Holy Guacamole, Querrey Wins 2nd Mexico Title of 2017

Mexico has been very, very good to American Sam Querrey in 2017.
Querrey won the Saturday final at the Abierto Mexicano de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex in Los Cabos, Mexico, defeating surprise wild card finalist Thanasi Kokkinakis 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 for his second title of the year.

The American also won the Acapulco title earlier in the year, beating Rafael Nadal.

“This tournament only keeps getting better, so I’m already excited to come back next year,” said Querrey. “I think the last couple of months have been the best I’ve played and if I can keep this going the rest of the year, it’ll be my best year on tour yet.”

It’s the first time he’s won more than one title in a year since 2010 when he captured four.

The 21-year-old oft-injured Kokkinakis was appearing in his first career ATP final.

“I definitely thought I could have done better, but I have to look at the positives in that this is my best week on tour,” he said. “Hopefully this is just a small step. The good news is that I have a lot of things to work on and I’m still having tight matches with some of the best players in the world.”

With the result the Aussie will almost cut his ranking in half to No. 225.

The 29-year-old Querrey improved to 10-7 in career finals.

Great for him! Regardless of ranking, he is the best US tennis player at the moment.

RZ Says:

Sam completes the sweep of tournaments in Mexico!
And how great to see 4K in a final! Hopefully the US Open will give him a wild card (if he’s not using a protected ranking to get in)

FedExpress Says:

Considering where Kokk, Kachanox etc are atm and where Zverev is atm, one has to accept that Zverev is something rare and special compared to the other NexGens.

Way more special than Dimitrov,Nishikori and Raonic in my eyes.

SG1 Says:

Querrey is a very likeable guy. Maybe he’s a bit of a late bloomer and can carry the US torch for the next few years.

SG1 Says:

Winning tournaments. Playing well at Wimbledon the last couple of times. He seems to have figured some stuff out.
