Querrey, Sandgren Dig Deep At Wimbledon

Fognini fails to convert four set point in second-set tie-break

Sam Querrey dug deep and drew upon his greater grass-court experience on Saturday at The Championships, Wimbledon.

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 committed just 18 unforced errors in a 6-3, 7-6(12), 6-3 win over Italy’s Fabio Fognini, the No. 12 seed and won of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters in April.

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.
