The Line: -- Over/Under:
Sam Querrey and Tennys Sandgren meet in the fourth round of the 2019 tennis Wimbledon.
Sam Querrey is coming off a straight sets win over John Millman that took 35 games to decide. In the victory, Querrey won 85 percent of his first serve points and 51 percent of his second serve points. Querrey won 74 percent of his total service points and converted on three of his six break points. Querrey got 66 percent of his first serves in play, faced just one break point and hit 27 aces. Querrey has won each of his last nine sets and has produced a combined 75 aces through 10 sets. If Querrey is going to keep piling up the free points with his serve, he’s going to be a tough out regardless of opponent. Querrey hopes to make his fourth career grand slam quarterfinal and third at Wimbledon. Querrey has won seven of his last eight matches on grass court.
Tennys Sandgren is coming off a straight sets win over Fabio Fognini that took 31 games to decide. In the victory, Sandgren won 68 percent of his first serve points and 70 percent of his second serve points. Sandgren won 69 percent of his total service points and converted on four of his 10 break points. Sandgren got 63 percent of his first serves in play, saved five of his seven break points and hit 13 aces. Sandgren had no hangover from his marathon match in the second round, and he now has three career wins over top-10 players under his belt. Sandgren looks to win four straight matches on the main tour for the first time since winning the Auckland Open back in January. Sandgren hopes to make his second career grand slam quarterfinal and first since last years Australian Open. Sandgren has won five of his last six matches on grass court.
There’s no match history between these two players.
This should be a fun match between two Americans who are kind of flying under the radar despite playing well these past few weeks. But I’ll say it again about Querrey; he’s too damn talented not to be a consistent threat on the big stage, as he’s a balanced player with a high quality serve. Querrey should without question be a top-20 player and should have far more success on the grand slam level than he has currently. This is Querrey’s match to lose, especially with all of the free points he’s getting from his serve.
Querrey makes the Wimbledon quarters for the third time in the last four years.
