Isner has ligament damage

The announcers just confirmed on ESPN, in the ankle. He does not rule out the US Open but its much less liktly now. He is undergoing intense treatment but it may not be enough.

Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson

I heard that too. His tweets yesterday sounding like it was just a little inconvenience, but sad to hear it's worse than expected.

Re: Isner has ligament damage

Ligament damage = a sprain. Should be fully healed unless its a complete tear, which it didnt look like to me.

Re: Isner has ligament damage

John is far from my favorite player to watch, but he seems like an awfully nice guy. I hope he heals well.

Hope he can make it back for the the US Open.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Isner has ligament damage

Could this have something to do with the unending match with Mahut? He probably came out of it with several months of physical wear added.

Re: Isner has ligament damage

bad timing for this injury, hope he heals soon. like his low profile, just down to business.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
