    Sam Querrey of the U.S celebrates after beating Novak Djokovic of Serbia in their men's singles match on day six of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London, on July 2, 2016.

    Novak Djokovic's 30-match Grand Slam winning streak is over after a stunning 7-6 (6), 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 (5) loss to 41st-ranked Sam Querrey in Wimbledon's third round.

    Djokovic had won the past four major titles in a row — and was halfway to the first calendar-year Grand Slam for a man since Rod Laver's in 1969.

    The match ended Saturday, when it was interrupted by three rain delays.

    They began playing Friday, when Querrey grabbed a two-set lead before play was suspended by showers.

    When they resumed Saturday, two-time defending Wimbledon champion Djokovic quickly took a 5-0 lead en route to winning the third set, and then he served for the fourth at 5-4. But he was broken there, and they headed to a tiebreaker. The match closed on a forehand error by Djokovic.
