The United States president Donald Trump is going to visit Great Britain this weekend and he will attend the men's singles semi-final at Wimbledon on Friday if John Isner reaches the semi-finals. The American player needs to beat the Canadian Milos Raonic in the quarters on Wednesday.
In his press conference after his fourth-round win over Stefanos Tsitsipas, he was asked about it and admitted he didn't know anything about Trump's visit. 'Oh, yeah? Nice,' Isner admitted. Asked if he would be honored if Trump comes, Isner replied: 'Certainly.
I'd love to have Trump come watch me. That would be awesome. Maybe I'll tweet to him if I win on Wednesday. I know a lot of people won't like that, but I don't care.' Serena Williams had a very different reaction in terms of excitement. 'I don't know what comments he has made about women in sport.
But I feel like he has the right to do whatever he wants to do. If he wants to come to a Wimbledon final, he has that right. I hope I'll be there. I don't know. I still have a lot of matches to win. For me, I can't even think that far.
I'm just thinking one at a time,' the 36-year-old said.
Safe to say that Serena Williams and John Isner had different enthusiasm levels when asked about a possible Donald Trump visit to #Wimbledon (which I doubt will happen): pic.twitter.com/9lfyQSbuHz — Ben Rothenberg (@BenRothenberg) 9 luglio 2018
