Re: Big John Isner : True Potential Please
Isner, in difference to Ivo, can actually play some solid tennis from the baseline. Not top10, probably not even top30 on the tennis alone. But along with his serving and decent movement for a guy his size, I can see him reaching a Wimbledon/USO semi for sure, as early as this year.
Problem I see with Isner is that he doesn't seem to perform nearly as well outside of NA, which is needed order to make a significant splash in the rankings, i.e. moving into the top10. He'll be a pretty feared opponent on fast surfaces but won't be good enough to consistently upset superior players. He's bound to win a couple of 250's I guess, maybe 500's but highly doubtful to ever win a Masters event or Slam imo.
