London, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Top-seeded former winner Novak Djokovic, who survived an injury scare, and defending champion Andy Murray highlighted Friday's third-round winners at Wimbledon.
The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed despite being No. 2 in the world rankings, beat Frenchman Gilles Simon 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 on Centre Court.
Leading 3-2 in the third set and with Simon serving, Djokovic slipped while going for a forehand shot and fell hard to the grass. The Serbian was in obvious pain as he grabbed his upper left arm.
Djokovic received medical treatment to his left shoulder before finishing out the match.
The 27-year-old Djokovic, who's coached by three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker, won his title in 2011.
