Sam Querrey wins Farmers Classic title

Sam Querrey wins Farmers Classic title

Sam Querrey crushed Ricardas Berankis 6-0, 6-2 to win the 2012 Farmers Classic title in Los Angeles.

"I feel like I've always played well here and it all came together this week and especially today," said Querrey. "I was just trying to focus on my game, my serve and forehand, and see if he could beat that."

Querrey won 24 of 33 points in the opening set while Berankis had trouble keeping the ball on the court.

Sam, who won this event also in 2009 and 2010, went up 3-0 in the second set and never looked back.

The American needed just 51 minutes to seal the win.

Gulbis wins Farmers Classic 2011 title in Los Angeles

Gulbis wins Farmers Classic 2011 title in Los Angeles

Ernests Gulbis upset Mardy Fish 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 to win the 2011 Farmers Classic title in Los Angeles.

Gulbis won $113,000 in prize money, he will move from No. 84 to No. 57 in the ATP rankings.

Fis had more aces than Gulbis (14-10) and fewer unforced errors, but tired in the third set on a fairly hot day, losing pace on his serve and allowing Gulbis to take charge.

Gulbis went ahead 5-1 in the third set, but Fish got one break back and rallied to 5-4.

Gulbis used back-to-back drop shots to erase a break point and to get to match point. After his winner landed, Gulbis pumped his fist and flashed the peace sign to a loud group of his fans in the corner of the stadium.

Fish vs Gulbis in Los Angeles 2011 final

Fish vs Gulbis in Los Angeles 2011 final

Mardy Fish defeated Ryan Harrison 6-0, 4-6, 7-6 to reach the final in Los Angeles where he will play against Ernests Gulbis, a 6-2, 7-6 winner over Alex Bogomolov.

Fish started in amazing form as he claimed the opening set with a 6-0 but Harrisonwas able to get into the match and made Fish work hard to close out the match.

"He did most of everything better," Fish said. "He was as tough a player to put away as I've played."

Fish raced through the first set in just 20 minutes.

"That was as clean of a set as I could possibly play," Fish said of the opener.

Harrison came out for the second set with renewed conviction. He held his serve with authority, and when Fish finally faltered, double faulting to give Harrison a break point and set point in the 10th game, Harrison pounced to seize the set.

"I didn't play a great game there," Fish said, who admitted he was feeling "a little pressure".

"You don't want to be in a third set," he said.

"He kept his level, credit to him," Fish added. "He didn't let up. He could have easily won that match."

Harrison said he just tried to keep his composure in the first set.

"There wasn't much that I did—he played an awesome first set," Harrison said. "For me it was a matter of getting on the board and making him feel a little pressure, hopefully."

In the decider, Fish broke for a 2-1 lead but was broken back for 3-3. Herrison held for 4-3 and pushed Fish relentlessly to the tiebreaker.

In the tiebreaker, however, Fish's experience paid off as he quickly took a 5-0 lead and sealed the match on his first match point with his seventh ace.

"Tiebreakers are kind of a coin flip," Fish said. "I was lucky to be able to apply some pressure early."

Harrison said he had progressed since the previous weekend.

"This week the match against Mardy was a lot better," he said. "It wasn't like I was overwhelmed by the situation. Today I really gave myself a chance."

Gulbis upset del Potro at Farmers' Classic tennis

Ernests Gulbis beat Juan Martin del Potro 62 64 to reach the semi-finals of the Farmers' Classic in Los Angeles.

Gulbis broke del Potro in the first game and again in the fifth as he took the opening set with ease.

Del Potro broke first in the second set to go up 3-1 but was broken back in the next game.

Gulbis broke again in the ninth to lead 5-4. He needed four match points to close it out, finally wrapping it up with a forehand winner

"It was very difficult," said del Potro, who never looked comfortable on court. "I got frustrated in the second set when I broke his serve but he broke me back. He was playing with a lot of confidence and took his chances.

"When you play like I did against a player like him, you lose."

"I just need to keep working on my game, I don't know any other way," del Potro said. "But I'm still happy with my level.

"I'm enjoying playing this season, I did well on clay and the grass."

Gulbis is trying to get his season back on track. The Latvian rose as high as 21 in the world in February, but has fallen to 84th after a string of lackluster results.

"This is probably one of the most important wins of my career," he said.

Gulbis next plays against Alex Bogomolov, who upset Thomaz Bellucci 1-6, 6-4, 6-1.

Ryan Harrison scored a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 win over Lu Yen-Hsun to reach the semi-final in Los Angeles.

Harrison will next face Mardy Fish or Igor Kunitsyn.

"Obviously Mardy's been playing fantastic," Harrison said. "He's in the top 10 in the world. I had a tough one against him last week. I'd love to have another shot at him. Igor's also a great competitor. I'll be ready either way."

After an early exchange of breaks in the second set, Lu wasted a bevy of break chances in the seventh game as Harrison held serve.

In the next game Lu double-faulted on break point to hand Harrison a 5-3 lead and the American coolly closed out the set with an ace on set point.

Harrison broke in the seventh game of the third set and wrapped it up with a service winner on his second match point.

Los Angeles: Del Potro beats Blake to reach quarters

Los Angeles: Del Potro beats Blake to reach quarters

Juan Martin del Potro beat James Blake 6-4, 7-6 to reach the quarterfinals of the Farmers Classic.

Delpotro and Blake traded the final eight games of the set, leading to the decisive tiebreak. The Argentine took control from there and won when Blake was unable to return his serve.

“I think I’m still a little far from the top-10 players,” Del Potro said. “It’s a long road to get there. I was playing really well before I got here.”

In the next round Del Potro will face Ernests Gulbis, who defeated Daniel Kosakowski 6-2, 6-4.

This is Gulbis’ third tournament under the tutelage of coach Guillermo Canas. The two began working together at Wimbledon and the relationship appears to be paying dividends.

“On the court I didn’t really have someone to push me,” Gulbis said. “We were working hard, spending a lot of hours on court. And then everything just starts to come back. It’s all basically about practice and confidence. That’s all there really is to it.”
