New Kid on the Block

by Savannah

Q. What do you take out of your experience at the Open, particularly your match against Rafa?

SAM QUERREY: You know, just got to play with that confidence. I was doing a great job that week of taking care of my body with stretching, massages, plenty of water and good food. I'm definitely going to have to keep that up to play through five-set matches on clay.

I played well against Rafa. I played him twice now. I've taken sets off him in both matches. I've got some confidence. I mean, both those matches were on hard court. Clay might be a different story. I definitely got the confidence I can play with him and possibly beat him.

Come to think of it - why hasn't Mardy Fish been selected to face the Spanish? Isn't he in a rich vein of form these days?

I would much prefer his chances to Querrey's to get at least one win in singles at this event. If Roddick can get another, then it's down to the doubles, and I think Americans are as good as anyone in doubles, even without the Bryan Brothers.
