10 first rd losses in majors, 1-4 in 5 setters in majors, pisses me off......
Good gracious if he is one of the future big stars for the US, we are screwed beyond belief, just lazy and pathetic tennis at the end.
And I though Sam Queerey will reach number 10 in the world!
I don't think you can call this loss to Kubot a choke. Kubot outplayed Sam. He hit way more winners and took risks that payed off. Can't take nothing away from that. Hopefully he can go far again this year.
Heheheehee,,, Querry lost to a Doubles player.....We all know how much singles guys hate that.
That is absolutely correct! and querrey's lack of motivation is those last 3-4 games.
sammy 2010 performance = Rd of 16
2011 = 1st rd loss
Rather large loss of points...
Come on, Kubot is a journeyman who was limping. Sam just looks like he doesn't want to be there.
Well, Sam, another 1st round loss. Congratulations.
70 mph second serves wtf querrey? Poland forever!
Querrey just isn't very good.
Big guy, little heart...
Entitlement all over his face
Querrey is a bit smarter than Fedace. But just a bit.
Is this possible?
Quirkey still a kid... never looks confident out there... I actually saw this coming... Davydenko was a shocker!!
Is HarDvard better than StanDford?
Haha all the yanks get there knickers in a twist when Querrey disappoints them..........
C'mon Tomic.......Oh you lost again after all those news articles on you.
I still remember Querry's "I'm not bummed out - I have tickets to the All-Star Game'' quote after one of his losses.
Why disappointed? There won't be another Pete or Andre for a while, talent wise.
I really don't understand why some of the posters here feel they have reason to be pissed off at an underperforming countryman. Some seem really almost personally disappointed in him. I don't really get that.
As BG pointed out, he rarely shows much emotion on the court.
Is he just relaxed, or is he bored?
Looks like he has little interest in being on the court.
Doesn't seem motivated enough.
Kubot wanted it more, sam doesn't have that sixth gear and does not use emotional intensity to gain that extra level. he needs passion. Kubot has passion and fire.
great interview here with Kubot...
Querry seemed ALOOF and pretty casual, like he was playing an exhibition. Perhaps that's just him.
I think the biggest issue was FOOTWORK. My God, how many times did he not get a racquet on the ball or was way out of position and did that "half volley stab" thing?
Not a good showing at all.
Tennis declined in the British Isles before it declined in Australia and New Zealand. By "declined", I mean those countries gradually found it increasingly difficult to produce Wimbledon or world champions. The same thing might now be happening in the United States.
I haven't really seen enough of Querrey to be able to judge him as a player, but if someone like John Isner, with such a weak backhand, is the future of men's tennis in the USA, then things look rather bleak for the United States.
Gotta agree with this one. Sam looked like he wanted to be somewhere else after the 2nd set. This guy has no fire in his belly unless he eats some bad Mexican food.
Q is just another guy from the US that will live a few years off his sponsors, then feed a bunch of balls to the next group of kids
if he didn't care so much, why did he not just rip forehands and go for big serves? Seems to me he cares too much, why else would he tighten up and start feeding loopers down the center deep in the 5th for Kubot to crush. I don't care about his demeanor and body language, to each his own. Look at how he played the match and he got way too tight, way too often.
He's still a kid. You gotta give him time to get over nerves and all that. He just wasn't playing his best tennis cause he was being so passive, but you gotta admit that Kubot was playing good tennis.
yeah, its disappointing to watch Querry. I feel Brad Gilbert can help him
Uh, ok, I'll explain it to you. American character is based on a Purtian work ethic and exceptionalism, and when we see someone not performing up to standard, or choking on an easy match against a limping journeyman, we take it personally.
We used to see guys like Agassi get the most out of their talent, so its sad to see guys like Querrey not play up to par.
And Querrey beat the crap out of Klahn last year, so what does that say about your boy from Stanford? Not a whole lot...
"We used to see guys like Agassi get the most out of their talent, so its sad to see guys like Querrey not play up to par."
This is a joke, right?
i wouldnt call Querrey a choke, at least not in this match. as others pointed out, he had no fire, lazy footwork, and was just pushing the 2nd serve in. i'm surprised it even went to 5 sets.
Not a choke. Just played a pretty flat match, and Kubot had a very good returning day.
I think this guy has not enough endurance to play long matches. Just to check his stats when he's doing a 5 setters... 1V-6L if I remember well
