Novak Djokovic (r) and Jeremy Chardy shake hands at the end of their one-sided match on Centre Court
Novak Djokovic was at his clinical best as he cruised into the last 16 of the men's singles with a straight sets victory over Jeremy Chardy.
The top seed hardly broke sweat in his 6-3 6-2 6-2 triumph on Centre Court, where the Serb wrapped up an impressive win in just 89 minutes.
Djokovic did not face a single break point on his own serve while breaking Chardy's five times in all during the one-sided contest.

Djokovic said: "Chardy is a quality player. He won junior Wimbledon.
"He knows how to play on grass but I neutralised his serve and got a very crucial break in the first set.

The French Open finalist from earlier this month won 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (7-2) 2-6 6-1 6-2 on Court No 1.
Trailing by two sets to one, Ferrer suddenly found his range by breaking his opponent's serve twice in each of the last two sets.
Ferrer said: Ferrer said: "It was a really hard match, really tough.
"He's a very good player and it's never easy to beat him but I fought. I tried to focus in the bad moments and finally I could win."
The 31-year-old from Valencia, who is seeded to face Djokovic in the semi-finals, takes on world No 49 Croatian Ivan Dodig in round four.
