His serve can win tournaments by itself, no other strokes required. All joking aside, what’s been Isner’s downfall throughout his career is while he has a dominating serve, the rest of his game isn’t at the level it needs to be to compete with pros consistently in the top 20 in the world. The Prince Textreme Warrior 100 is a racquet perfectly suited to not only maintain his dominant service level, but rise the rest of his game as well. The Textreme Warrior 100 is built for maneuverability, stability, power, and precision. All the elements a player needs to get to the top of the game. You can find the John Isner racquet at Tennis Express and most any other tennis specialty shops.
