Querrey Falls to Nadal, Safina Advances, Mauresmo Is Out

Sam Querrey just proved to the world that he’s a real player. He made Rafael Nadal fight for 3 hours and 13 minutes in an incredibly satisfying four-set match. Nadal took the last set 6-3, thanks in large part to Querrey’s seven blown break points in the seventh game.

In other action, the 2006 Wimbledon Champion Amelie Mauresmo lost very quietly to Flavia Pennetta 6-3, 6-0. Dinara Safina won in straight sets again, this time over Anna-Lena Groenefeld, and she is looking by far to be the best non-Williams in this Open.
