Here are two members of The Samurai, the cheering squad for Sam Querrey, who were hanging out immediately after Querrey’s gritty four set loss against Rafael Nadal. On the right is Dan Farrugia, a 19-year-old who’s studying industrial and labor relations at Cornell and has known Mr. Querrey since the sixth grade; on left is Wes Burrows, a 21-year old tennis player at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

"We just wanted to stay respectful," said Mr. Farrugia.

The Samurai certainly did a much better job of it than James Blake’s increasingly irritating cheer squad, The J-Block.

Despite the loss, it was a great day. They learned they were on CBS all day thanks to the "flood of text messages" they recevied, said Farrugia. A moment later, Sam Querrey, who had just finished his press briefing, greeted them and said, "Do you guys realize how much airtime you got?"

Even so, Farrugia and Burrows were worried that they would have horrible tan lines on their chests in the shape of the letters painted there.
