Sam Austin Querrey[1][2] (born October 7, 1987) is an American professional tennis player from San Francisco, California, who currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. His career-high singles ranking is world no. 17, achieved in January 2011. Renowned for his powerful serve, Querrey holds the record for the most consecutive service aces since the ATP began keeping records of those statistics, with 10 in a 2007 match against James Blake.[3] He is also a capable doubles player, with five career doubles titles and a career-high doubles ranking of world no. 23.[4] He regularly partners with fellow American John Isner.

In singles, Querrey has won eight career titles, and achieved his best performance in a Grand Slam event at the 2016 Wimbledon Championships, where he reached the quarterfinal. In the third round of the tournament, Querrey famously defeated world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in four sets. At the time, Djokovic was the holder of all four Grand Slam singles titles, and was the two-time defending champion at Wimbledon. Querrey's victory ended a run of 30 consecutive Grand Slam wins for Djokovic. Other career highlights for Querrey include reaching the semifinals of the 2015 US Open in men's doubles with Steve Johnson and the final of the mixed doubles event in the same tournament, partnering Bethanie Mattek-Sands. He has also twice reached the semifinals of the Davis Cup with the United States team, in 2008 and 2012.

Early life[edit]

Querrey was born in San Francisco and attended Thousand Oaks High School, graduating in 2006.[5] Querrey turned down a scholarship offer from the University of Southern California (USC) to turn pro.[6] His father Mike Querrey recommended that his son try making it in tennis,[7] as he often regretted his own decision to go to the University of Arizona rather than play baseball for the Detroit Tigers, who had drafted him. Querrey said that going pro was "one of the toughest decisions of my life. […] I'd play a match and want to go pro. I'd lose and want to go to college."[8]

Career[edit]

2006[edit]

On June 11, 2006, Querrey became the first player to win a challenger event in his pro debut.[citation needed] He won in the Yuba City and Winnetka challengers.[citation needed] He won his first-round match at the Indian Wells Masters tournament over Bobby Reynolds, before falling to James Blake in three sets.[citation needed] He defeated American Vince Spadea at the Countrywide Classic in Los Angeles. At the US Open, Querrey received a wildcard and defeated Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets, before falling to Gastón Gaudio in the second round.[9]

2007[edit]

At the 2007 Australian Open, he advanced to the third round.[citation needed] He defeated José Acasuso, the 27th seed, in the first round.[citation needed] In the second round, he defeated Frenchman Florent Serra in straight sets, but in the third round lost to 7th seed Tommy Robredo in four sets.[citation needed]

At the 2007 Indianapolis Tennis Championships, he hit 10 consecutive aces when he defeated James Blake in the quarterfinals. This is believed to be an Open Era record.[10]

At the 2007 Western and Southern Masters, he defeated thirteenth seed Mikhail Youzhny and advanced to the quarterfinals after defeating Argentina's Juan Mónaco, who had defeated Rafael Nadal in the previous round. He lost to no. 9 seed James Blake, but made his top 50 debut at no. 47 afterwards. At this time, Querrey was the third-ranked American behind Andy Roddick and James Blake.

In August 2007 at the US Open, Austrian Stefan Koubek defeated Querrey in the first round.

2008[edit]

In January 2008 at the Australian Open, Querrey defeated Belgian Olivier Rochus in the first round. In the second round, he then beat Russian Dmitry Tursunov. He lost in the third round to the eventual champion, Serbian Novak Djokovic.

In March, Querrey won his first ATP level tournament at the Tennis Channel Open in Las Vegas.[citation needed] In the final, Querrey defeated qualifier Kevin Anderson of South Africa in three sets. The next month, at the Monte-Carlo Masters, Querrey reached the quarterfinals, defeating former French Open champion Carlos Moyà, Andreas Seppi, and no. 7 seeded Richard Gasquet.

Querrey played tennis for the USA at the Beijing Summer Olympics in 2008.[citation needed] He advanced to the fourth round of the US Open by defeating 14th seed Ivo Karlović of Croatia, where he was defeated in four sets by world no. 1 Rafael Nadal.

Querrey was tapped to play for the US in the Davis Cup semifinals against Spain as a replacement for James Blake, who had withdrawn citing exhaustion.[citation needed] In Querrey's first-ever Davis Cup match, he lost to world no. 1 Rafael Nadal in four sets.

2009[edit]

Querrey at the 2009 French Open

In the 2009 Campbell's Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in Newport, Rhode Island, no. 3 seeded Querrey advanced to the final against compatriot and first-time finalist and lucky loser Rajeev Ram, who had entered the main draw when top seed Mardy Fish had to take Andy Roddick's place in the Davis Cup quarterfinals. Querrey lost the match.[citation needed]

Querrey in Indianapolis

Querrey defeated no. 1 seeded Tommy Haas to advance to the final of the LA Tennis Open.[citation needed] He defeated qualifier Carsten Ball in the final for his only title of the year.[11]

Querrey next played at the ATP Tour 500 event in Washington, where he lost to top seed Andy Roddick, in the round of 16. He also played at the Cincinnati Masters losing in the third round to Lleyton Hewitt.

In the 2009 US Open, Querrey lost in the third round to Robin Söderling in four sets.

Querrey's year was ended prematurely by a potentially career-threatening accident in which a glass table he was sitting on collapsed, impaling his arm and requiring emergency surgery; the location of injury just missed causing nerve damage, which could have ended his tennis career.[12]

Querrey finished the year ranked a career-high no. 25, and as the no. 2 American behind Andy Roddick.[citation needed]

2010[edit]

Although seeded at the Australian Open, Querrey lost in the first round to 2003 Australian Open finalist Rainer Schüttler.[citation needed] Querrey then reached the semifinals of the SAP Open, where he lost to Andy Roddick in singles.{ However, Querrey teamed with Mardy Fish to win the doubles title.[citation needed]

Querrey's next tournament was the 2010 Regions Morgan Keegan Championships, where he was seeded eighth.[citation needed] He defeated defending champion Roddick in the quarterfinals. He then defeated Ernests Gulbis in the semifinals, and defeated fellow American John Isner, for the championship.[citation needed] Querrey also teamed with Isner in the doubles, where they won the championship; Querrey became the first player to win the singles and doubles at Memphis simultaneously since 1981.[citation needed] At the Abierto Mexicano Telcel, he lost in the first round against Fernando González in three sets.[citation needed]

Querrey and Isner were selected to play singles for the United States Davis Cup Team against Serbia on indoor clay in March 2010. After losing to Novak Djokovic in four sets, Querrey managed to beat Viktor Troicki in straight sets in the unnecessary fifth match.[citation needed]

After receiving a bye in the first round, he beat Blaž Kavčič in straight sets in the second round, and in the quarterfinal, beat Nicolás Massú in three sets.[citation needed] In the semifinals, he beat Wayne Odesnik to reach his eighth final on the ATP World Tour.[citation needed] He lost to Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela in the final.

He reached the doubles final with John Isner at the 2010 Rome Masters, but lost to Davis Cup teammates Bob and Mike Bryan.[citation needed]

Querrey played in the 2010 Serbia Open and progressed to the final, where he faced Davis Cup teammate John Isner. Querrey defeated Isner, for his second title of the year, and his first ATP title on clay.[citation needed]

At the 2010 French Open, Querrey was seeded 18th, but lost in the first round to fellow American Robby Ginepri in four sets.[citation needed] He withdrew from the doubles event, where he and Isner were the 12th seeds.[citation needed]

In the Queens Club in London, Querrey beat fellow American Mardy Fish in straight sets, in the final of the Aegon Championships.[citation needed] The victory made him the first American to win the tournament since Andy Roddick.[citation needed] The victory gave Querrey his third title of the season, making him the only player besides Rafael Nadal to win at least three titles, and made Querrey the first player in 2010 to win titles on three different surfaces.[citation needed] This was Querrey's first ATP tour title on grass.[citation needed]

Despite being ranked no. 21 in the world at the time, Querrey was seeded no. 18 at Wimbledon, due to his Queen's Club result.[citation needed] He was entered in the doubles with Isner, where they were the 12th seeds, but the partners agreed to forfeit after Isner played the longest tennis match in history.[13] In the singles, Querrey defeated 2002 Wimbledon semifinalist Xavier Malisse in five sets to reach the fourth round of Wimbledon for the first time, where he lost to Andy Murray.[citation needed]

Querrey defended his title at the Farmers Classic in Los Angeles, winning a third-set tiebreaker in the quarterfinals against 2003 Australian Open finalist Rainer Schüttler, then defeating Janko Tipsarević in the semifinals, to reach his fifth final of the year.[citation needed] In the final, Querrey faced world no. 4 and 2010 Australian Open finalist Andy Murray. Querrey defeat Murray in the final.[citation needed] This was his first successful title defense, making him the first man since Andre Agassi to win two consecutive titles at this tournament.[14]

After early losses in the Canada Masters and the Cincinnati Masters, Querrey entered the 2010 US Open ranked no. 22 and seeded no. 20.[citation needed] He defeated Bradley Klahn in four sets, then defeated Marcel Granollers and 14th seed Nicolás Almagro in straight sets to reach the fourth round, tying his previous best result in any Grand Slam.[citation needed] In the fourth round, he lost to 25th seed Stanislas Wawrinka.[citation needed]

2011[edit]

Querrey struggled with injury during this year.[citation needed] He reached the quarterfinals of two tournaments, both ATP 500 series.[citation needed] The first in Memphis in February, where he lost to Mardy Fish, and the second in Valencia, where he was beaten in straight sets by Juan Martín del Potro.[citation needed]

He was eliminated in the second round of the 2011 French Open by Ivan Ljubičić, and did not play at Wimbledon or the US Open, due to an elbow injury that required surgery.[16]

2012[edit]

Querrey at the 2012 Nice Open

In the Australian Open, Querrey made it to the second round, where he was defeated by Bernard Tomic in four sets.[17]

Querrey reached the semifinals of the Aegon Championships, losing to Marin Čilić.[18]

Querrey progressed to the third round of Wimbledon, only to once again lose to Čilić. This was the second-longest match played in Wimbledon history, clocking in at 5 hours and 31 minutes, second only to the Isner-Mahut match at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships (11 hours and 5 minutes over 3 days).[19]

At the Farmers Classic, Querrey defeated Ričardas Berankis for his third Los Angeles title in four years.[20]

Querrey then went on to making the third round at the US Open, losing to Tomáš Berdych.

At the BNP Paribas Masters, Querrey defeated Novak Djokovic in the second round.

2013[edit]

Early in the year, Querrey made the seminfinals in Auckland and San Jose. He exited in the fourth round of Indian Wells and Miami, losing to Novak Djokovic and Tomáš Berdych, respectively.

In Davis Cup competition in Boise, he won his first rubber against Viktor Troicki, but lost the deciding rubber against Djokovic, despite the fact that Djokovic suffered an ankle injury early in the match.

Querrey was eliminated in the first round in Madrid, Rome, and Wimbledon. He did not have a good summer on the North American hard-court swing and consequently slipped out of the top 20, ceding his place as top American player to his friend John Isner.

The year was not very successful, since Querrey failed to make a single final for the first time since 2011.

2014[edit]

Querrey also struggled early in 2014, being eliminated in the first round in Brisbane and Sydney. However, he made it to the third round of the Australian Open, defeating Santiago Giraldo and Ernests Gulbis, before succumbing to Fabio Fognini.

He lost both of his ties in the Davis Cup against Great Britain in San Diego in January and was eliminated in the first round in Memphis and Delray Beach.

He made it into the second round in Indian Wells and Miami, losing to Andreas Seppi and Nicolás Almagro, respectively.

He had his best showing of the year thus far in Houston, where he made the semifinals of the clay-court event. However, there he again lost to Almagro.

Querrey failed to qualify in Rome and Nice, continuing his frustrating year. He also lost his first match in the second round in Nice to Albert Montañés.

At the French Open, Sam defeated Filippo Volandri in the first round, but went down to Dmitry Tursunov in the second in straight sets. His form picked up at the Queen's Club grass tournament, where he defeated Jérémy Chardy and Denis Kudla in the first two rounds. He lost in the third round to eventual semifinalist Stanislas Wawrinka.

Sam made it to the semifinals of the Aegon International in Eastbourne, England, but fell to eventual champion Feliciano Lopez.

2015[edit]

Querrey reached his first singles final for three years at the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships, where he was beaten by compatriot Jack Sock. Querrey then reached the final of the Nottingham Open, where he lost to Uzbek Denis Istomin. Both Sock and Istomin were first-time ATP tour singles winners.

2016: First Grand Slam quarterfinal[edit]

After failing to make it past the 2nd round of any tournament since July, Querrey started 2016 with a very strong run, reaching the semi-finals in Memphis, where he would lose to the eventual champion Kei Nishikori. The following week, Querrey reached the final at Delray Beach, where he defeated American Rajeev Ram to win his first ATP title since 2012 and return to the Top 50 of the world rankings.

At Wimbledon, Querrey faced Novak Djokovic in the 3rd round while his opponent was holding all four majors. Despite being listed as high as a 30-1 underdog,[21] Querrey upset the world No. 1 player in four sets to snap Djokovic's streak of reaching at least the quarterfinals in every Grand Slam since the 2009 French Open, and his streak of 30 consecutive Grand Slam match wins.[22] It was also Querrey's first win over a No. 1 ranked player. He then continued his successful run by defeating Nicolas Mahut to become the first American to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam since John Isner and Andy Roddick did so at the 2011 U.S. Open. In the quarterfinals, he lost to Canadian Milos Raonic in four sets.[5] Despite this defeat, the 2016 Championships marked Querrey's best ever performance at a Grand Slam.

Playing style[edit]

Querrey is right handed and uses a doubled-handed backhand. He is regarded as one of the best servers on the tour.[23]

Equipment and sponsors[edit]

Querrey plays with the Babolat AeroPro Drive GT Racquet after switching from Prince.[24] He wore Adidas apparel and shoes until the end of the 2009 season. At the start of the 2010 season, he changed his clothing sponsor to K-Swiss.[25] In February 2012, Querrey has announced that he will be joining the Babolat team and playing with their Aeropro Drive GT Plus racket.[26]

Charitable work[edit]

Querrey plays in tournaments to raise money for charities such as the Boys and Girls Club, speaks to school groups like Healthy and Active Lifestyle (HAL) in Fort Wayne, Indiana and has expressed an interest in creating his own nonprofit organization.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Querrey's fan club, the "Samurai Club", was started by high school friends of his. They attend his matches shirtless with the letters "S-A-M-M-Y" on their chests.[27]
