Johnson/Querrey Flying The Flag
American duo advance to semi-finals
With no American men remaining in the singles draw, the Johnson/Querrey duo becomes one of the host country’s best hopes for a title this weekend. Both men were eliminated in the opening round of singles, but were able to concentrate on the team event and post their best-ever doubles results at the US Open.
Also advancing were Dominic Inglot and Robert Lindstedt, who upset No. 6 seeds Rohan Bopanna and Florin Mergea 7-6(2), 6-3 in 82 minutes. The British-Swedish partnership has thrived on American hard courts, winning the title in Winston-Salem the week leading up to the US Open before winning four more matches at Flushing Meadows.
