   San Francisco native Sam Querrey, seeded 28th, led Brazilian left-hander Thomaz Bellucci 6-4, 5-2 today when their second-round match at Wimbledon was suspended by rain.
   The encounter between Querrey, ranked 41st, and Bellucci, ranked 62nd, is scheduled to resume on Court 7 on Thursday at 3 a.m. (PDT).  
   It's the second meeting between the 28-year-old veterans. Querrey won 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 on an indoor hardcourt in Jacksonville, Fla., in the first round of the 2013 Davis Cup.
   The winner will face top-seeded Novak Djokovic, who eliminated left-hander Adrian Mannarino of France 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (5) for his 30th consecutive Grand Slam victory. Djokovic has won Wimbledon the past two years and three times overall.
   Also Thursday, qualifier Dennis Novikov of Milpitas in the San Francisco Bay Area is set to meet No. 31 seed Joao Sousa of Portugal for the first time. The survivor likely will play No. 8 seed Dominic Thiem of Austria in the third round.
