Querrey and Clayton Battle for 16s Singles Championship Sunday
"I played a perfect match, ? said Clayton, who has been playing ITF events rather than national tournaments this season.
Clayton?s second visit to Kalamazoo this year was much more successful than his trip in 2003, when he was seeded eighth and lost to an unseeded Hunt in the first round.
?I love playing in front of all these people,? he said. I?ve never seen crowds like these.?
Third seed Sam Querrey of Thousand Oaks CA outlasted his doubles partner, top seed Spencer Vegosen of Chicago IL 6-3, 7-5.
?It?s hard to play your friend,? said the16-year-old Easter Bowl champion. ?But I had a good time."
Vegosen won the Clay Courts last month, so between them, they have taken all three National Championship singles titles this year. But Querrey is not as familiar with Alexander Clayton. ?I?ve never played him,? said Querrey, ?but I know I?ll have to play my best to win."
