LONDON -- American Sam Querrey earned his 200th career singles victory by edging Aljaz Bedene 7-6 (11), 5-7, 7-6 (5) in a rain-interrupted match at the Queen's Club grass-court tournament Tuesday.

The sixth-seeded Querrey saved a match point in the third set before winning the second-round contest, which had four rain delays and took more than 5 hours to complete.

Bedene fell hard while hitting a cross-court forehand winner to take the second-set tiebreaker. He received medical attention but was not injured.

With no breaks of serve in the final set, Querrey saved a match point at 6-5 before winning the tiebreaker.
