Djokovic lifts Serbia past U.S. in Davis Cup
BOISE, Idaho - Even an ankle injury couldn’t stop world No. 1 Novak Djokovic from dominating Sam Querrey 7-5, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-0 to give Serbia an insurmountable 3-1 lead in this Davis Cup quarterfinal at the Taco Bell Arena on Sunday.
At 1-1, 30-40 and a second breakpoint opportunity on Querrey’s serve, the world No. 1 twisted his right ankle off a forehand and fell to the ground.
Wincing in pain, Djokovic had to be helped courtside. But after having the ankle taped and taking anti-inflammatories, he continued to play. He broke serve on his third breakpoint in that third game. AP
