But there was concern in the Serb's camp when the former world No.1 sought a medical timeout early in the second set for treatment to his lower back.

The six-time Australian Open victor received a medical treatment in the second set for an injury but came back strong to close out the match in two hours, 23 minutes.

Still, he was back on court to take the next two 6-3 6-3 and will now face Hyeon Chung, who beat Alex Zverev, in the fourth round. I deal with it.

The 30-year-old said he wouldn't be getting ahead of himself despite his impressive performance. "Obviously for me it's taking it one match at a time but I have to be more humble with my expectations as I haven't played in the last six months".

Djokovic was cagey when asked about the medical time-out after booking an 11th fourth-round appearance at Melbourne Park. "But I am very pleased where my game is at". So, the re-match may say a lot about the trajectories of both players.

Chung showed another sign of his promise by coolly closing out a five-set win over German fourth seed Alexander Zverev, a player many pundits have widely tipped as a future grand slam victor.

The German is a player many pundits have widely tipped as a future Grand Slam victor. I'm looking forward to the next challenge. He's fit. He doesn't have too many holes in his game. You can see he's a hard worker.

He continued to hobble and stretch his left leg following the treatment but fought off four break points for Vinolas-Ramos at 4-2 in the second set to maintain his advantage, after which the match always looked to be going in Djokovic's favour. "So let's see what happens".
