John Isner’s tennis performances have seen a constant improvement in the past few years. He has become America’s top tennis player. However, his happiness has not been restricted to the tennis court. His personal life has also grown by leaps and bounds. Let’s take a deeper look at John Isner and Madison McKinley’s relationship.
When Did John and Madison meet?
Madison has grown up in Texas and graduated from The Episcopal School of Dallas.
Their first meeting was an interesting series of events. It was the year 2011. John Isner was playing with his friend Sam Querry at the US Men’s Clay Court Championship in Houston, Texas. Madison was watching the match with her friends. After the match got over, Madison and her friends wanted a photo with their favourite players. However, they denied the request and instead asked the company to go out with them!
Interestingly, John was not supposed to play in the event. The 6 foot 10 American star had no interest in playing doubles and was only there because he had lost his singles match earlier in the day. It seems like that one loss gave John the greatest gift of his life!
John and Madison started developing interest in each other and both started to talk on text. However, their stars would align once again to arrange a second meeting. Madison was gifted a trip to London at the same time that Isner was in the city for Wimbledon!
As soon as he got off the plane, John met Madison for a drink at the local pub. Madison later described Isner as “goofy and a big goober.” Things got pretty serious quickly as Madison decided to stay there for an extra week.
When Did John Isner And Madison McKinley Get Married?
John and Madison got married in December 2017 and Madison officially became John Isner’s wife. Isner proposed to his girlfriend at the Saint Mary’s Church a day before their six-year anniversary. Initially, John wanted to propose to her at the same pub in which they had met in London.
Isner and Madison tied the knot in a country themed wedding at the Montage Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina.
The couple welcomed their first child, Hunter Grace Isner, in September 2018. Their second child was born in October 2019. The couple named the boy John Hobbs Isner.
Isner has confessed that having a happy family has helped him improve his game. The American is currently ranked number
19 in the world rankings. He will try to pile up some victories to get around the top 10 contentions again.
