Novak Djokovic’s Grand Slam bid is over.

American Sam Querrey pulled off a stunning upset over the world No. 1 in Wimbledon’s third round.

In a match that took several twists and turns, featured two tiebreaks and stretched over two days, Querrey, the tournament’s 28th seed, held his nerve long enough to come out on top 7-6(6), 6-1, 3-6, 7-6(5).

“[Querrey] played a terrific match,” Djokovic said in his post-match news conference. “He served great, as he usually does … He just overpowered me.”

When the match began Friday, Djokovic looked far from the player who has dominated the pro tennis circuit of late. Querrey edged him out in a first-set tiebreak, and then steamrolled to a 6-1 win in the following set.

Down two sets to love, Djokovic got a reprieve as the rain came falling down on Court No. 1, halting the match for the night.

With a night to rest and regroup, Djokovic looked refreshed when he came out to the court Saturday, earning a 6-3 win in the third set.

The fourth set was a tense affair, with each side desperately trying to earn a break. Djokovic finally broke Querrey in the ninth game, but the 28-year-old from San Francisco broke right back and the set went to a tiebreak. Querrey’s stellar serve, which helped him to 31 aces, prevailed in the fourth-set breaker and the defending champion was sent home.
