“After more than seventeen years on the ATP Tour, it’s time to say goodbye to professional tennis,” the 38-year-old Isner wrote on X, previously on Twitter. ,, The US Open will be my last event.
It is reported that Isner is the player who fired 14,411 aces in the ATP tournaments, more than any other person in the history of the sport. And he can add more smashes next week: The US Open, where he reached the quarter-finals in 2011 and 2018, begins on Monday.
Those powerful serves took Isner away. He was the highest-ranked American in the ATP year-end rankings from 2012 to 2020, and was in the top 20 in the world rankings from 2010 to 2019. He has won 16 ATP singles titles and eight doubles titles.
Isner is also known for his marathon first-round match at Wimbledon against France’s Nicolas Mahut in 2010. The tall American prevailed 6-4 3-6 7-6(7), 7-6(3), 70-68. That match lasted eleven hours and five minutes, spread over three days.
