Sam Querrey, the 2010 U.S. National Indoor champion, is back in Memphis this week. He considers himself refreshed after a minor injury forced him to take some time away from tennis last year. His doubles partner, Ryan Harrison, can sense his confidence building. Querrey plays Alex Bogomolov Jr. in tonight's last match on Stadium Court.
