Querrey gone, no Americans in US Open quarters for second straight year

Sam Querrey has been ousted from the U.S. Open, meaning no American man will make the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows for the second straight year.

The 20th-seeded Querrey lost Tuesday to No. 25 Stanislas Wawrinka 7-6 (9), 6-7 (5), 7-5, 4-6, 6-4 in a fourth-round match that took nearly 4½ hours in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Querrey was the last U.S. man left in the tournament. Earlier, No. 19 Mardy Fish, No. 18 John Isner, No. 9 Andy Roddick and 11 others had been eliminated.

America's last male champion at the U.S. Open was Roddick in 2003. The country's only hope for a singles title now rests with Venus Williams, the lone U.S. player left in the women's draw.
