Djokovic extends 2011 win streak to 26

AP, Friday 29 Apr 2011

Novak Djokovic beat Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia 6-3, 6-2 in the quarterfinals of the Serbia Open Friday for his 26th consecutive victory in 2011.


With the win, Djokovic registered the best start to an ATP tour season since Ivan Lendl in 1986.

Djokovic has won 63 of 69 sets and four tournament titles in 2011 - including the Australian Open - and has unseated Roger Federer, the last man to beat him, for the No. 2 ranking.

Djokovic did not shine Friday, but the 85th-ranked Kavcic could not seriously threaten the Serb, who had one break in the first and three in the second set.
