LONDON (AP) -- Australia's Lleyton Hewitt upset American Sam Querrey 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 Thursday at the Queen's Club grass-court tournament.

In a matchup between two former Queen's champions, the 19th-ranked Querrey saved five break points in the first set but failed to convert five in the second. The 82nd-ranked Hewitt won the only break point of the final set to advance to the quarterfinals.

Top-seeded Andy Murray beat Frenchman Nicolas Mahut 6-3, 7-6 (4) to advance to the third round. The match had been suspended by rain at 2-2 in the first set on Wednesday.

Murray saved all three break points and broke Mahut twice.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga struggled to a 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-3 victory over Edouard Roger-Vasselin.
