Flushing Meadows, NY (SportsNetwork.com) -
Novak Djokovic raced into his 22nd straight Grand Slam quarterfinal, where he'll meet Andy Murray in a rematch of the 2012 men's final at the U.S. Open.
The world No. 1 stalwart and seven-time major champion Djokovic thwarted 22nd-seeded German Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-1, 7-5, 6-4 in just over two hours at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on Labor Day in the United States.
The last time Djokovic lost before the quarterfinals in a Grand Slam event was five years ago against Kohlschreiber in Paris. The Serb has now reached eight straight U.S. Open quarterfinals and won his last 11 Grand Slam matches overall.
