While best mate Sam Querrey hides out somewhere in Europe after fleeing with his family from a possible COVID-19 quarantine in Russia on a chartered jet, John Isner is stewing back home in Dallas, his truncated ATP season over.
The big man has packed it all in for 2020, withdrawing from indoor autumn events in Vienna and Paris Bercy, prepared to wipe the slate clean on the virus-dominated slumping season.
Isner’s last event, the French Open, left a bad taste after the American exited in the second round.
The 2018 Wimbledon semi-finalist will now spend time with his wife and child in their new home in one of the poshest of Dallas neighborhoods.
The No. 23 has had a poor 2020 at the three majors played, going out early in January at both the ATP Cup and the Australian Open. The US Open was no better, yielding a first-round loss.
