US Open Day 7: John Isner (and Sam Querrey) Imagines That Night Matches on Louis Armstrong Are a Capital Idea


is the fourth round the 2018 US Open.

It is also the day that John Isner, the No. 11th-seeded tennis player in the world and the highest ranked U.S. player, makes his debut on the court of the new Louis Armstrong Stadium at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in the borough of Queens in New York City.

During a breakfast press conference last week at The Tuscany, a St Giles Hotel in Manhattan, Isner and fellow American player, Sam Querrey,  gave a thumbs up to scheduled night matches on Armstrong.

Isner disclosed that he was not aware of this development but says "it makes a lot of sense."

Both players also shared their feelings (like it) about the service timeclock that is has been introduced at this year's open.

And they revealed some things about themselves that they believe most people may not know. And they spoke about players they admired when they were up and  coming.

Though Isner's match against Canadian Milos Raonic is slated for the afternoon, it can theoretically go into the night.

The dedicated night match on Armstrong, however, is a doubles meetup: American brothers Christian and Ryan Harrison take on Radu Albot of Moldova and Malek Jaziri of Tunisia.
