  • John Isner said he won't play the Australian Open because of Covid-19 restrictions

American John Isner has chose to skip next month's Australian Open as Covid-19 protocols mean he would be away from his family for an extended period, the Tennis Majors website reported on Monday. John revealed the news following the quarter-final loss to Sebastian Korda in Delray Beach, missing another opportunity for winning the home title he is missing in his collection.

Isner, 35, said he wanted his family to travel together to "make it as much fun as possible on the road", but added that that would be impossible this year because of the pandemic.

At this stage of my career and life, I always had visions of traveling with my family.
