LONDON - Defending champion Andy Murray has reached his seventh successive Wimbledon quarter-final with a straight sets demolition of Kevin Anderson under the Centre Court roof.

Third-seeded Murray defeated the big-serving South African 6-4 6-3 7-6 and next faces Bulgarian 11th seed Grigor Dimitrov, who reached his first Wimbledon quarter-final with a 6-4 7-6 6-2 win over Argentina's Leonardo Mayer.

The 23-year-old Dimitrov is the first Bulgarian man to make the Wimbledon last eight but has only won one of four matches against Murray.

"All the matches are tough, everyone in the quarter-finals of the slams is playing top tennis," said 27-year-old Murray.

Djokovic has a 12-5 winning record over Tsonga, including the 2011 last-four at Wimbledon as well as the quarter-finals of the 2012 Olympics which were also played at the All England Club.

Djokovic or Tsonga will play Croatian 26th seed Marin Cilic for a place in the semi-finals.
