London - FIVE facts on Sam Querrey, the American world No 41 who stunned defending champion Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon on Saturday:

- Began playing at four

- His father Mike, a mortgage banker, was drafted by the Detroit Tigers baseball team but chose to play college baseball instead

- 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."

- In 2012, he contested the second longest men's singles match in Wimbledon history, losing in the third round to Marin Cilic 7-6 (8/6), 6-4, 6-7 (2/7), 6-7 (3/7), 17-15 in 5 hours 31 minutes
