QUIZ: Can you name the players to beat Novak Djokovic before the QF stage of a Grand Slam?

Beating Novak Djokovic at tennis is NOT easy. We know this. Beating him in Grand Slams is even harder. 

Not only is the world number one one of the best players tennis has ever seen, but also one of the most ruthless and efficient, meaning he really does not lose many matches you’d expect him to win.

In fact, only 14 players have defeated Novak Djokovic in Grand Slams before the quarterfinal stage, with the vast majority coming in his formative years.

So, can you name them? 45% is your benchmark for being better than average!

And yes… for the purposes of this quiz, being on court whilst Novak Djokovic accidentally gets himself defaulted does count as defeating him.

Good luck with this one in the meantime, and don’t forget to tweet us your scores @tennisbuzzblog.

(Note: If you’re having problems attempting the quiz, play it on the Sporcle website.)
