Re: A very warm welcome to the newest top 10 playe:r John ISner
Here's hoping he cracks the top 8 tomorrow then! One of the really nice guys on the tour who has worked on his footwork and groundies so much in the past few years. The man has rightly earned his spot in the top ten.

I agree with a lot of people that his game isn't attractive, but he for sure isn't a mug or clown, which even in the top 10 can be rare.
Loveable character, wish him all the best.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
