Wimbledon: Novak Djokovic looks to avenge 2010 loss to Tomas Berdych

Djokovic will be playing in his 17th successive Grand Slam quarter-final. "I hadn't played great at that match against Tomas, but credit to him because he played finals that year, and he beat Roger and myself, played a good match against Rafa in the final. So he knows how to play on grass." With Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal both suffering shock early defeats, he is taking nothing for granted against Berdych.

London: Novak Djokovic tackles Tomas Berdych for a place in the Wimbledon semi-finals Wednesday still feeling the raw pain of his defeat to the Czech at the All England Club three years ago.

World number one Djokovic was beaten in straight sets in the semi-finals by Berdych in 2010, a defeat which raised serious doubts over whether or not the gifted but unpredictable Serb would ever build on his Australian Open breakthrough of 2008.

He lost that day but has since has gone on to win five more majors including the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open crowns in 2011.
