John Isner and Sam Querrey advances to final in the US Men’s Clay Court Championship
American pair of John Isner and Sam Querrey upset 2nd seeds American Eric Butorac and Curacy Jean-Julien Roger in straight sets to advance to final in the Men’s Doubles at River Oaks Country Club in Houston.
Ranked 26th in the ATP Men’s Doubles ranking, Isner and Querrey displayed their tremendous skills throughout the tournament. They trashed the German – Russian pair of Benjamin Becker and Igor Kunitsyn and American wild
card enterers Denis Kudla and Donald Young with a breadstick in the pre semi rounds. They maintained their form in this match and eventually triumphed over the American Curacao seeds by 6-4, 6-3 in just 64 minutes.
In the opening set, the American duo completely outshined their opponents in every department of tennis. With their amazing co-ordination, they clobbered less double faults, faced zero breakpoints and had a much better first serve
share of 73 percent as compared to Butorac and Roger’s 54 percent. Isner and Querrey also earned an amazing 84 percent win on it and by converting one out of three breakpoint opportunities to their advantage, they clinched the set with a 6-4 victory.
The winning combination of Isner and Querrey carried their momentum to the second set and held their opening serve spectacularly. Though they committed more double faults and unforced errors in this final set but due to their perfect
co-ordination, the Americans found five breakpoint opportunities and converted two to their advantage to win the set with an assuring 6-3 score line. In addition to this, the American team registered an impressive 71 percent win on their slightly higher first
serve share and saved the only breakpoint they conceded.
The 5th ranked pair of Butorac and Roger, who were on the other side of net, played poorly throughout the match. They reached this spot after overpowering Australian pair of Ashley Fisher and Stephen Huss and Argentinean
– Russian pair of Carlos Berlocq and Teymuraz Gabashvili in the previous two rounds without losing a set. In this match, the American Curacy tandem had a poor co-ordination and took no advantage of the several unforced errors their opponents clobbered. The
seeded pair also wasted their only breakpoint opportunity and saved only 63 percent of the breakpoints they conceded. Furthermore, they earned less on their fewer first serve share and eventually exited from Houston.
Isner and Querrey will face their top seeded countrymen, the Bryan brothers in the final. Bob and Mike Bryan are also the defending champions and cruised to final without losing a set. They dumped Uruguayan – Spanish pair of Pablo
Cuevas and Guillermo Garcia Lopez with a breadstick to reach this spot.
