Sam Querrey v Dominic Stricker Head to Head
No previous matches have been played between Querrey and Stricker before this quarterfinal.
Querrey Takes Down Duckworth
After an easy first round win over Turkish qualifier Altug Celikbilek, Querrey was made to work a tad more but still completed a straight-set victory over James Duckworth in the second round.
Querrey carved out a 6-4, 7-6 (7) win in a match that lasted an hour and 25 minutes, outgunning his opponent in a match that had three breaks of serves. Two of those went to Querrey, a decisive one in the first and another one to level the proceedings in the second.
The American hammered 23 aces on his way through to the win, saving two set-points in the tie-breaker before converting the first match-point he got.
Querrey will look to rely on his serve yet again against a player who is playing in his first ever career grass court competition.
Stricker Makes it Four Tie-Breakers in a Row
It’s some record to have. Stricker has now played successive rounds here in Stuttgart, won both of them in straight sets and both of which were in tie-breakers.
In short, Stricker’s won all four sets, all of which went into a tie-breaker. And while one might have expected him to do that against Radu Albot, his 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5) win over the second seeded Hubert Hurkacz would have come as a surprise to most.
After all, Stricker is just 18 and ranked outside the top 300 in the world but most importantly playing in his first ever tournament on grass – that’s across all circuits.
He has had a solid season on the lower circuits though, with a Challenger title in Lugano and later made it to the quarterfinal at Geneva in what was his maiden ATP competition appearance.
And now with another quarterfinal under his belt, on a surface quite contrasting to clay, Stricker looks to have made the world sit up and take notice.
Can he take his third scalp of the competition?
Querrey v Stricker Prediction and Tip
Querrey is a favourite going into this match with bet365 offering 1/2 for his win but Stricker can be expected to tackle him with his own brand of solid tennis. Expect a long-drawn two-setter or a gruelling three-setter here.
