Wimbledon: Novak Djokovic-conquerer Sam Querrey was once on a TV dating show
London: Sam Querrey was once such a loser in love that he jokingly turned to American TV reality show Millionaire Matchmaker last year to help him find the girl of his dreams. It wasn't a success.

Currently, he is dating model Abby Dixon. However, on Saturday, the big-serving American proved to be more than a match for the world's greatest tennis player when he sent Novak Djokovic spinning to a shock defeat at Wimbledon.
Querrey agreed that his easy-going nature, which his friends exploited to get him on to Millionaire Matchmaker. His heroics on the tennis courts of the All England Club have at least extinguished memories of his ill-fated 2015 experience of trying to find love on primetime television.
"The date was fun, the girl I chose was really cool," he recalled. "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."
