Isner Falls In Quarterfinals In London
John Isner will play in the quarterfinals of the Olympics in men's singles.

Aug. 2, 2012

ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia men's tennis alum John Isner on Thursday was eliminated from the singles tournament at the Olympic Games, falling 6-4, 7-6(5) in the quarterfinal round to the top seed and current world No. 1 Roger Federer.

Isner's Olympic run came to an end at the hand of Switzerland's Federer, whom Isner had defeated earlier this season in Davis Cup play. It was the first time the former Bulldog had ever played on Centre Court at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, home of the Wimbledon championship.

Playing in his first Olympics for the United States, Isner won his first three matches all via straight sets - the best result of his career on the grass courts of Wimbledon.

Isner is the first Olympian in Georgia men's tennis history and one of 26 current or former UGA athletes in action in London. He was an All-America for the Bulldogs from 2004-07 and led the men's tennis team to the 2007 national championship. He still holds the UGA record for career wins in singles (143) and doubles (140).
