Taylor Fritz is officially an ATP champion. Saturday on the grass in Eastbourne, Fritz beat countryman Sam Querrey 6-3, 6-4 to win his first career ATP title.

“It’s so amazing. I almost can’t even believe it. I’m still trying to take it in,” Fritz said after winning the first all-American final of the year. “I’ve wanted to win a Tour title ever since I made the final of one when I was 18. It feels like I’ve just been waiting so long. I’m so happy.”

The 21-year-old Fritz only dropped won set and cruised in his last three matches beating Hubert Hukacz, Kyle Edmund and then his fellow-Californian Querrey who was returning from an ab injury which kept him out of the French.

“Incredibly tough. I had to play my absolute best today to win,” Fritz said. “This is Sam’s first tournament back in a long time, so a big congratulations to him for going all the way to the final after being injured and being out. He’s going to be extremely dangerous at Wimbledon, as he always is.”

It was Fritz’s second career final after Memphis back in 2016. Querrey, 31, was seeking his 11th title, first since 2017 Los Cabos.

Fritz will face former finalist Tomas Berdych at Wimbledon while Querrey collides with Dominic Thiem.
