Novak Djokovic booked his place in the Miami Open quarter-finals where he will face Tomas Berdych after brushing aside Dominic Thiem in a comfortable 6-3 6-4 victory. 

Djokovic is making serene progress while a host of of other top seeds have either been knocked out or withdrawn from the Masters tournament, including Andy Murray who was dumped out in the third round. 

Thiem, seeded 14 for this event, has enjoyed an electric start to the 2016 season but was unable to convert any of his 14 break points.

The world No.1 will meet Berdych in the last 8 after the Czech saw off Richard Gasquet in three sets, winning 6-4 3-6 7-5.

Kei Nishikori, seeded sixth, is the second highest seed left in the tournament behind Djokovic after he eased past Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2 6-4.

There was an enthralling encounter between Gael Monfils and Andy Murray’s conqueror Grigor Dimitrov which Monfils prevailed 6-7 (7/5) 6-3 6-3 while Milos Raonic had it much easier, beating Damir Dzumhur 6-0 6-3.

David Goffin beat Horacio Zeballos 7-5 6-3, Gilles Simon conceded just one game in a 6-0 6-1 hammering of compatriot Lucas Pouille and Nick Kyrgios saw off Andrey Kuznetsov 7-6 (7/3) 6-3 but not before getting in a customary argument with the umpire.

There was a quiet day in the women’s event, with just two games as the quarter-finals got under way.

Timea Bacsinszky emerged past fifth-seed Simona Halep 4-6 6-3 6-2 while Svetlana Kuznetsova built on her impressive win over Serena Williams, claiming a 6-7 (7/3) 6-4 6-3 victory over Ekaterina Makarova.
