Sam’s the man at Queen’s
TENNIS: American Sam Querrey gave himself a pre-Wimbledon boost after beating close friend and training partner Mardy Fish to win the Aegon Championship at Queen’s Club.
The 6ft 6in Querrey, 28, used his big serve to full effect on the grass, coming through 7-6 (7-3), 7-5 against world No90 Fish, conqueror of Andy Murray.
“It’s an honour,” said the unseeded Querrey, who claimed a fifth ATP Tour title and first on grass.
“All the greatest players in the world are on this trophy. It’s nice to be added to that list with them.”
Welcome win for Bjorn in Estoril
GOLF: Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn shot a closing round 68 to ease to victory in the Portuguese Open – his first European Tour success in four years.
Bjorn, 39, finished on 23-under-par in Estoril for a five-shot lead over playing partner Richard Green, of Australia.
England’s Robert Rock was the highest-placed Brit, finishing fourth on 14-under, while Darren Clarke’s best-of-the-day 66 saw him climb to sixth, two shots further adrift.
It caps an incredible turn of form for Ryder Cup star Bjorn, who had just put an end to a run of six successive missed cuts.
