Sam Querrey tells ESPN.com that he’d like to be the highest-ranked American man, but adds that he wants to earn the spot through effort rather than default. Querrey is currently the second highest-ranked American at No. 22 behind his occasional doubles partner, No. 14 John Isner.

"It would mean a lot to me," Querrey said. "I want to do it off of my good results, by going deep at the Masters events and Slams, not off the other guys not doing well. I don't want to be the U.S. No. 1 ranked 22nd because other guys fell off in the rankings."

Querrey also said that he is no longer working with Brad Gilbert, who was working with him as a consulting coach, but will continue to work with coach David Nainkin of the USTA.
