UGA’s John Isner advances to Wimbledon quarterfinals

Former Georgia men’s tennis All-American John Isner continued his impressive run at Wimbledon with a 6-4, 7-6 (8), 7-6 (4) win against Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas during Monday’s fourth round. 

The victory puts Isner into the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the first time in his career.

Isner will now face Canadian and No. 13 seed Milos Raonic Wednesday. 

The ninth-seeded Isner is looking to become the first former Georgia men’s tennis player to advance to the finals of a grand slam singles event since Mikael Pernfors made the finals of the French Open in 1986.
