John Isner got access to the second round of the Cincinnati Masters 1000 after beating Cameron Norrie, although the anecdotal and curious note of his triumph was the fact that he had reached 13 thousand aces! throughout his career, a staggering statistic.
The American accumulates no less than 13007 direct aces, being the second player in ATP history to reach that figure. “It is great to have achieved that and I am not going to hide that I would like to be the player with the most aces in all history. I know that Ivo Karlovic is far ahead of me, but I think that if he retires soon I could catch up “, the 208-centimeter giant stood out.
The Croatian has in his hand the valuable number 13709 and the end of his career is getting closer. It’s time to jump into a new brand for the Greensboro, North Carolina giant.
It should be noted that Isner played and won the longest match in history: the one that took place between June 22 and 24, 2010, in the first round of Wimbledon 2010 against Frenchman Nicolas Mahut, with a time of 11 hours, 6 minutes and 23 seconds, and 183 games played (also a record in a match).
