John Isner Officially Signs With Prince Sports, Inc.
September 4, 2007
Bordentown, NJ – September 4, 2007 –- Prince has big news to share…literally. After years of playing with their racquets, John Isner, the six foot, nine inch American up-and-comer has officially signed with the industry leader. By making the partnership official, the 22 year-old Isner becomes the latest addition to a growing and impressive list of touring pros choosing Prince and taking advantage of O3 racquet technology.
Isner, who graduated from the University of Georgia this past May plays the O3 White, using it to capture the 2007 NCAA team title for the Bulldogs and more recently to make a run to the finals of the Legg Mason Classic in D.C. Last week, Isner gained the attention of fans around the world by showing off his huge game en route to a third round appearance in his first ever US Open.
“The past few days have been surreal,” said Isner. “I came into the Open not knowing what to expect and I left capturing my first Grand Slam win, getting the chance to play on Arthur Ashe Stadium court against the world’s #1 and signing with Prince – it has been awesome. Prince has been a huge factor in my recent success – both at Georgia and in my short time on tour. As with nearly every other player who has made the switch to an O3 racquet, my game has improved. I have become more consistent from the baseline and have increased the speed of my serve by a few miles per hour. It is exciting to make the partnership official and become part of the team.”
Isner joins other players such as Mike and Bob Bryan, Marion Bartoli, Jelena Jankovic, Sam Querrey and Shahar Peer, all of whom have decided to switch to an O3 frame. In fact, in only two short years, close to 100 ATP and WTA players have made the switch to the new racquet technology, capturing over 260 tour titles and 10 Grand Slams.
