Conversation with John Isner

Isner won a string of three-set matches to reach the final of the Legg Mason against Andy Roddick, and he followed that up by reaching the third round of the US Open.

Questions and Answers
TennisRecruiting.net: First of all, congratulations on your spring and summer. Winning an NCAA team championship, reaching the final of an ATP event, and taking a set off of the #1 player in the world in the third round of the US Open is a great four months. Is there one moment that stands out the most?
John Isner: Thanks a lot. Believe it or not, the moment that most stands out about my summer so far was winning the NCAA Championship in Athens this past May. My #1 goal in my time at Georgia was to win a team championship, and getting that done during my senior year in front of our fans was an amazing experience.
I have played in front of pretty big crowds this summer - especially at the US Open against Federer. But playing in front of 6,000 screaming bulldog fans was a moment I will never forget.
