World No. 1 Novak Djokovic clinched the Davis Cup quarter-final tie for Serbia against the USA on Sunday, defeating Sam Querrey 7-5, 6-7(4), 6-1, 6-0.

Having suffered an ankle injury in the first set, Djokovic pushed on, saving six of the seven break points he faced. In the final set, Djokovic won 25 of 32 points to claim victory in two hours and 35 minutes.

“I am happy I managed to play the whole match,” said Djokovic. “I played really well in the third and fourth sets. I am sorry for team USA but it was a thrilling weekend for all of us.”

The 25-year-old Djokovic improved to 6-1 against Querrey and notched his second win over the American this year, adding to his fourth-round victory at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. Serbia topped the USA for the second time in four years, following its first-round win three years ago in Belgrade.

The 6’ 5’’ Raonic unleashed 35 aces and lost serve just once. He broke Seppi for the third time in the final game of the encounter to seal the win in two hours and 24 minutes. This was the pair’s first meeting.

Raonic improved his singles record in Davis Cup competition to a 9-3 mark. The 22 year old has won all four his rubbers this year, claiming 12 of the 14 sets he’s played.
