Querrey upsets Djokovic in Paris

Sam Querrey of the United States upset top-ranked Novak Djokovic

0-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4 in the second round of the Paris Masters on


It was the first time since the Miami Masters in March 2010 that

Djokovic has been eliminated so early in a tournament.

Djokovic entered the court wearing a Darth Vader mask on

Halloween and put on a show by winning the first set in just 21

minutes. But Djokovic started to waver under the relentless

accuracy of Querrey’s serve and made too many unforced errors the

rest of the way.

Querrey had 18 aces and converted his second match point when

Djokovic’s return sailed long.

Djokovic had already secured the year-end No. 1 ranking after

defending champion Roger Federer pulled out.
