At the start of the 2nd set Querrey fended off a rest point and was at 2-1 when successive Djokovic errors managed to get 3-1 towards the American. Rain was considered to be in route, also it appeared there was a time way too short for Querrey to nail the 2-set lead – but he did, as Djokovic’s mind appeared to become elsewhere. Happens is placed for any fascinating second act for this match when play resumes on Saturday.
At 5-5, effective attacking play put Querrey within the driving seat, so when Djokovic couldn’t cope with a drop shot it introduced up three break points. All passed, plus a 4th, as Querrey erred just when chance beckoned. Within the tie-break a pass lower the road had Djokovic collapsing around the turf to have an early small-break. The Serb saved two set suggests level for six-6, however created a serve short and Querrey came galloping directly into earn another chance. This time around he ran Djokovic all around the court to transform.
