I like his story. Congrats John

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: A very warm welcome to the newest top 10 player: John Isner

Congratulations. Better player and better personality than fish

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

David Nalbandian

Craig Boynton is the best coach on tour at the moment. The improvement of Isner's weaknesses and his mental toughness is as good or better than Magnus Norman's efforts with Soderling

Love it. People may dislike his game but he's got an infectious personality and plays his best at tight moments, which makes a nice change from what we usually see outside of Nole and Rafa.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Great stuff, well deserved.
Victories over Fed and Djoko within one month time, that's saying something!

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: A very warm welcome to the newest top 10 player: John Isner

Given the fact Isner was actually below .500 heading into Newport last season, he's got the opportunity of his career to really rise up the ranks very quickly and establish himself as a top 8 player going forward. He's proven he's very dangerous on clay and with his confidence levels so high right now, sky is the limit. As long as he continues to win, the ranking will take care of itself.

Congrats John, deserved!!

And now let's smile on these 'old' comments: Will John Isner make Top 10 in 2012?

Never ever give up
