Querrey Makes It to the CBS Round

Sam Querrey, the 21-year-old American men’s tennis player who has never made it past the third round at a Grand Slam tournament, is moving on to the Round of 16.

He just finished thrasing the lovable Croatian Ivo Karlovic 7-6, 7-6, 6-2 in a nearly flawless performance: 45 winners to 13 unforced errors.

In the first round he upset No. 9 seed Tomas Berdych, and all these wonderful wins mean he’ll be rewarded with a (likely) match against Rafael Nadal in the fourth round.

"I made it to the CBS weekend!" he said in a press conference today. "That was the goal."

Also: there’s a very good chance he’ll have a prime-time match on Monday night on USA.
