Injured John Isner set for a few weeks on the sidelines

John Isner disappointed

John Isner is likely to be out of action for more than a month after injuring his foot during the Miami Open final against Roger Federer over the weekend.

The American’s foot started to trouble him late in the first set and by the second set he was quite in a bit discomfort and eventually went down 6-1, 6-4.

After the match he explained: “I’m hoping it’s nothing, but we’ll see.

“It’s a terrible feeling, because you’re on an island out there, and you have no team-mates to hide behind and going up against the greatest player ever, playing in this incredible atmosphere, and my foot’s killing me.”

New York Times correspondent Christopher Clarey has since reported that that Isner will likely be on the sidelines for between four and six weeks due to a stress fracture.
