Really good match.

Querrey on the SP he had in the 2nd set though One of the worst misses on a big point you'll ever see!

Andy served well, but looked really toothless from the baseline. I can't predict much success at him here...

I actually thought Andy played quite well from the baseline

I'm still in pain thinking about that set point, let alone how Querrey must be feeling Enjoyable match though, some really wicked shotmaking alongside the big serves.

Querrey you idiot on SP

If one of Trump's racist domestic terrorist THUGS tries to stop you from voting, STAY in line, take their picture, call the police and call 1-866-OUR-VOTE. Spanish: 866-Ve-Y-Vota. Asian Languages: 866-API-Vote. Lawyers will be ready.

He moved well and didn't make that many UE's, but his hitting was really pretty weak...but I guess this is the level he can play these days...

That SP will give Sam some nightmares.

Pretty interesting match. I hope Duck is fit and plays WTFs.

Re: Basel R1: Roddick def. Querrey 7-5 7-6(6)

both guys served well. Difference in the match was andy's ability to put more balls in play and make less mistakes.

Sam needs a productive offseason to address his baseline game or his ranking will drop next year.

Yeah, it is likely that Querrey's ranking will drop next year, but maybe not by much. It depends whether he can clean up again in the '250s' and win some half-decent points at '500s.'

Unless he improves on his form from the second half of this season, he will struggle to be as dominant at the lower level (a little like Cilic), and is likely to lose his Memphis '500' title. However, the rest of his '500' results were terrible, so a few QFs would be useful.

His Slam performances haven't been bad, but, like Isner, he just can't get it together in the Masters events...too competitive for him. Unless he can go further in those (a couple of R3-QF), he will be capped at very bottom end of the top 20.

Querrey shouldn't have lost the 2nd set, that set point for him at 6:5 in the tie-break...

You look at his results this year, and you can say that his clutch ability to play the big points won him a fair share of matches. If it wasn't for a couple points here and there, his win-loss record would be drastically different. What I am trying to get at is, Sam better realize that he won't be a perennial top 20 player if he thinks he can pull off these tight 3, 5 setters every season. As time goes by, more and more people will read his game and make the proper adjustments. This offseason is the time to address that backhand, his volleys, and a stronger 2nd serve.

Otherwise, he's going to rely on clutch and luck again to survive tournaments. Those factors are also from confidence, he looks like he is missing that right now.
