John Isner’s big  appetites appear to be fully satisfied inside the New York tennis bubble, with the American quite happy to nosh on gourmet takeaway as he plays the “Cincinnati” Masters.

The 2.08, 108 kg American made his way easily into the second round and next takes on Australian John Millman for a third-round spot.

Isner says that life in the restricted player environment is more than tolerable – even with the culinary delights of cosmopolitan Manhattan absolutely off limits.

“You could argue the greatest food in the world is in Manhattan,” the Dallas-based 16th seed said. “It’s been a lot of Uber 

“We are trying to mix things up and not try the same (delivery) restaurant too many times so it doesn’t get stale.

He added: “Look, it hasn’t been at all bad, can’t complain at all. The USTA and ATP have done an incredible job of putting on this event and keeping us players comfortable in the bubble.

“It’s definitely not what we’re used to. I would certainly prefer to walk the streets of Manhattan and go find a nice restaurant to eat at, but all in all, it’s not bad at all.”
