Two time Farmers Classic champion, Sam Querrey won himself a third semi-consecutive title in Los Angeles. What I mean by semi-consecutive is that Querrey missed the 2011 tournament with an elbow injury.
Querrey faced a small opponent from Lithuania, Ricardas Bernakis. The Lithuanian made his first ATP level final debut today, though the nerves got the best of him saying, “I was very nervous out there, especially with the crowd mostly supporting him [Querrey].”
Bernakis tried his best out there, though it was not nearly enough to overcome the big serves coming from the racquet of Sam Querrey. Querrey bomed in 8 aces in the 51 minute match.
This is Sam Querrey’s third title at the Farmers Classic, joining the likes of Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe, and Andre Agassi. Querrey now extends his winning streak at UCLA to 12 in a row, certainly nothing to bat an eye at.
Querrey seemed optimistic of his future on the ATP world tour in his post match press conference:
Sam Querrey will leave the Farmers Classic and head towards Washington D.C. on the next stop of the 2012 US Open Series. Querrey who lost in the second round of the 2010 D.C. tournament, will try to have a good run on the east coast.
