However, before the match began, Isner seemed pretty confident about the new year and the concept of the ATP Cup. The leader of the USA squad was pretty hopeful about team USA’s chances.

“The players are behind it. (It’s)  a brand new event, unchartered territory for the ATP to have an event like this. So, to be a part of the first-ever edition of it is pretty special. So, for the timing, for me, I like it a lot.”

It is pretty clear that John Isner is pretty excited for the ATP Cup and for the new season.

What Is Next For Isner And Team USA?

John Isner is a pretty experienced campaigner now. The past few months have not been too good for the American giant. However, he will look to turn things around in 2020.

Talking about the ATP Cup, the start was hard as expected for team USA. They lost to a relatively inexperienced and weaker Norwegian team. Now, they’ll be up against the Russians in Perth.

Led by Daniil Medvedev and the in-form Karen Khachanov, the task seems cut out for the Americans. Isner will hope he can pull a rabbit out of his hat and see his team through.

Do you think Team USA can put up a fight against Team Russia?
