Re: Will John Isner ever win anything big?

So, will he end up with perhaps as many as 10 ATP tournaments to his name?

He currently has 5 with Winston-Salem being quite successful for him.

No, John Isner, is no good. Serve only allows him to win baby tournaments.

When he goes to REAL tournaments,

Hard court series.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Too unfit to ever win a Slam. He will struggle to get past the fourth round in most of the slams.

Might fluke a Masters one day, but the reality is he's a fat useless lump.

He is one of the worst returners on tour, so I'd say his chances of winning anything big on his own is very slim.

Absolutely no chance. His return is terrible and it prevents him from winning easily in early rounds.

Re: Will John Isner ever win anything big?

Isner reached a career high last year, imo. I don't see him cracking the top 10 again .Slams are out of the question for obvious reasons. I think he could get lucky and win a masters1000 if he gets a little bit of luck, and plays well. Even that is unlikely though.

That said, Isner has potential to make any match exciting with his serve, as we've seen before.
