Can John Isner Get Unstuck?
John Isner is the highest-ranked player in America and by all accounts one of the best, if not the best, server in tennis. He has an enormous forehand, and ranks second only to Roger Federer in the history of the ATP at winning tie-breakers.
Yet, it seems as if John is stuck in a rut. After missing the Australian Open with a knee injury, John lost a match in the Davis Cup, then was upset twice in a row at San Jose and then Memphis.
Here are two photos of John and below that a slideshow.
Here, you see how far into the court John goes on some serves; I estimate he often hits the ball 4-feet into the court and about 10 ft 7 inches high.
