In a series of withdrawals from the Rio Olympic Games, Sam Querrey is the latest to be announced as a non participant for the upcoming event. After John Isner's decision not to make main draw of the Olympics tournament back in April, Querrey now becomes second American player who has decided to pull out from the same event.
In the past, 28-year-old Querrey who didn't make trip to last Olympics in London, has represented his country only once, back in the 2008 Beijing Games where he lost immediately in the first-round against Igor Andreev in straight sets, 6-4 6-4.
Querrey now joins rich list of those who opted to skip Brazilian event, as names of two Australian prospects Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios, rising Dominic Thiem, and others, can be found too. However, four invitations for the Olympic Games tournament are projected to be given to the Americans, and Querrey's withdrawal will open up opportunity for another player to jump into his spot.
