(AP) American Sam Querrey edged Jarkko Nieminen of Finland, 4-6, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (12) Wednesday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Winston-Salem Open.


Querrey overcame losing the first set and five match points in the third-set tiebreaker.


The 29th-ranked Querrey will face unseeded Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania, who advanced with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Roberto Bautista Agut.


Querrey is one of two American players remaining in the Winston-Salem Open, the final hard-court tournament before the U.S. Open next week.


Qualifier Steve Johnson, who upset second-seeded Andreas Seppi of Italy on Tuesday, will face Chinese Taipei's Yen-Hsun Lu later Wednesday.
