The 2011 tennis season has started. I know because my mom has been glued to her TV, which always amazes me because I find it's the second most boring sport to watch on TV, after golf. While her favorite racket-swinging stud is Spaniard Rafael Nadal, she also likes the tall American drink of water known as John Isner.
25-year-old Isner made headlines last year when he smashed the record for the longest tennis match ever played. He battled Frenchman Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon for 11 hours and 5 minutes, which finally ended with Isner’s 70-68 victory in the fifth set.
He's also known for being the only player in the top 150 to attend college for 4 years (University of Georgia), having one of the hardest serves (140mph), and being the second tallest player on tour (6’9”).
Born in Greensboro, North Carolina, Isner currently resides in Tampa, Florida. Supposedly he's single, and ladies love a southern gentleman! He's been featured in Glamour magazine and is often included in blogs about sexy tennis studs.
You can currently watch Isner compete in the Australian Open where he's ranked 20th. Check out these pics!
