Racquet Required: Congrats on winning Newport and welcome to Boston. You’ve played with the Lobsters for the last couple years. Do you know the area well? What do like to do here?
John Isner: I do know the area pretty well. I’m hoping to play golf since I’m playing here again tomorrow.
RR: Boston is known for its professional sports teams (the Bruins, Red Sox), have you gotten a chance to go to any games?
JI: Yeah, actually, I got to go to game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals.
RR: You’re pretty active on twitter and you tweet a lot about wrestling. How did you come to love it?
JI: It’s something that I’ve loved since I was little, and I get a lot of grief about it, but it’s something I just love.
RR: What would your wrestling name be?
JI: I don’t know, I don’t know. It’s something I would have to think about.
RR: Since you play for the Lobsters, just a few questions any self-respecting Bostonian would know. What a bubbler?
JI: A beer?
RR: It’s a water fountain. What are jimmies?
JI: Um, a sandwich?
RR: No, no they’re sprinkles. What year did the Red Sox end the curse of the Bambino?
RR: Nice! Can you give us your best Boston accent?
JI: No, no I can’t say anything like that.
