No. 2 American Sam Querrey To Return To Winston-Salem
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C – Crowd favorite and world number 13, Sam Querrey, has committed to play in the eighth Winston-Salem Open. Querrey has been a fixture throughout the tournament’s history, appearing five times and reaching the semi-finals three years in a row (2012-2014).
The 30-year-old recently reached a career high ranking of 11 earlier this year after finishing 11 straight seasons inside the ATP Top 100. Querrey has 10 titles to his name and reached his first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon in 2017 – the first American to do so since Andy Roddick in 2009.
Querrey has helped the American men reach the Davis Cup semi-finals twice, in 2008 and 2012, and is a capable doubles player with five titles and a career high of 23 in the world.
“We always enjoy having Sam at the Winston-Salem Open. He’s such an accomplished player and an all-around nice guy. Given the effectiveness of his huge serve and forehand, especially on the hard courts, he will be in a great position to make a deep run this August,” says Tournament Director Bill Oakes.
The Winston-Salem Open is the final tournament in the summer-long US Open Series. This ATP event began in 2011, and in 2017 the tournament reached a global audience of more than 3.5 million in more than 100 countries. It won ATP Tournament of the Year in 2016, as voted on by the players. The Wake Forest Tennis Complex will host the tournament August 18-25. Tickets are now on sale.
