Top seed Novak Djokovic made quick work of Tennys Sandgren at the Western and Southern Open on Tuesday, never dropping serve en route to a 6-2 6-4 win over the American, while big-serving Milos Raonic enjoyed a straight sets win over Andy Murray.
Djokovic broke Sandgren three times to reach the quarterfinals and extended his win-loss record to 20-0 this year.
"All in all it was just a great performance," said the Serb.
"I felt better and I played better than I did last night. Everything is going in the right direction."

Murray had an impressive win over fifth seed Alexander Zverev on Monday but never found his rhythm against Raonic.
The Canadian dominated on serve, firing 10 aces and winning almost 90% of his first-serve points, to advance to the quarterfinals 6-2 6-2 in a rain-interrupted match that marked his first win over the Briton since 2014 at Indian Wells.
Defending champion Daniil Medvedev looked sharp in his stress-free 6-3 6-3 dismantling of qualifier Aljaz Bedene to reach the quarterfinals.
The Russian did not face a break point and committed just nine unforced errors in the 68-minute contest in hot and humid conditions.
