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.

NEW YORK - Roger Federer, owner of 17 Grand Slam titles, the most in history, opened his U.S. Open on Tuesday with a sloppy win over Grega Zemlja 6-3, 6-2, 7-5. Federer had originally been scheduled to play Monday night but rain postponed the match. Two American men also made it into the second round. The 6-foot-9 John Isner and Sam Querrey, who used to live in Thousand Oaks, both moved on. Isner, seeded 13th, beat Filippo Volandri 6-0, 6-2, 6-3 and made it look easy. Querrey, the 26th seed, struggled before downing Guido Pella 7-6 (3)

Novak Djokovic finished off a day of long matches and an extended schedule Wednesday in the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament with a straight-set victory over American Sam Querrey. Djokovic, the Serb who is the No. 1 men's player in the world, defeated Querrey, 6-0, 7-6 (6). The match had been scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, but because of long matches preceeding it, the fourth-round match actually began at 12:23 a.m. Thursday. It ended at 1:50 a.m., on a day when straight-set victories were rare.

Sam Querrey smashed a couple of rackets, called himself "Debbie Downer," bungled a bunch of points in the second set and generally, he said, wanted to leave his job Friday afternoon, maybe sneak out early, get away from his mistimed serves, his out-of-whack forehand, his muddled head. Instead Querrey will have to come back to work Saturday and continue his job of defending a tennis title. Querrey, seeded second at the Farmers Classic tournament at the Los Angeles Tennis Center, overcame all his mistakes and beat Rainer Schuettler of Germany, 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (4)

Sam Querrey survived a match point as he rallied to beat John Isner , 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4, in an all-American final Sunday in the Serbia Open at Belgrade. The second-seeded Isner wasted a match point in the second set while serving and leading, 5-3. His powerful first serve seemed to desert him in the crucial moments as Querrey converted a break point with a forehand passing shot. The third-seeded Querrey then converted his fifth break point in the ninth game of the third set before serving out the match for the fourth ATP tour title of his career, and his first on clay.

The tennis was compelling if not always technically perfect. There were wild swings of quality and of mood between defending champion and second-seeded Sam Querrey and sixth-seeded Janko Tipsarevic in the semifinals of the Farmers Classic on Saturday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. When Tipsarevic jumped way ahead in the second-set tiebreak, Querrey suddenly decided to pack a punch in his forehand. When Querrey roared from behind to win that set, Tipsarevic responded with a stylish service break to start the third.

Sam Querrey will pursue his third Farmers Classic title in four years when he plays his opening match Wednesday at UCLA's L.A. Tennis Center. The 6-foot-6 serve-and-forehand specialist from Thousand Oaks, seeded second in the tournament, is ranked 55th by the ATP following a comeback from right elbow surgery last year. Querrey, 24, earlier this month participated in World Team Tennis following a semifinal finish in the pre-Wimbledon tournament at Queen's Club in London, and a grueling 5-hour 31-minute loss to Croatia's Marin Cilic in the third round at Wimbledon.

When Sam Querrey opted to play professional tennis rather than accept a scholarship at USC in 2006, he didn't give up summer break. The 22-year-old Querrey, who begins doubles play with James Blake on Tuesday at the Farmers Classic at UCLA, last played at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships on July 8. In between, Querrey set aside plenty of time to relax at his Santa Monica home. "A lot of my friends come to stay at my house; we'll go to the ocean, cook barbecue at my house, go to the movies.

For a while Tuesday, the No. 1 men's tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic, didn't play up to his rating and the No. 31 player, Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria, played well above his. But, as so often happens in big tournaments such as the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, form returns. Djokovic's did late in the first set, after trailing, 4-1 and 5-2. That was helped by several key double faults by Dimitrov, which became gift wrapping in a 7-6 (4), 6-1 victory by Djokovic. That marked 15 consecutive victories to start the year for the Serbian star, who won his third straight Australian Open in January and has won six Grand Slam event titles, including five in the last nine majors.

Game On Dude overpowered three rivals to successfully defend his title in the $200,000 San Antonio Stakes by 6 1/2 lengths at Santa Anita on Sunday. Ridden by Hall of Fame member Mike Smith, Game On Dude ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:47.53 and paid $2.10 and $2.10 at 1-9 odds. Trained by Hall of Fame member Bob Baffert, Game On Dude is co-owned by retired Dodgers manager Joe Torre, who was on hand. Game On Dude broke sharply and was immediately engaged by 12-1 longshot Basmati. "I got pressured, even more so than if it was a full field, believe it or not," Smith said.

Andre Agassi is playing tennis again. The winner of eight Grand Slam events has been retired since 2006, but he will compete against John McEnroe, Michael Chang and Jim Courier in Friday night's Acura Champions Cup at Honda Center. Agassi, 42, earned more than $30 million in his career, racking up the major victories between 1992 (Wimbledon) and 2003 (his fourth Australian Open). Residing in Las Vegas with his wife, tennis legend Steffi Graf, and their two children, Agassi has his hand in a number of charitable endeavors, such as his Andre Agassi Foundation for Education, Athletes for Hope and a charter school in Las Vegas, along with business and public speaking interests.

Bob Kramer spoke of the loss he is about to suffer, admitting he has a hole in his heart. He wasn't grieving a child or a parent, just a best friend. Kramer is director of a tennis tournament that will be no more. The Los Angeles men's tennis event that has been held each summer at UCLA since 1984 will be held next summer in Bogota, Colombia. That's a pretty long commute for loyal fans and ticket buyers around Westwood. For Kramer, and his sanctioning Southern California Tennis Assn., this is much more than just a business sale.

The Nets' regular-season debut in Brooklyn will have to wait. The New York City Marathon, however, is good to go. With mass transportation still crippled in the aftermath of the super storm Sandy, New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg asked the NBA to postpone Thursday's opener between the Knicks and Nets at the Barclays Center, and the league agreed. "It's a great stadium, it would have been a great game, but the bottom line is: There is not a lot of mass transit. Our police have plenty of other things to do," Bloomberg said at a news conference Wednesday.

That last forehand Sam Querrey hit, a winner from deep behind the baseline, the one that touched every line, it seemed, came just in time. It was getting dark again at the All England Club, well past 9 p.m., and a tall, gangly American was deep into a fifth set with no tiebreaker to save him and Mohamed Lahyani in the chair, possibly crossing his legs uncomfortably. Lahyani, after all, was the umpire who supervised the 11-hour, 5-minute, three-day marathon won, 70-68, in the fifth set by John Isner over Nicolas Mahut in the first round, and there he was again as Querrey and Xavier Malisse of Belgium stood tied, 7-7, in the fifth set. But Querrey, the 22-year-old from Santa Monica who is seeded 18th, put on some blinders, kicked his game into a higher power mode and finished off Malisse before play was stopped Saturday, advancing to the fourth round of Wimbledon with a 6-7 (4)
