Chela Beats Querrey, Wawrinka Claims ATP Title
“Every one of his service games in the second set was deuce, break point, ad-in, and I was just babying the ball around too often,” Querrey said. “I need to step up and take chances. You can work that in practice all you want, but it’s not the same. You’ve got to tell yourself I’m going to do it in a match. I’m just scared to do it. You can’t be scared to go out there and do that. If I play like this, I’m going to win the occasional [ATP World Tour] 250 and final and win some rounds at a Masters , but I’m not going to get to that next level where I want to be playing like that. I need to step up and take more chances.”
