Djokovic slams Wimbledon crowd after being booed

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

The 23-year-old is the last home player remaining in singles and he eased into the last 32 for the first time with a convincing 6-4 7-6 (7/0) 6-2 victory over American qualifier Bradley Klahn.

Edmund prepared for the match by watching England's World Cup quarter-final win in Wimbledon's locker rooms - and, with flawless timing, walked on court just seconds after the full-time whistle in Samara.

The only concern for Djokovic in his second-round win over Horacio Zeballos was a tweaked left knee late on but he told Serbian media after practising on Friday that it was not a problem.

In his third-round match against Britain's Kyle Edmund, Novak had to fight two battles; one against an inspired opponent and the other against a raucous home crowd.

The fourth set was tighter but Djokovic's more rounded game and experience ultimately proved decisive. Over the years, the Serb has never really received the same support as Federer and Nadal, despite his incredible haul of trophies and records.

Edmund can count himself unfortunate to come across Djokovic so early, with the 12-time grand slam victor back on form and playing considerably above his seeding of 12. It's been that constant learning process.

I think he needs to use all his shots better.

"You have to learn from your losses but I think I put a decent level out on court". When you're serving well on a grass court, it's good. At points in the match it was really loud.

Novak Djokovic blasted Wimbledon's Centre Court crowd on Saturday, claiming fans "whistled and coughed" as he prepared to serve, insisting he deserves better treatment. His groundstrokes crackle but more variety is required.

He sank a five-foot birdie putt at the fourth and one twice as long at the fifth before dropping a 32-footer at the sixth. Kraft birdied the last for an even par 70 and solo second place ahead of compatriots Brandt Snedeker and Jason Kokrak.

How to Watch England vs. Croatia
Either way, they face their biggest test yet this World Cup and in the biggest game of their careers. He's been showing season in, season out that he's one of the best strikers in the Premier League.

Tooting his own horn has not been the style of Edmund, one of life's more unassuming gentlemen, but over the past couple of years he has developed an edge, bristling at suggestions his recent results have been too much of a shock. England got to the semi-finals so we could not miss that.

Asked about the incident in his post-match press conference, Edmund said: 'I was scrambling.

"Some of them kept on going, provoking. That's something that I can tolerate for a little bit, but I'm going to show that I'm present as well, that they can't do whatever they feel like doing". If you were in my position, you would probably understand. But at times they were slightly unfair to me.

He lost to the Yorkshireman on clay in Madrid in May and for a set and a half was bullied by Edmund's mighty forehand before showing why this might be the tournament that launches him back to the top.

This win could prove vital for Djokovic, as he had to contend with both a unsafe opponent and a pro-Edmund crowd.

'I know him and have tons of respect for him, his team.

He has made the third round with the minimum fuss, dropping just 12 games in six sets.

Edmund was a highly impressive cricketer at that age, and his teachers had no doubt he could go to the top in that sport, but there was a choice to make.
