Querrey loses in doubles quarters at Indian Wells

   If Sam Querrey entertained any thoughts of pocketing the $1 million bonus for sweeping the singles and doubles titles in the BNP Paribas Open, he can forget them.
   Querrey, a 30-year-old San Francisco native, and Gilles Muller, a 34-year-old left-hander from Luxembourg, lost to Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay and Horacio Zeballos of Argentina 6-4, 6-4 today in the quarterfinals at Indian Wells.
   Querrey is very unlikely to win the singles title anyway. Seeded No. 18, he will meet No. 32 Milos Raonic, the 2016 runner-up to Novak Djokovic, on Friday at noon (ESPN) in the quarterfinals.
   Also, looming are sixth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro in Querrey's half of the draw and top-seeded Roger Federer in the other half.
   No other man or woman remains alive in both singles and doubles.
   Cuevas and Zeballos are scheduled to face seventh-seeded Bob and Mike Bryan on Friday at about 4 p.m. The Bryan twins, former Stanford stars who will turn 40 next month, seek their third Indian Wells title.
