LONDON - Defending champion Andy Murray has reached the Wimbledon last 16 with a 6-2 6-3 6-2 win over Spanish 27th seed Roberto Bautista Agut.

In what will be his eighth appearance in the fourth round in nine years, Murray will face South African 20th seed Kevin Anderson for a place in the quarter-finals.

Murray has made the last 16 for the loss of just 19 games, beating his previous Wimbledon best of 26 games conceded in 2010.

"I responded well, it's been a good first week. I had plenty of long matches at the French Open to get me physically ready for this."

On facing Anderson, the Murray added: "He's a big guy with a big game and playing some of the best tennis of his career.

Meanwhile, Lleyton Hewitt fightback has come up short as he fell in five sets to Jerzy Janowicz.
