Sixth seed Sam Querrey won a difficult debut on Monday at the Moselle Open in Metz, withstanding 25 aces to edge Ivo Karlovic 4-6, 7-6(4), 6-4 in one hour and 42 minutes. The American is coming off a second-round exit at the US Open and improved to a 24-19 season record.

The 25-year-old Querrey, a three-time semi-finalist this season on the ATP World Tour, is bidding to reach his first final since winning his seventh title in Los Angeles last summer. The right-hander goes on to face either Igor Sijsling or 2008 finalist Paul-Henri Mathieu.

Tsonga/Mahut Advance
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the two-time defending singles champion, returned to the courts for the first time since Wimbledon and teamed up with fellow Frenchman Nicolas Mahut for a 6-4, 6-1 win over Carlos Berlocq and Igor Sijsling. Tsonga had been sidelined with a left knee injury.

Paul Hanley and Andre Sa opened their campaign with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Federico Delbonis and Marcelo Demoliner. The Australian/Brazilian duo are making their team debut this week. The 26-year-old Sa won the Metz title two years ago with Jamie Murray.
