Querrey is SO underrated. One of the best match I have seen from him, great he won that tie break because I could not see him win the 3rd.
Like a boss!

Come on Kyrgios, get rid of this clown Querrey fast. Nobody wants to see a Querrey-Nadal final except maybe some serious ************* members.

A little bit of respect for Querrey next time please, I know it may be too much to ask!!

Well done Querry. Congrats. Tough Loss for Nadal. He would rue those 4-5 break points that he missed in 10th game (when Querry was serving at 3-4).

He's been in decline for years, this just put a cherry on top of it. Losing matches he should win (like tonight's match) is a classic sign of just not being dominant anymore. That ship sailed years ago.
Unlike the Beatles, you are a one song wonder. A bit like John Lennons post Beatles career.

Well done to Querry for surviving Nadals second set onslaught. His shots may be flatter than a song by Morrisey, but he did the job.

What say you now about Djokos loss to Kyrgios, who played better imo ?

Nadal had great chances to take this match into 3rd but he wasnt playing that well but well played querry for such a remarkable week.I hope nadal plays at his aus open level in the coming master tournaments.
Nadal played very well in the second set. He was on fire at times. I left to go to the loo and thought I'd come back at the beginning of the 3rd. I was wrong.

Not that he lost a final for the first time. Querry gave very limited chances for his serve to be broken.

American tennis great again two weeks in a row! Especially sweet is this one after all the 1R flameouts, especially Sock not backing up the Delray title. Only Sam and DY beat non-Americans and Young's win was partly due to "the unbearable heat" of being BernTom.

Very happy for SQ!

On the flip side, Nadal has now lost seven straight HC finals since his last title at Doha'14 vs Gurufils. What a lesson he received that day!

Acapulco'17 - querrey
AO'17 - fedr
Doha'16 - amor y paz
Basel'15 - fedr
Beijing'15 - amor y paz
Miami'14 - amor y paz
AO'14 - slaminal

He has won just four sets in those seven matches, 3 from fedr and 1 from slaminal.

I didn't see the match so I don't know what happened. It looks like Querrey gave Nadal a lesson on hc continuing on with his brutal serving and big shotmaking from the Djokovic Wimbledon defeat? Did they speed up the Acapulco court this year? It sure seems like it from all these aces by Kyrgios and Querrey.

So much for my theory that if Nadal wins this tournament it could restore his confidence and he could on a tear. It doesn't look like that will happen at least not yet. It's interesting that Djokovic and Nadal continue to struggle to win titles but aging spares no player.

At the beginning of the year I said I thought this would be an unpredictable year and that Djokovic and Murray won't win all the slams. Let's see what happens during clay season and if Nadal and Djokovic can get things sorted out enough to be the favorites for the FO. The players on tour who can play very well on clay are few.

Well Nadal is nearing 31 and he's been on the tour since age 15 or 16? Can't expect domination forever.
