Two-time tournament champion Sam Querrey cruised through his second-round match in a 6-2, 6-2 win over Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands on Wednesday evening at the Farmers Classic at UCLA’s L.A. Tennis Center.
Querrey, one of the pre-tournament favorites, needs two more victories to advance to the Farmers Classic championship match for the third time in four years. The Thousand Oaks resident missed the 2011 tournament while recovering from a right elbow injury.
“I feel great,” Querrey said. “Everything’s 100%. I’ve been feeling great on the practice court and playing great lately and it’s a great start to the week for me.”
Querrey said his Wimbledon appearance, which ended in the third round with a 7-6 (14), 6-4, 6-7 (9), 6-7 (10), 17-15 loss to Marin Cilic, built his confidence for the rest of the 2012 season.
