Novak Djokovic lost 0-6 7-6 6-4 to Sam Querrey in the second round of the Paris Masters.

Djokovic breezed through the opening set and had a 2-0 lead in the second set when momentum turn around.

Querrey found his powerful serve and forehand and started to complicate the Serb getting the break back in the second set and then winning it in a tie breaker.

The American broke early in the decider and saved five break points in the ninth game on his way to victory.

"Great tennis at the start but I knew that the main problem today will be the continuity of my energy," Djokovic said.

"Unfortunately, it wasn't to be after the second set. And during the second set I already felt that physically I'm down and I struggled every game."

Sweeting topples Querrey in Houston

Sweeting topples Querrey in Houston

Ryan Sweeting upset Sam Querrey 3-6, 7-6, 6-3 in the second round of the ATP's US Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston.

Sweeting saved 18 of 24 break points he faced to book his place in the quarter-finals where he will play against Teymuraz Gabashvili, a 7-6, 6-3 winner over Grigor Dimitrov.

The two traded breaks in one span of seven straight games—including the last five games of the second set through the first two games of the third.

"Overall I was happy with the way I played," Sweeting said. "I started off really slow and he broke me in the first game and served really well.

"I was standing way back on his serves and had no chance to break him. I knew I had to do something so in the second set I started stepping in on his second serve and returned pretty well.

"Then, I couldn't serve."

Querrey admitted that he had yet to find his feet on clay.

"I just don't feel comfortable on clay yet," he said. "I need to just put a couple of weeks of practice in there and get ready for the next tournament."

Sam Querrey out of US vs Chile Davis Cup tie

Sam Querrey out of US vs Chile Davis Cup tie

Sam Querrey will miss the United States’ first-round Davis Cup matches against Chile because of a right rotator cuff injury.

U.S. captain Jim Courier said that Querrey had an MRI last week on his shoulder and was told by doctors to rest.

"Sam has been having trouble with his right shoulder and he got an MRI on Friday that revealed a slight impingement in his rotator cuff," Courier said.

"Doctors have advised him to rest so we thought it was best that he not make the trip to Santiago and get ready for (ATP events in) Indian Wells and Miami."

No. 8 Andy Roddick, No. 32 John Isner and the top-ranked doubles team of twins Bob and Mike Bryan will represent the U.S. against Chile on an outdoor clay court at Santiago from Friday through Sunday.

Sweeting upsets Querrey at Delray Beach

Sweeting upsets Querrey at Delray Beach

Sam Querrey was upset by Ryan Sweeting 7-6 6-4 in the second round of the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

Sweeting rebounded from 0-40 to win the match on his second match point. He also had a match point on Querrey’s serve in the ninth game.

In the final point, the umpire called Sweeting’s first serve a let, which was supported by the on-court service machine. If it didn’t nick the net it would clearly have been an untouchable ace.

Querrey decided to give the ace to Sweeting.

“I started off well, luckily,” said the 118th-ranked Sweeting. “I got up a break, and then the wind really started to swirl. Balls that I thought were coming into me just stopped in mid-air. I hit a lot of frames and couldn’t really find the court, so I had to take care of my serve. It’s never fun playing windy matches like that. You just have to play meat-and-potatoes tennis, and not do anything special.”

Querrey admitted he’d been struggling with pain in his right shoulder. “I was just trying to hang in there,” he said. “I was hitting my first serve around about 100 [miles per hour], which makes it tough.”
