Andy Murray remains on course to capitalise on Novak Djokovic's stunning Wimbledon exit as the world number two eased into the last 16 with a 6-3, 7-5, 6-2 victory over Australia's John Millman on Saturday.

Murray has found it almost impossible to get the better of Djokovic over the last three years and suffered painful losses to the world number one in the Australian and French Open finals this year.

But the 29-year-old, beaten in 13 of his last 15 meetings with Djokovic, no longer has to worry about ending that frustrating streak after the Serb was condemned to his earliest Wimbledon defeat for eight years by American 28th seed Sam Querrey.

Murray will play Australian 15th seed Nick Kyrgios or Spain's Feliciano Lopez for a place in the quarter-finals.
