Isner skips brother's wedding for Newport title
John Isner says he skipped his brother Nathan’s wedding in Virginia because he reached the final four of Newport. The American won his first title of the year at the grass court tournament on Sunday. He was offered a wild card into the tournament. "I told myself I was going to take the offer here and the only way I was going to miss the wedding was if I got to the semifinals," Isner told reporters. "If I’m in the semis, that’s great. It’s going to stink that I’m going to miss the wedding, but if I’m not in the semis, I can make the wedding. It definitely turned out to be a great decision...I’m paying for his honeymoon. He understands. His fiancée, his wife now, maybe not."
