Daviscup.com: April 7, 2013 Boise, Idaho -  A run of nine consecutive games by Novak Djokovic saw him close out Sam Querrey and in doing so secured Serbia a place in the semifinals of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group. In two hours 35 minutes the world No.1 finished things in blistering fashion and scored a 7-5 6-7 6-1 6-0 victory, giving Serbia an unassailable 3-1 lead over the USA. The final rubber was not played. It was a dramatic start to the match as Djokovic dropped to the court on his knees in the third game of the match. Querrey was serving and at 30-40 when Djokovic lifted off the ground to play a forehand, when he came back down his right ankle turned in an angle it was not meant to. The replays on television were very much cringe and “agony” viewing.
