Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, August 10th, 2016.- Sam Querrey’s debut in Los Cabos wasn’t as expected. Santiago Giraldo got in the way of what, everyone thought, was going to be a succesfull run by Querrey. The match lasted an hour and twenty-three minutes and ended with a 7-6 (1), 6-3 score for the colombian.

Querrey had a bye for the first round and “head to head” statistics were in his favour, making him a strong candidate to take the win. Unforced errors and trouble with his serve made him had an early exit from the tournament.

“I had a great game, I felt comfortable on court. I knew he had to handle my serve and make the most of every opportunity with his serve in order to win. I am happy with the win. I am having a tough year with a lot of disappointments, but I feel physically ok and expecting the best”. said 28 year old Giraldo.

Querrey had a tough time from the fifth game on which in the end sent the setto a tibreak. For the second set, Giraldo, looked more comfortable and made his opponent look desperate, this led to a 6-3 win for him.

The first quartefinal bracquet has been decided. On Thursday, Giraldo will be facing Pablo Carreño Busta. Carreño had a comfortable win over the American Austin Krajicek with a 6-0, 6-3 score.
