On Friday at the very beginning of the match at Wimbledon in the game against Italian Yannick Sinner Joe Isner managed to set a world record for the number of aces in the ATP.
The 37-years-old American, famous for his gigantic stature, started the match with 4 aces less than the Croatian Ivo Karlovic, who served 13,728.
Isner scored a victory over Andy Murray, then broke the record in the third game of the match on the second court, completing the fifth ace.
It is important to recall that keeping the score began in 1991. Before Friday’s match, Isner, looking forward to the opportunity to break the record, said that it would be really great. You can definitely be proud of this if you become an absolute leader. But you should not stop there, you need to continue to add the total in order to keep the championship for as long as possible.
John Isner is listed in the record book for the longest match in the history of tennis, which was held in 2010 against the Frenchman Nicolas Mahut. Wimbledon Court 18 was awarded a plaque commemorating the competition, which lasted 11 hours and 5 minutes.
American tennis player John McEnroe aired on ESPN offered to give another sign.
