Biography:

Sports Speaker John Isner is presently the highest ranking male tennis player in the United States, and as of April 2012 became the number nine ranked singles player in the world. A graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in Speech Communication, John went pro in 2007 and has not looked back since. As the eighteenth player to serve 5000 aces, John is known for his power on the court and unfailing serve, and his 6’10” frame is intimidating for any opponent. The North Carolina native holds the record for the longest professional tennis match played in history after a three day, eleven hour and five minute game against Nicolas Mahut, in which John ultimately came out the victor. This performance earned him the 2010 ESPY Award for Best Record-Breaking Performance in sport, which he shares with Mahut. John’s other records includes most aces in a Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and Grand Slam singles match with 113 and games won in a single match with 92. He has won eight ATP titles to date.

John has endorsement deals with Lacoste, Anatabloc, Ebix, Prince, Tourna Grip, and Saddlebrook. He currently trains at Saddlebrook Academy alongside other fellow tennis greats Mardy Fish and James Black. John is also intimately involved in giving back to the community and is an avid supporter of ovarian cancer research; his mother is a survivor of the disease and a close friend from his college years was diagnosed four years ago. He hosted a charity exhibition match in 2010 in support of research efforts at Duke University Medical Center, as well as the Inaugural Charity Challenge with tennis star Sam Querrey, which benefitted the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. Also having served as an ambassador for Coca-Cola’s “Ambassadors of Active Living” campaign for the 2012 Olympics, John promotes a healthy, balanced, and active lifestyle.
