Court one at Wimbledon proved as a graveyard for the number one player Novak Djokovic in four sets. The match was a thriller with fortunes fluctuating and in the end Sam Querrey cornered the record books to achieve a more convincing win. This loss was particular because that the win over Sam would have continued his winning streak at the Grand Slams, an Open era record for 31 consecutive times and taken him equal to the record of Rod Laver. The score line clearly reveals the supremacy of Querrey as he bundled the Champion to submission after winning the fourth set tie breaker in style. Djokovic had won the past four major titles in a row and was half way to the first calendar year Grand Slam for men since the Australian left-hander Rod Laver in the year 1969. The third round match saw Sam serving 31 aces and that ultimately helped him to win two tie breaks and losing just a single game in the second set, which tilted the scales in his favour in the final analysis. Thus Djokovic was having no answer to Sam’s Querrey. The Champion player was decimated in the end and history is being created in a third round game. In the end it was game, set and match for Sam Querrey.
