Andy to take on Sam Querrey in Cinicinati Opener

us open seriesAndy Murray will begin his Cincinnati Masters challenge in his second round match with big serving American Sam Querrey.

Querrey is currently ranked 46 in the world, though is sitting at 36 in the ATP race, so is on the way up. The 20-year old from San Francisco is amongst a number of young Americans who have yet to live up to the expectations of the American fans, who are desperately seeking another potential grand slam winner.

Sam Querrey American tennis PlayerThe 6’6” American plays well on home soil, he made the semi finals in Indianapolis 2 weeks ago losing to eventual winner Giles Simon and his only title came in Las Vegas in March of this year. Querrey has also posted wins against Richard Gasquet and Nicolas Kiefer so far this year.

Murray and Querrey have met once before way back in 2006 in Newport, Rhode Island where a 19 year old Murray beat an 18 year old Querrey 7-5 6-2.

Andy Murray will be looking to go one step further than the semi finals of this masters event. The Scot has now reached four master semi finals, in 2007 he reached back to back semi finals in Miami and Indian Wells losing to Novak Djokovic on both occasions and he has reached the semis at the Toronto masters event, the Rogers cup twice, he lost to Ricahrd Gasquet in 2006 and last week to Rafael Nadal.

The bookmakers have Murray as odds on favorite to win. As usual Betfair has the best overall odds and are still offering their free £25 to new sign ups. Though Betfair are favouring Andy Murray to win, whilst Ladbrokes are offering the highest odds for a Andy Murray win,
