American Sam Querrey advances to Wimbledon's fourth round
LONDON (Monday, July 10, 2017) -- American Sam Querrey defeated 12th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in a 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-5 victory to earn a spot in the fourth round of Wimbledon for the second consecutive year.
Querrey finished off the match this morning after play was suspended last night, when darkness stopped Querrey and Tsonga’s match as the American led 6-5 in the fifth set. He only needed one game to finish the match, earning eight points in less than five minutes of play. He’ll next face tournament No. 1 seed Andy Murray on Wednesday, July 12 at 3:30 a.m. PT.
Querrey defeated world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in four sets in the same round of Wimbledon last year, making for one of his best Grand Slam performances in his career. Earlier this year, he defeated Rafael Nadal in the ATP 500 Series final in Acapulco, Mexico.
Querrey, who trains regularly at StubHub Center, won USTA’s International Springs Championships at StubHub Center at the age of 17.
