Berdych defeats Querrey in third round
Berdych, the 2010 Wimbledon runner-up, equaled his best finish at Flushing Meadows. He can get to the quarterfinals in New York for the first time by beating No. 11 Nicolas Almagro of Spain next.
After beating Almagro at this year's Australian Open, Berdych was jeered by the crowd for refusing to shake hands at the net afterward. Berdych believed Almagro deliberately hit him with a ball during a point.
The booing drowned out Berdych's postmatch, on-court interview and continued until he walked off. But Berdych said Saturday night that he and Almagro are fine with each other now.
On Saturday, Querrey compiled a 20-10 edge in aces but only managed to convert 1 of 11 break points, while Berdych broke him six times during the 3-hour, 16-minute match.
The loss was Querrey's fifth in a row against an opponent ranked in the ATP's top 10.
