  • Querrey knows his US No. 1 status not gold-standard

    3/29/13 11:58 PM | Johan Lindahl
    Querrey knows his US No. 1 status not gold-standard It certainly wont be permanent status, but Sam Querrey believes he might as well enjoy the ride after becoming the US No. 1 player by default thanks to a slow collapse of friend John Isner, the former holder.

    Querrey holds a modest ranking of 20th on the ATP, so topping the American charts is barely boasting material, but he's doing better than Isner, who once stood in the top 10 but has now slid down to 23rd with little or no confidence and a noted dislike of playing overseas.

    Querrey is a home-lover as well and has been known to quit Paris after a French Open loss and travel all the way to California instead of remaining in Europe for the British grass season which starts within a week or so.

    Querrey is making the most of his top dog status before he slides down the slippery slope on the ATP list. "I feel like I earned it. But, I've said it a bunch: The goal is not to be the No. 1 American. I want to be one of the best players in the world.

    "Those other guys are right behind me trying to ask for it back. But I'd feel better if I was ranked higher with this No. 1. The previous No. 1 Americans, they have all, for the most part, hit the top 10.

    "But I feel like I'm just going to keep getting better and hopefully improving and hopefully I can hit the top 10 while being the No. 1 American."

No. he's gone back to playing for Germany. He became a US citizen 3 years ago, but changed back to playing for Germany because he wanted to get picked to play in the olympics. US already had their contingent, and the only alternative was to try to get on the German team.
