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.
