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.
