John Isner reached the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event at Indian Wells last week, propelling him back into the Top 10 in the rankings for the first time since 2012.
The two-time Winston-Salem Open champion currently sits at No. 10 on the ATP chart, one spot off of his career-high ranking of No. 9.
“I have gotten back in (the Top 10) with not great results from the slams, so there are some areas with my [ranking] where I can gain a lot of points going forward from here,” said Isner. “It’s up to me to go after that and try to do it.”
Isner put on a strong performance in Indian Wells, pushing eventual champion Novak Djokovic in the semis before succumbing in three sets. He now travels to Miami for the ATP Masters 1000 event that starts this week, looking to further improve on his ranking.
