Querrey and Nalbanbdian into Queen's semis

Querrey and Nalbanbdian into Queen's semis

Sam Querrey beat Ivan Dodig 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 while David Nalbandian had to win two matches today to advance the semifinals at the AEGOn Championships in London.

Querrey broke after Dodig double-faulted to lead 6-5 in the opening set and then held to seal it.
In the second set, a netted forehand at 4-3 earned Dodig the only break. In the final set, a forehand error at 3-2 left Querrey in charge.

"Tough match," Querrey said. "We both served very well so it was just a matter of a couple of points here and there. I'm proud of myself after losing the second set to come back strong in the third."

Querrey will face Marin Cilic, who advanced when Yen-hsun Lu retired due to groin pain during the second set.

Nalbandian twice rallied to beat Edouard Roger-Vasselin 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 in a third-round match postponed on Thursday, and then beating Xavier Malisse 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4.
