John Isner has pulled out of today's Hopman Cup tie between USA and Spain. He will be replaced by Aussie Thanasi Kokkinakis, a 16-year-old.

There are a ton of American male players in Australia now—shame Hopman couldn't get any of them to Perth in time. Injury not unforeseeable.

John Isner out of Hopman Cup:

Quote:
PERTH, Australia -- John Isner withdrew from the Hopman Cup on Thursday with a right knee injury, ending the American team's chances of reaching the final of the eight-country tournament and handing a championship berth to Spain.

Isner, who still hopes to compete at the Australian Open beginning Jan. 14, played with tape on his knee when he lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France on Tuesday and later said he was suffering from "a little tendinitis." He also lost to South African Kevin Anderson in his opening match on Sunday.

The highest-ranked American at No. 14, Isner said he still plans to play in next week's Sydney International and the Australian Open.

"My plan now is just to treat it as best I can and see how it reacts," Isner said. "I do know I've always been a fast healer when I've had little injuries pop up here and there, so I'm confident I'm going to be fine for the Australian Open.

"It's not a great way to start the year but I'd rather it happen this week than in two weeks."

John Isner Doubtful for Australian Open

John Isner may miss out on next week's Australian Open due to an ongoing leg injury. Isner lost yesterday in Sydney to fellow American Ryan Harrison.

By Erik Gudris
John Isner (January 9, 2013) - John Isner may be forced out of next week's Australian Open due to an ongoing leg issue he's been dealing with since December.

Isner, who was the top seed at this week's Apia International event in Sydney, lost his opening round match yesterday to fellow American Ryan Harrison 6-4, 6-4. Isner is suffering form a bone bruise on his right leg that forced him to withdraw from the Hopman Cup earlier in the month.

During his post-match press conference, Isner hesitated to confirm if he would play in Melbourne or not.

"From now up until Melbourne I definitely can't practice like I need to," said Isner to ATP.com. "I could play. Certainly I could win a match maybe, a match or two. I don't see myself winning the whole tournament at this point, that's for sure....

Default John Isner Not Sure He’ll Be 100 Percent For Davis Cup

http://www.worldtennismagazine.com/archives/8928

Quote:
After missing the Australian Open due to a bone bruise in his right knee, John Isner may not be fully recovered for this week’s U.S. Davis Cup team’s first round match against Brazil in Jacksonville, Florida.

“I can’t say if I’ll be 100 percent in three or four days,” Isner was quoted in the Greensboro News-Record, his hometown newspaper, in an article published Monday. “I just don’t know. I’ll give it a try this week and see how it goes. I do know I won’t take any chances and risk the rest of the season. If I can play, I’ll play. If I can’t, I’ll wait.”

Isner told the News-Record’s Jeff Mills that a recent MRI showed reduced swelling. Isner also said to the News-Record that doctors had told him that his recovery could take four to six weeks.

Isner, ranked No. 16 in the ATP rankings is joined on the U.S. team by No. 20 ranked Sam Querrey and the doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan.

Isner, as the U.S. No. 1 player, is set to play against the Brazilian No. 2 player, Thiago Alves, ranked No.141, Friday during the first day of play in the best-of-five match series if Alves is the No. 2 nominated singles player as expected. Querrey, as the U.S. No. 2 player, will play the dangerous Brazilian No. 1 player Thomaz Bellucci, who is ranked No. 36, also on Friday.

If Isner gives it a go, he would be heavily favored to beat Alves in the faster indoor conditions, even if he was not playing at 100 percent. If Querrey is able to beat Bellucci, the U.S. would take a commanding 2-0 lead into Saturday’s doubles match, where the Bryan twins, fresh off winning their all-time men’s record 13th major doubles title, would be heavy favorites to clinch the series by a 3-0 margin by beating likely Brazilian doubles team of Bruno Soares and Marcelo Melo, who reached the quarterfinals at last year’s Olympics, beating Isner and Andy Roddick en route. Isner, as the U.S. No. 1, is scheduled to play the Brazilian No. 1, Bellucci, in Sunday’s opening reverse singles match with Querrey and Alves closing out the best-of-five match series.

Should Isner not be able to compete this week, U.S. Davis Cup Captain Jim Courier can substitute another singles player just prior to Thursday official Davis Cup draw ceremony. Both Bob and Mike Bryan currently do not have ATP singles rankings, although both have played “dead rubber” singles matches for the U.S. after a match has been clinched. The next highest ranked American player in the ATP singles rankings is Mardy Fish at No. 31, but Fish is still recovering from a heart condition and has not competed since he was forced to withdraw from a fourth-round match with Roger Federer at the U.S. Open in September. The retired Andy Roddick is still ranked at No. 41 and is the next highest ranked player, followed by No. 53 Brian Baker, who is out until late March due to a knee injury suffered at the Australian Open. Ryan Harrison, who played for the U.S. against France in last year’s quarterfinals, is the next highest ranked player at No. 57.

Isner said that missing the Australian Open is not the best omen for his 2013 season.

“I think it has set me back, to be honest,” Isner said to the News-Record. “You want to get off to a good start at the beginning of the year in Australia. And I wasn’t able to do that because of the injury. … It wasn’t great timing, but there’s nothing else I can do. I could’ve loaded up on some anti-inflammatories and given it a shot, but I wasn’t in any shape to go there and try to compete.”

Default Re: 2013 Season

Q. John, can you talk about what you've been doing to get ready and stay in shape the last couple weeks and how is the knee?
JOHN ISNER: It's definitely been feeling better. I've been doing everything I can to try to get this better.
Really, once I pulled out of Australia, there wasn't much I could do besides rest. Rest was the most important thing. I can ice it five, six times a day. I can do some treatment on it. But the most important thing for me was rest. I definitely have that.
My knee, it is feeling better. Hopefully I'll be able to go on Friday. I would really like that. We have to see how this week progresses.

Q. Jim and John, Brazil was just back for the World Group. It was very emotional. How is Davis Cup for you guys? People are going to be supporting not only you, but Team USA, the nation.
JOHN ISNER: It's an incredible honor I know for me, and I know for these guys sitting beside me. Also, as well, Captain Courier. The Bryan brothers have been doing it for 10 years. That just shows their commitment and how much they enjoy Davis Cup and how much they enjoy representing their country.
Sam has always answered the call when his name has been called, and same for me.
I think I speak for everyone when I say it's a huge, huge honor. We're excited to finally, myself and Sam, to play on home soil. We've never played a match in the U.S. I think both of us are looking forward to that.
As the captain said, this match is the first step towards our goal. We're going to go out there and enjoy it and try to get it done.
