Houston F - Chela d. Querrey 57 64 63

Tight match but Sam's play was dropping off as it wore on, got sloppy at the end of the second and start of the third.

He started to try to hit every single forehand at 100mph and shockingly, started to miss a bunch.

Brainless final set from him, he broke immediately but dumped serve right after and thereafter was in trouble behind serve all the way, saving break points in the next two service games before being broken to love in game 8. Chela comfortably served it out as Sam just tried to blast forehands. Stupid end to the match from him.

Well done to Chela though, a long time since he was in the winners circle.

Spectacularly bad last set after being up a break, just amazing Sam
Seems he is in really bad shape to be tired out so easily in a best of three match. Oh well.
Congrats JIC, fully deserved.
JMG is beating off to this result as we speak.

Top stuff, J-I.

Made life difficult for himself by dropping the opening set, but you felt that if he could keep Querrey out there long enough he would get a chance to turn it around. Couldn't watch the match, but it sounds like Querrey's level dropped in the 3rd set (certainly mentally), most probably feeling it after the long match with Odesnik yesterday.

Chela now needs barely 100pts over the remainder of the season to seal a year-end top 100 finish...assuming he stays fit that is a formality. It will be interesting to see how much higher he can go (I'd estimate on the boundary of top 50).

Chela is some 6 victories away from place in Top 10 active players with most clay court wins

Absolutely ridiculous display from Sam. He seemed so pissed off about losing the second set that he couldn't concentrate for shit in the third. He gave this one away. He's lost so many finals now that he should have won

Having said that, I wanted Juan to win anyway so I'm absolutely loving this result. With his injury troubles, he hadn't really done anything since blowing mps to Djokovic in 07. Almost back into the top 50 now!
