Tennis - American John Isner is a product of the American collegiate system and the world no. 14 thinks it is a very good option for young players, especially on the men's side.

Speaking after his first round win on Tuesday at the US Open, Isner commented, "Well, on the men's side I think it's definitely viable, and also on the women's side, but probably more so on the men's. You guys know there aren't many 19, 20 years olds on the tour right now -- at least in the top 100 at all. In my opinion, there's no better way to become a better player and really just a better person in general, to go to college during those years and -- you know, go to college, win a lot of matches, which is what I did. When you leave college, you come off feeling pretty good about yourself and about your game. This game is changing a little bit where, as I just said, there aren't too many teenagers ranked high right now."

Isner beat Italian Fillipo Volandri in the first round on Tuesday and next meets former world no. 7 Gael Monfils in the second round.
