Djokovic’s flawless performance was helped along by Sock, who produced more than double the amount of unforced errors than his opponent, 22 to Djokovic’s 10. Not only did the top seed keep his unforced errors to a minimum, the Serbian superstar also managed an impressive four breaks of his opponent’s serve in what was their first meetings on tour.

Djokovic, who won the Rogers Cup in 2007, 2011, and 2012, has won 50 of his 53 matches this year and will play Ernests Gulbis in the next round. The Latvian put out Donald Young in straight sets to reach his first quarter final of the year

Gulbis needed to qualify for the tournament, having slipped down the rankings and finding himself out of the worlds top 80. Djokovic will know of the threat the Latvian can pose, having played Gulbis 6 times, with Djokovic leading their head-to-head 5-1.

Another winner on centre court on Thursday was #2 seed Andy Murray who also made light work of his opponent, beating the dangerous Gilles Muller in straight sets. After losing his first match in Washington last week the Scot bounced back and he is playing very well in this hardcourt event.

Murray’s 6-4 6-4 win today means he will face 2014 champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga who dispatched of Australian Bernard Tomic in straight sets in the evening session Wednesday night.
