A Native of Greensboro, North Carolina, John Isner is a professional American tennis player who at 27 achieved his career-high singles ranking of world no. 9. John is currently the highest-ranked male American tennis player. He is widely considered one of the greatest servers in tennis.
John is the only top 20 tennis player to have attended a four-year college. He led the University Georgia tennis team to an NCAA team title and earned All-American honors each season.
He also played the then 10th longest singles match – a 5 hour 41 minute encounter in the second round of the 2012 French Open.
Someone would be surprised to know in my 20s that I’ve never grown out of the phase of watching pro wrestling on TV. I grew up watching that, me and all my friends in North Carolina, and I never grew out of it. So, for me, I think people find that pretty surprisingly that a professional tennis player like myself still sits down on Monday night for 3 hours to watch professional wrestling.
My favorite all time pro wrestler is Sean Michaels, my favorite current wrestler is Randy Orton. Ah between Cain and Undertaker, probably Undertaker, though I’m not a big fan of either of them, but if I had to choose one it’d be the Undertaker.
