Early life


Querrey was born in San Francisco and attended Thousand Oaks High School, graduating in 2006.[8] Querrey turned down a scholarship offer from the University of Southern California (USC) to turn pro.[9] His father Mike Querrey recommended that his son try making it in tennis,[10] as he often regretted his own decision to attend 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."[11]

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.

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 Blake.
