The Serbian had to save five match points before edging past Florent Serra in his last outing, but had no such worries as he romped to a 6-6 6-4 success over the seventh seed in one hour six minutes.
World number four Djokovic is now the only seed left in the tournament.
The Austrian’s serve let him down badly as he got just 47% of his first serves in – compared to his opponent’s 76% – which left him in no position to trouble the second seed.
Djokovic broke four times, dropping his own serve once, to claim victory.
Other quarter-final winners were Phillip Kohlschreiber, Tommy Haas and Olivier Rochus.
Kohlschreiber defeated Andreas Beck 3-6 6-3 6-3, Haas saw off Mischa Zverev 7-6 (7/5) 6-2 and Rochus fought back to beat Benjamin Becker 6-7 (4/7) 6-3 6-3.
