Querrey, Sandgren Dig Deep At Wimbledon
Fognini fails to convert four set point in second-set tie-break
The American booked his place in the Wimbledon Last 16 for the fourth time with a hard-fought 7-6(3), 7-6(10), 6-3 victory over John Millman of Australia in one hour and 57 minutes on Court 17. He’ll next play compatriot Tennys Sandgren on Monday.
Querrey recovered from 1-3 down in the first set, but saved two set points at 5/6 and 7/8 in the second-set tie-break, courtesy of groundstroke errors from Millman. Forehand errors cost Millman in the third set with Querrey breaking serve at 3-3 and in the ninth game.
The 31-year-old Querrey, lost 10 points on first serve and hit 52 winners — including 27 aces. He advanced to last week’s Nature Valley International final (l. to Fritz).
Sandgren, who is competing at the All England Club for the second year, saved four set points in the second-set tie-break (6/7, 7/8, 8/9 and 10/11) en route to the fourth round for the first time.
