Querrey Completes Dream Run with Win over Nadal in Acapulco

Nadal reaches semis

Nadal reaches semis

A DAY after conquering world No.2 Novak Djokovic to reach the semi-finals of the Mexican Open, Australian Nick Kyrgios has been knocked out by Sam Querrey.

"Every game here is special".

Nadal reportedly revealed that he is happy to have played his best over the last few days but is wary of Querrey, who is now the first American finalist in the tournament's history, despite having a 4-0 head-to-head advantage. "I enjoyed the atmosphere here, so it's great for me to be in the final". Cilic advanced when American Steve Johnson withdrew because of a right ankle injury.

The 29-year-old Querrey ended Nadal's unbeaten streak in the Mexican Pacific resort city in Saturday night's final, reports Efe.

They met for the third time in the semifinals of the Davis Cup between Spain and United States of America on clay courts in 2008, it was another close encounter with the former world number one defeating Querrey, 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-3, 6-4.

Another Jewish cemetery is vandalised, this time in NY
Since Thursday's events, cemetery officials have had time to reflect on the mark the vandalism has left on the public so far. A spokesperson for Waad Hakolel Cemetery said the damage was brought to their attention within the last several hours.

"He's one of the toughest rivals in the world, he has a great serve and is very aggressive", Nadal said. "My serve is the best part of my game, and I had one of my best serving matches tonight". It's a big match. I've had a good week in Acapulco and now I have a few days to continue training and I hope it will help me tighten up some things.

"We did well to win the first match this week (against Cilic/Mektic) because we were down for most of the match tie-break", said Murray.

'After the match against Goffin, I knew I could go far here if I continued to play at that level.

A brace of baseline errors from the 14-time Major champion gave Querrey a 6-3 lead.

In the women' event, seventh-seeded Lesia Tsurenko booked a WTA title showdown with France's Kristina Mladenovic in Acapulco on Friday after illness forced top-seeded Mirjana Lucic-Baroni to retire while trailing against the Ukrainian.
