Querrey downs Berankis to win 3rd Farmers Classic|
Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Second-seeded American Sam Querrey cruised
to a 6-0, 6-2 win over Lithuanian qualifier Ricardas Berankis to reclaim the
Farmers Classic on Sunday.
The 24-year-old Querrey also won this event in 2009 and 2010, but missed last
year's tournament due to right elbow surgery.
"I feel like I always play well here," Querrey said. "I grew up kind of
playing around this area and I?m really comfortable out there on the courts.
It?s fun to play in front of my friends and family. It all came together this
week, and especially today."
He fired eight aces and won 5-of-7 break points in the match, which lasted
just 51 minutes.
The 22-year-old Berankis, ranked No. 141 in the world, defeated sixth-seeded
Marinko Matosevic of Australia 7-5, 6-1 in the semifinals to reach the final.
With the victory, Querrey took home $100,650.
