Isner Wins Australian Open Main Draw Wild Card Tournament

©Colette Lewis 2008--

John Isner has won the USTA-sponsored playoff in Boca Raton to determine the recipient of the main draw wild card for next month's Australian Open. Isner defeated Jesse Levine 6-3, 7-5 on Saturday to put his record at 2-0, and because Donald Young beat Wayne Odesnik 7-5, 7-5, there was no need for Isner to play a third match today, as he held the head-to-head tiebreaker over both Young and Levine, who were 1-1, while Odesnik was 0-2.

Surprised Isner won that. I picked Levine. Hopefully this is a start to his comeback. I expect all four of these to get back into the top100 by the clay season. Hopefully the rest will be able to qualify down under.
