Isner upsets Djokovic, eyes return to Top 10

MASON, Ohio John Isner doesnt have any delusions of grandeur when it comes to his tennis game. He knows who he is. He knows when he plays the Novak Djokovics of the ATP tour he cant be ordinary.

Why Won’t John Isner Play on Clay?

By Yeshayahu Ginsburg John Isner is honestly baffling as a player. He has probably the best serve in the world.
