Querrey, Kunitsyn win first round matches

Sam Querrey of the United States won his first ATP-level match on clay when he beat Luis Horna of Peru 7-6 (5), 6-4 in the first round of the Estoril Open on Sunday.
In the day's only other main draw match of the joint ATP-WTA Tour event, Russia's Igor Kunitsyn defeated local wild card Pedro Sousa 6-1, 6-1 in 50 minutes.
The 19-year-old Querrey, who made his ATP debut just over a year ago, rallied from 3-1 down in the second set against Horna, who won his second ATP title in February at Vina del Mar, Chile.
Kunitsyn's win was his first since February at Las Vegas.
World No. 5 Tommy Robredo of Spain entered when Andy Murray of Scotland withdrew with a back injury. Robredo was a finalist in 2005.
