“I played great out there. That was the best I’ve played all summer,” said Querrey. "I was aggressive the whole time and returned well. I thought everything went pretty well.”
Querrey, No. 56 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, extended his FedEx ATP Head2Head record against the No. 20-ranked South African to 7-4. The American served at 68 per cent and claimed 86 per cent of first serve points (40 of 46), including nine aces. The 26 year old will face Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the quarter-finals.
"I was comfortable on the court tonight," said Isner. "I got off to a great start, putting a lot of pressure on him and doing the right things."
The two-time champion (2011-'12) did not face a break point during the 68-minute contest, and fired 17 aces against his Russian opponent. The World No. 15 next plays seventh seed Lukas Rosol, a 1-6, 6-2, 6-2 winner over Spaniard Pablo Andujar.
