Can Swimming Make John Isner Better at Tennis?

by JAMES HENRY

ATLANTA – Mind your body – and your body won’t mind.

That is how many tennis players and other professional athletes now are extending their careers.

“We’re just taking care of our bodies better, and science is showing us and technology is giving us better ways of seeing where the body is being broken down and how can we fix it,” said three-time Olympic champion Brooke Bennett. “We’re just a lot smarter, in all sports.”

The distance swimming icon attended the BB&T Atlanta Open, greeting tennis fans at an exhibit commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Olympic Games in Atlanta.

She also met top-ranked American men’s tennis player John Isner. All 6 feet and 10 inches of him.

“I just felt so short,” she laughed after the pair posed for a photograph.

John Isner Getting His Groove Back

 

by JAMES HENRY

ATLANTA – John Isner never expected he’d become the flagbearer for American men’s tennis.

The winner of 10 ATP World Tour singles titles, he’s now vying for his fourth consecutive BB&T Atlanta Open trophy.

“I did not know I wanted to play pro tennis until my junior year at Georgia,” he said. “I told myself that if I ever at any point got in the top 50 in the world, I’d be really proud of that. I’ve far surpassed that. I’ve surprised myself. 

“I’ve been ranked pretty high for a long time now. I know I can, at the very least, maintain that. And I still believe I can get better, even at 31 now.”

While growing up and early on as a student at the University of Georgia, Isner wanted to be a sportscaster.

“Then I realized I was pretty good at tennis,” he smiled. “It worked out.”

Party with the Pros!!

The week before the US Open is by far the busiest lead-up of any slam for the top tennis players and Taste of Tennis has always been one of the largest events on the schedule. This year, it was expanded to a Taste of Tennis WEEK which ended with a bang on Saturday night with the “Party with the Pros.”

The evening featured tennis stars Victoria Azarenka, Sloane Stephens and John Isner in a setting where there was fancy food, handcrafted signature cocktails and music.  Like Taste of Tennis, fans could buy a ticket and get a chance to wine and dine with their favorite player and Measure Lounge in Langham Place was the perfect atmosphere for the event.

Isner is 'putting it all together' in Cincinnati

by JAMES HENRY

CINCINNATI – Top-ranked American John Isner is basking in success on home soil again. But he’s not done yet.

“I’m just very happy. Playing tournaments of this magnitude and being able to get wins like that on a packed stadium court full of American fans cheering me on, it’s an unbelievable feeling,” he said. “It’s one that I haven’t had too much at a tournament this level.”

Isner defeated Juan Martín del Potro 6-7 (5), 7-6 (9), 6-3 to advance to the end of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

It was his third consecutive win against a top-10 player. He beat Milos Raonic, the newest and youngest member of the ATP World Tour Top 10, in the third round and World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals.

Isner, who is projected to climb back into the top-20 rankings next week, will battle resurgent World No. 3 Rafael Nadal in the final, which is scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m. Sunday. The Spaniard ousted Tomáš Berdych 7-5, 7-6 (4).

“I’ve never beaten Rafa,” Isner noted of their three previous encounters.

But, he added, he is up for the challenge.

John Isner and Agnieszka Radwanska Go NAKED for ESPN

It's that time again folks, where we get to see our favorite players baring nothing but the skin they were born in, in ESPN's "Body Issue".  This year the tennis players to grace the pages of the magazine are none other than Agnieszka Radwanska (who arguably has one of the best bodies on the tour) and......John Isner??  Now, don't get me wrong, I love John and he looks pretty hot, he's just so shy I never would have thought he would pose for something like this.  I'm glad I was wrong ;)

To check more photos of sports icons in their birthday suits, click here.  The issue hits newsstands July 12!
