John Isner actually played a very consistent season so far - on challenger level. He missed Roland Garros and (even) Wimbledon this summer and played and played on US challenger tour instead.
Any idea why he did that? His ranking was not too bad, at least he could have tried to qualify.
In the end I think it wasn't a bad idea to get matches and build up confidence.
And for the last weeks he seems to be in a very good shape. Just like the summer two years ago when he broke through and looked like a potential top ten player reaching the Washington final and playing a fantastic match against world # 1 Roger Federer at the US Open.
But last year his results were awful and I almost wrote him off.
What do think: Can he break into the top 20? Or even top 10?
And what happend to him last year?
