“After a massive effort like the one that John put forth today a player is physically exhausted and emotionally drained. He has been a terrific competitor at our event for over a decade, winning three titles in that time. John has a lot of fans in Newport, and we will certainly miss him next week. We are thrilled to have seen his success throughout Wimbledon and during this entire season,” said Todd Martin, International Tennis Hall of Fame CEO and Tournament Director in a media release on Friday evening. “We have a great group of players coming to Newport starting on Sunday, and we look forward to a spectacular week ahead.”
Three-time Newport champion John Isner has withdrawn from the Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open, following a deep run at Wimbledon and an incredible 6 hour, 36 minute battle in today’s semifinal versus Kevin Anderson.
