   Sam Querrey’s title drought continues.
   The 12th-seeded Querrey lost to unseeded Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 7-6 (1), 7-6 (6) today in the final of the Aegon Open in Nottingham.
   Querrey, a 27-year-old San Francisco native, was seeking his eighth career singles title but first since Los Angeles in 2012. He also lost in the Houston final in April to countryman Jack Sock.
   Istomin, 28, won his first career singles crown in his third final. Milos Raonic defeated Istomin for the San Jose title in 2012.
   Querrey is scheduled to face qualifier Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands in the first round at Wimbledon, which begins Monday. The winner probably will face second-seeded Roger Federer, a seven-time singles champion at Wimbledon, in the second round.
   Istomin is set to meet Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain in the opening round at Wimbledon, with the survivor likely to play 13th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France.
