John Isner, who has lost the last five five-set matches he has played—including one to Spain’s Nicolas Almagro last week in Davis Cup—tells ESPN.com that he is unsure why that's the case. "I guess the good news is I don't have any more five-set matches this year,” he said. “I'll start again in Melbourne next year and hope for better."
