Sam Querrey put on a serve masterclass against Thomas Fabbiano in the semi-finals of the Nature Valley International in Eastbourne on Friday.

The 6’6” American fired as many as 33 aces past his 5’7” Italian opponent on his way to pulling off a 6-3 6-7 6-3 victory in one hour and 43 minutes.

And in the fourth game of the second set, Querrey nailed all four of his serves to close out the game without even letting Fabbiano touch the ball.

“I like playing on grass,” Querrey was quoted as saying by ATP World Tour. “It’s nice to take three months off and come back and make a final. Usually that doesn’t happen, so I’m pretty thrilled.”

Up next, the 31-year-old is scheduled to lock horns with countryman Taylor Fritz in the title clash, a challenge he doesn’t really relish coming his way.

“It’s never that enjoyable playing another American, but it happens,” Querrey said.

“We have all played each other. I’ve played John Isner and James Blake and Mardy Fish and Steve Johnson a handful of times, so it happens.

“You’ve just got to put aside the friendship for a couple of hours and do your best to go out there and try to win.”

It will be the final match for the duo before Wimbledon, which gets under way on July 1.
