Belgrade: Novak Djokovic won his 26th straight match to remain unbeaten in 2011, defeating Slovenia's Blaz Kavcic 6-3, 6-2 on Friday in the Serbia Open quarter finals. This is the best start to an ATP tour season since Ivan Lendl in 1986.
This was a victory, however, that almost didn't happen. While ahead 4-1 in the second set, Djokovic threatened to quit because he said the lines became too slippery once it started raining.
"I don't want to play, I don't want to get injured," Djokovic shouted at the chair umpire, leaving the court and taking a seat.
