Even by his own lofty standards, Novak Djokovic put in a Wimbledon performance that was close to perfect. The top-ranked Serb played near-flawless tennis to reach the fourth round of the grass-court Grand Slam, going close to a full match without making an unforced error in dispatching Jeremy Chardy of France 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.
Serena Williams wasn't bad either, giving a lop-sided schooling to the oldest woman in the tournament. Williams recorded her 600th career win, brushing aside 42-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm 6-2, 6-0 in an evening match that was moved to Centre Court so it could be played under the lights with the roof closed.
In the other matches, Britain's Laura Robson progressed as did China's Li Na while in the men's singles matches, Tomas Berdych, David Ferrer and Tommy Haas were among the winners in the third round.
