Farmers Classic 2012: Sam Querrey Wins Third Title In Dominating Fashion

It was a full week of upsets and surprising finishes at the 2012 Farmers Classic in Westwood. In Sunday's championship match, however, the surprising run of unseeded players came to a brutal end as No. 2 seed Sam Querrey completely demolished Ricardas Berankis.

Berankis had upended No. 6 seed Marinko Matosevic in the semifinals on Sunday, leaving Querrey as the final seeded player in the tournament. Querrey lived up to his seeding and then some in the finals, as he defeated Berankis in straight sets, 6-0, 6-2.

This is the third win for Querey in the Farmers Classic, who also claimed the title in the ATP U.S. Open Series tournament in 2009 and 2010. He only missed last year's event due to a shoulder injury, or else he might very well have picked up a fourth straight title on Sunday.

2012 Farmers Classic: Quarterfinals In The Books

The 2012 Farmers Classic continued at UCLA on Friday. At the end of the day, the quarterfinals at the ATP U.S. Open Series event are in the books and Saturday's semifinal matches are set.

No. 2 seed and U.S. player Sam Querrey stayed alive in the tournament, albeit in interesting fashion. His quarterfinal opponent, No. 5 seed Xavier Malisse retired midway through the second set. It likely would have been academic anyway, as Querrey had won the first set 6-2 and was ahead 3-1 in the second set when Malisse withdrew.

The other three quarterfinals matches were a bit more more straightforward and every match was decided in straight sets. Ricardas Berankis upset No. 4 seed Nicolas Mahut, 6-4, 6-4. Likewise, Rajeev Ram upset No. 3 seed Leonardo Mayer, 7-6 (7-3), 6-3. No. 6 Marinko Matosevic dispatched Michael Russell, 6-2 6-3.
