Gilles Muller enjoys fame after memorable Wimbledon win over Rafa Nadal

American tennis player John Isner is happy to have chosen the University of Georgia over any other university. The 32-year-old turned pro 10 years ago after getting a degree at the university, where he majored in speech communication.

The American went on to capture 12 ATP singles titles and reached a career-high ranking of number nine since. Isner, who was born in Greensboro, North Carolina, has had lots of success so far in his life in the state of Georgia.

''If I had gone anywhere other than Georgia, I wouldn't be here today,'' Isner said.. The world No. 20 just concluded yet another strong campaign at the Atlanta BB&T Atlanta Open, winning his fourth title at the Georgian tennis event.

Isner edged fellow countryman Ryan Harrison in Sunday's final 7-6 (6) 7-6 (7) to make amends for last year's final loss suffered to rising Nick Kyrgios. Isner has been a dominant force in Atlanta since making his debut in 2010 -- ending four times winner, three times runner-up and losing in the semi-final stage in 2012.
