The 1000th ace probably agains Monfils.

Never ever give up

Re: Isner: 999 and counting

Lower this number by 75% and you have a top 80 player at the very best.

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

That's still almost 500 short of Goran's record

Surfaces were much faster back then though, there was carpet, Wimbledon wasn't "furry clay" yet...

It is scary to think what someone like Karlovic could have done in the '90s.

That's true, but compared to Goran, Ivo and Isner ar serving standing on a chair, so it more than evens out

Re: Isner: 999 and counting

Raonic will be another guy with many aces in the future, since his biggest weapon is his serve. Hell, some people are saying he's a serve mug! lol

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco
