Asked at the end of our interview how he feels about making the most of himself over the next bunch of seasons, the 23-year-old Norrie responds, “I am lucky to be traveling the world and playing tennis for a living. ... I am grateful to be where I am right know and trying to make the most of it. Everything is going my way and that is how I want to keep it. I don’t ever want to get ahead of myself.”
The ATP Tour provided the world with an update about John Isner's post-Miami injury. John discusses the silver lining: getting to spend time with his six-month-old daughter, Hunter Grace.
“It helps so much. She takes up a lot of my time even though I can’t really do that much. I have to be off my feet,” Isner told ATPTour.com. “I just actually fed her sitting on the couch and had a lot of fun doing that. But it certainly takes my mind off the injury. Sitting here right now I have nothing to complain about whatsoever. I’m keeping a very positive mindset on all of this because life is pretty good.”
CURATED Magazine got John Isner's best tips for a Wimbledon vacation in their Spring/Summer 2019 edition, and highlighted our sister company, Grand Slam Tennis Tours.
