• Querrey opens Queen's Club title defense in style

    Querrey opens Queen's Club title defense in style Sam Querrey, who won the AEGON Championships last year, dismisses Kei Nishikori in straight sets on Monday. Querrey is joined in the second round by Michael Berrer, a three-set winner over Ryan Harrison.

    (13) Sam Querrey d. Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-4

    Querrey kicked off his title defense at the AEGON Champions by defeating Nishikori in one hour and 16 minutes on Monday afternoon. The 6'6'' American fired 10 aces without double-faulting and he saved all seven of the break points he faced. Break-point conversions were the difference in a competitive first set, as Nishikori converted none and Querrey seized his only opportunity.

    With momentum in hand, Querrey had an easier time of things in the second despite the closer scoreline. This week's No. 13 seed dropped a mere four points in five service games and again one break was enough for him to serve out the proceedings. Next up for Querrey is Rainer Schuettler, a double-breadstick winner over Bobby Reynolds.

    Michael Berrer d. (WC) Ryan Harrison 7-6(7), 2-6, 7-5

    Berrer did not break serve a single time before the final game of the match but he had just enough to outlast Harrison after two hours and 22 minutes of play during first-round action at Queen's Club. This one was tense right from the start, as Berrer saved one break point and Harrison fought off six en route to a first-set tiebreaker. The 79th-ranked German pulled out the decider nine points to seven, but he seemed to gear up for a third set after donating an early break in the second.

    A tight third set saw both men hold without too much trouble on the way to a 5-5 deadlock. Berrer held to put himself one game away from victory, and that's when Harrison cracked. Serving to stay in the match and having not been broken the entire day, the 19-year-old American dropped serve at love out of nowhere to bring an abrupt halt what had been a spirited clash. Berrer won only 42 percent of his second-serve points and won fewer total points (114-111) but he advances to a meeting with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
