Rafael Nadal’s run at the Mexican Open in Acapulco is over as he lost 3-6, 6-7(3) to Sam Querrey in the final.
The American served 19 aces and did not face a break point in the opening set. Rafa fought back in the second set but failed to convert any of his six break point opportunities.
After the match, Rafa said:
He played very well, almost reaching perfection. I played under a lot of pressure because of his serve and baseline game. He left me with very few options, and the few I had he also played good. I have to congratulate him. I’m also very happy with my week and my game.(via AP)
Our champ is still seeking his first title of 2017, having also finished runner-up at the Australian Open. His next tournament is Indian Wells.
Win or lose, always with Rafa!
