre Court atmosphere was more hostile than when he played Andy Murray in the 2012 Olympics and the 2013 Wimbledon final. There's nothing you can say about that. He's had a great year so far, he's legitimate, people respect him in the locker room so we'll see what he's got to offer, but I think it's highly unlikely that Edmund is going to win this unless Djokovic is hurt.' The former world no.


"I didn't deserve to be treated the way I was treated by certain individuals".

There was another flash point in the fourth set when umpire Jake Garner, having awarded Djokovic a point on an over-rule to leave Edmund facing two break points, decided the Yorkshireman had retrieved a drop volley before the ball bounced twice.

"But I'm going to show that I'm present, as well, that they can't do whatever they feel like doing". Kyle is a very nice guy.

Djokovic is into the last 16 of a major for the 44th time to take him second on the all-time list.

"I was 100 per cent convinced it [bounced] twice, " Djokovic said.

"If you hit it with the frame, it's supposed to kind of slow down the trajectory of the ball".
