   Not only did Sam Querrey win for the first time in the young World TeamTennis season, he did so emphatically.
   The 32-year-old San Francisco native routed Ryan Harrison 5-1 in the opening set, leading the Vegas Rollers to a 23-21 (2-0 extended play) victory over the San Diego Aviators today at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.V.
   Querrey, 6-foot-6 (1.98 meters), blasted five aces and committed no double faults as Vegas improved to 2-1. Harrison, who underwent elbow surgery last October, had two aces and two double faults.
   Querrey had lost to 18-year-old Brandon Nakashima 5-1 in Vegas' season opener on Sunday and 5-4 (5-3) to Tennys Sandgren on Monday.
   In today's second set, Monica Puig edged Christina McHale, Harrison's sister-in-law, 5-4 to give Vegas a commanding 10-5 lead.
   San Diego (1-1) won the last three sets 5-4, but the Rollers' Bob Bryan (Stanford, 1997-98) held serve at 15 in the second game of extended play to end the match.
   After an off-day on Wednesday, Vegas will meet the Orange County Breakers (0-2 entering Wednesday's match against the Chicago Smash) on Thursday at 8 a.m. (ESPN+) at The Greenbrier.
