Where to watch live

The match starts at 3.30pm BST. Live coverage of the game is available on BBC One. Real-time internet updates are available on Wimbledon's official website.

Overview

Djokovic suffered a scare against Kevin Anderson before emerging victorious in five sets. The world number one needed two days and five sets to overcome the South African and his 40 aces.

The victory over the world number 14 took the Serbian into his 25th consecutive Grand Slam quarter-final and he will hope that he can make his 27th Grand Slam semi-final, and sixth in a row when he faces the 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic.

The big-serving Croatian, who lost to Djokovic at the same stage in the competition last season after a grueling five-set encounter, will be hoping to go one step further and better his best performance at the All England Club.

The world number nine, who has a dismal record against Djokovic, will hope to get one over the world number one, especially after he was pushed to the limit by Anderson in the previous match.
