Tennis: Djokovic's bid for ATP history ends in Cincinnati
MASON, Ohio (AP) - Novak Djokovic dumped another pressure-packed shot into the net and stood in place for a moment, stunned by another upset in Cincinnati.
It's the only place where he can't win.
Top-ranked American John Isner ended Djokovic's attempt to make ATP history on Friday, beating the No. 1 player 7-6 (5), 3-6, 7-5 in the quarterfinals at the Western & Southern Open.
Djokovic has never won in Cincinnati, the only Masters event that has eluded him during his career. He has lost in the finals four times, including last year to Roger Federer. All he needs to do is hoist the winner's trophy one time in Cincinnati to become the first player to win all nine Masters events.
