Querrey claims the Mexican title

In the Mexico Open, the unseeded Sam Querrey pulled off a remarkable upset by winning the title at the expense of the favourite, Rafa Nadal.

I'm ecstatic. To do it against Rafa makes it even a little sweeter

The big serving American stunned his opponent 6-3 7-6(3) to inflict the first defeat suffered by the Spaniard in Acapulco on the three occasions he has played there, winning in 2005 and 2013.

Querrey, ranked 40th in the world, struck 19 aces which he supported with some excellent groundstrokes to secure his first ever win over Nadal in five meetings.

"I’m ecstatic," Querrey said. "To do it against Rafa makes it even a little sweeter."

It was his ninth ATP title in an impressive week that saw him beat four top-10 players — Belgian David Goffin, Austrian Dominic Thiem, Australian Nick Kyrgios and sixth-ranked Nadal.

"It’s definitely a tournament that I’m going to remember for the rest of my life," Querrey said. "It’s just one of those weeks where I got in the zone and everything was working for me. I hope I can have more like this.

"After the match against Goffin, I knew I could go far here if I continued to play at that level," he added. "My forehand and backhand were great and my serve bailed me out of trouble when I needed it."

"He played very well, almost reaching perfection," Nadal added. "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."

In the doubles there was good news for Britain as Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares picked up their first title of the year defeating John Isner and Feliciano Lopez 6-3 6-3 in the final.

Murray said: Š—“We did well to win the first match this week (against Cilic/Mektic) because we were down for most of the Match Tie-break. But thatŠ—Ès what often happens in doubles. You squeeze through the first match and go on to win the tournament. Today was a difficult match, a lot of good serving. We knew we werenŠ—Èt going to get loads of chances, but we were able to take the ones we had.Š—
