- Baseball fan Querrey hit two home runs in batting practice in 2008 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami

- In 2015, Querrey took part in a TV dating show, Millionaire Matchmaker in the US - without great success. "The date was fun, the girl I chose was really cool. At the end of the episode it said we're still together, but actually she never talked to me once after the show was shot."
