American tennis star Sam Querrey has committed to play the US Men's Clay Court Championship in Houston next year, the tournament announced. The 32-year-old has been a regular participant of the Houston event throughout his whole career as he is set to make his 12th appearance at the tournament.
The American has had several deep runs on the clay courts of Houston but he has yet to win a singles title at the tournament. Querrey ended runner-up at the Houston event in 2010 and 2015 and also made the semifinals on two other occasions.
"I’m super excited to return to Houston in 2020 for the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship,” Querrey said. “I have had a lot of success in Houston over the years, and the fan base is among the very best in tennis.
River Oaks is a wonderful historic venue to play at, and I aim to bring home the title in 2020." In 2012, Querrey won the Houston doubles title alongside the now retired James Blake. "Sam has always been a fan-favorite here at River Oaks," Tournament Director Bronwyn Greer said.
