    Querrey captures Queen’s Club crown Seventh seed Sam Querrey won his third ATP World Tour title of the season at the AEGON Championships, after recording a straight-sets victory over unseeded compatriot Mardy Fish.

    World No. 23 Sam Querrey held 11 of 12 service games en route to a 7-6(3), 7-5 championship win over World No. 90 Mardy Fish Sunday afternoon. The 22-year-old became the first American player to hoist the Queen’s Club trophy since 1994, when Todd Martin dismissed then-World No. 1 Pete Sampras. Querrey earned his fifth career-title and third of the season, adding to previous successes in Memphis and Belgrade. The seventh seed, improving his 2010 record to 25-13, is the only competitor to have collected three titles on three different surfaces this season.

    Querrey started the match slowly, forced to save triple break-point in his opening service game. A tight first set contained no service breaks for either player. The World No. 23 took a 3-0 edge in the tie-break, bolstered by a mix of forceful ground-strokes and solid play at the net. Fish fought back, winning three consecutive points. After reaching 3-3, a careless backhand into the net cost the World No. 90 another mini-break. Triple set-point came at 6-3 for Querrey, who completed the set as Fish missed a return of serve.

    Fish regrouped to snag a 3-2 lead in the second set, as Querrey pushed a forehand long. The 28-year-old looked to level the match, serving at 5-4. Fish failed to close, missing a host first serves and committing four unforced errors. Querrey went on to collect triple championship-point in the 12th game. The World No. 23 sealed the victory, crushing a well-timed backhand pass that forced Fish into a volley error.

    Querrey finished the 84-minute match with 15 aces and 85% of his first-service points won.
