American Sam Querrey continued his tremendous run in Los Angeles with third title victory on Sunday. Sam Querrey has not lost a singles match in the Farmers Classic since 2007. Querrey won his third title after beating first-time finalist Ricardas Berankis in straight sets with a 6-0, 6-2 scoreline. With this victory, the American extended his winning streak to 13 matches in this tournament.
“I feel like I always play well here,” said Querrey. “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.” Querrey improved to a 7-5 mark in ATP World Tour finals and to an 18-15 year record.
“I’m hoping I can just keep this up and play well the entire summer and keep going,” Querrey said. “I’ve got Washington D.C. next week, so I’m just trying to continue to ride the train and hopefully play well all the way through the US Open. I’d love to be seeded at the Open, that’s one of my goals. I’m going to be pretty close after this week so hopefully with a few more good weeks I can make it into the Top 32 and be seeded there. And I’d love to get back into the Top 20, where I was a year-and-a-half ago, so that’s my big goal right now.”
On the other hand, Berankis, the first Lithuanian-born player to reach an ATP World Tour final, asserted after the match, “My nerves were playing me in the first set, that’s for sure. I didn’t play as I would like to play. But in the second set, a couple games here and there, I loosened up a little bit. The crowd helped me very much to relax because of the support I got here; I really wasn't thinking there would be this kind of big support for me. Even though I was nervous, I enjoyed my first ATP final, and I’m looking very much forward to another tournament.”
