Novak Djokovic failed to reach a Slam quarterfinal for the first time in seven years, as American Sam Querrey knocked off the world #1 today at Wimbledon 7-6, 6-1, 3-6, 7-6. Querrey, the 41st-ranked player in the world, reached only his fourth-ever Slam round of 16.
Poor Jack Sock. The tennis gladiator named after the bravest piece of laundry in the mid-hamper has succumbed to Nicolás Almagro in the third round of the US Open. Sock's sacking was hardly surprising. After all, Almagro was the tournament's 11-seed. Sock, meanwhile, was unseeded. No shame there.
