  • Querrey faces Fish in all-American final at Queen’s Club

    6/13/10 2:04 AM | Kelli DeMario
    Querrey faces Fish in all-American final at Queen’s Club For the first time since 1994, the AEGON Championships final will feature two Americans battling for the right to hold the trophy, as seventh seed Sam Querrey meets unseeded compatriot Mardy Fish on Sunday.

    World No. 23 Sam Querrey will be looking to level the head-to-head series with Mardy Fish Sunday afternoon, as the countrymen battle for the Queen’s Club title. Querrey trails Fish 0-1, having lost their only previous meeting at the 2007 tournament in Los Angeles.

    Seventh seed Querrey advanced to the championship after rallying to defeat veteran Rainer Schuettler in the semifinal, 6-7(9), 7-5, 6-3. The 22-year-old had not dropped a set before the match, as he dismissed early-round opponents Robby Ginepri, Marcel Granollers and Xavier Malisse all in straight sets.

    Querrey is bidding for his third ATP World Tour title of the year, bringing his career tally to five. Sunday’s appearance signals the season's fourth championship berth for the California native, who put together successful runs in Memphis (def. Isner), Houston (lost to Chela) and Belgrade (def. Isner). Querrey holds a 0-1 record in grass-court finals, having fallen to fellow American Rajeev Ram in the 2009 Newport championship.

    World No. 90 Mardy Fish eased into the final on Saturday, following his straight-set win over 8th seed Feliciano Lopez. The 28-year-old American made his first final of the season with victories over Somdev Devvarman, 13th seed Santiago Giraldo, defending champion Andy Murray and 12th seed Michael Llodra.

    Fish, through to his first championship match since Delray Beach 2009, will attempt to pocket his fourth-career ATP World Tour title. The Tampa resident is 3-10 in finals, which includes a 2003 loss to Greg Rusedski on grass in Nottingham.

    Prediction: The quicker surface will allow for very few service breaks on Sunday. Fish looks to have the momentum going in, but it should be close. The younger American for the win in three sets.
