Novak Djokovic finished off a day of long matches and an extended schedule Wednesday in the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament with a straight-set victory over American Sam Querrey.
Djokovic, the Serb who is the No. 1 men’s player in the world, defeated Querrey, 6-0, 7-6 (6).
The match had been scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, but because of long matches preceeding it, the fourth-round match actually began at 12:23 a.m. Thursday. It ended at 1:50 a.m., on a day when straight-set victories were rare.
