Stars, Stripes and Swiss: Catching Up with Isner and Sock

The Tennis Island

After a long year on the tour, several American men are playing their penultimate tournament of the season on Swiss soil. Donald Young, John Isner, Jack Sock and Denis Kudla all made the trip to Basel and it’ll be their penultimate event of the year. With the exception of Kudla (who played compatriot Sock), all men made it into the second round, which features another all-American encounter: after joining up for doubles on Wednesday, Isner and Sock will be on opposite sides of the net on Thursday. René Denfeld caught up with the two Americans in advance of their second round match on Thursday.

“Your time to play,” Isner jokingly told his doubles partner Jack Sock midway through the second set.
