John Isner is aiming for another world record at Wimbledon, this time against Andy Murray on Centre Court, where he is 40 aces short of Ivo Karlovic’s record. US tennis star John Isner is attempting to break the all-time Wimbledon aces record against home favourite Andy Murray on Wednesday.
Isner is best known for winning the longest tennis match in history, an 11-hour, five-minute marathon at Wimbledon in 2010. Isner is now chasing the all-time ace record as he faces Murray in the second round on Centre Court. Isner has produced 13,688 aces in his 15-year career, falling 40 short of Ivo Karlovic’s ATP Tour record of 13,728.
Isner, 37, who has never beaten Murray in eight meetings, will get his chance in front of a sold-out Centre Court. Andy is a unique individual. He’s much more difficult to master because of his incredible anticipation,’ Isner said.
‘He’s so at ease on the grass, more so than I am.’ He has far more victories in this tournament than I do.’ Grass may be his best surface, but it is most likely not mine. But it helps a lot with my serve.’ Isner and Murray have never met on grass before, and it will be interesting to see how the American’s big serve will fare against a returner as good as Murray on this surface.
