Murray Lost in ATP LA Open Final 2010

Second seed Sam Querrey saved a match point in the second set before upsetting top-seeded Briton Andy Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-2) 6-3 to retain his LA Open title on Sunday.

The big-serving American, who had not won a set in four previous meetings with Murray, produced his best tennis of the week to wrap up victory in two hours 22 minutes at the LA Tennis Center.

After breaking the world number four in the sixth game of the final set, Querrey clinched his fourth ATP Tour title of the year when his opponent hit a backhand service return long.

The 22-year-old punched his right fist into the air in delight after becoming the first player to win back-to-back LA Open crowns since fellow American Andre Agassi in 2002.
