Murray remained on track to defend his title in Miami after brushing aside 11th seed, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the fourth round on Tuesday.

The world number six achieved his progress within 74 minutes with a, 6-4, 6-1, victory in straight sets to extend his winning streak against the Frenchman to eight matches.

The next obstacle in the Scotsman's path is world number two Novak Djokovic, who overcame Tommy Robredo, 6-3, 7-5, in the fourth round. The Serbian needed a little over an hour and 22 minutes to send the Spaniard packing out of the competition.

Djokovic is aiming to lift win the trophy for the fourth time in Miami, but has to get past Murray in the quarterfinal before he intends to do so. The Brit is also keen on lifting the coveted prize for the second time in a row, hoping to become the fifth player to achieve the feat.

Both players know each other's strengths and weaknesses very well as they have pitted their skills against each other 19 times in the past. Their latest meeting came in the final of last year's Wimbledon Championships, where Murray reigned supreme.

The winner between Murray and Djokovic will face the winner between Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori in the semi-finals.
