The Last Time... With John Isner
by James Buddell|
American John Isner reveals the last time...
I cooked for myself or others?
A few weeks ago when I was at home. My speciality is anything with sweet potatoes and meat.
I flew economy class?
I flew from Tampa to Houston. I always fly economy domestically.
I missed a flight?
It’s been a long time. I am usually very anal about being on time. I’ve cut some flights close, but I can’t remember the last time I missed one.
I met a childhood idol?
Last December, I met WWE wrestler Shawn Michaels.
I shared a hotel room with another player or a coach?
Two years ago, my coach [Craig Boynton] and I were going to Madrid and had to re-route to Barcelona for one night.
I had to pay to use a tennis court?
New York City, two years ago, when it rained.
I strung a tennis racquet?
High school. I normally string from 60-63 lbs when I play on clay.
I dressed formally for a dinner?
It would have been last month's United States Davis Cup tie versus France in Monte-Carlo.
I slipped on my diet?
This morning I had a croissant.
I forgot a family member/close friend’s birthday?
I forgot my brother’s wife’s birthday last week. I don’t keep a diary.
I lost something important?
I’m pretty good at taking care of my possessions. Wallet? No. Cell phone? No... Chapstick! My chapstick is very important.
I asked someone for their autograph?
Shawn Michaels? No! I was probably in middle school.
Being recognised helped me?
In Houston, a lot of things happened there...
I visited a country for the first time?
Monaco for the Davis Cup tie. I loved it and visited the casino.
I was asked if I was a tennis player?
If people have no idea who I am, I never get asked that.
