Los Angeles: Two-time champion Sam Querrey won his opening match in the Farmers Classic, beating Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands 6-2, 6-2 on Wednesday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.
Querrey, the 2009 and 2010 tournament winner who missed the event last year after undergoing surgery for a right shoulder injury, had nine aces and didn't face a break point in the 53-minute match.
"I feel like it's my tournament to win (again)," Querrey said. "I played great. I served really well, a lot of energy, and I hit my forehand great. There were a couple of little thing I could nitpick here and there but overall it was really good."
