Quarter-final match for duo

MIAMI - Defending champion Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic will meet for the first time since last year's Wimbledon final after advancing with ease Tuesday into the Miami Masters quarter-finals.

Wimbledon winner Murray dispatched French 11th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-4, 6-1 while second seed Djokovic gave away a second-set point in a sporting gesture to Tommy Robredo during a 6-3, 7-5 triumph.

Britain's sixth-seeded Murray, who trails the Serb 8-11 in their all-time rivalry, was looking forward to a repeat match with Djokovic after not playing him since last July.

"We've played a lot and we always have long, tough matches. This will be a good test for me," Murray said.

Murray, who underwent back surgery six months ago, improved to 9-1 against Tsonga, advancing in 74 minutes.

Djokovic surrendered a point to his 16th-seeded Spanish rival in the third game of the second set after a linesman mistakenly called a Robredo return out.
