John Isner to Play for New York Empire in 2017The New York Empire presented by Citi have selected Mylan World TeamTennis veteran and ATP World Tour No. 23-ranked John Isner as its marquee player for the 2017 summer season.
The 6-foot-10 Isner will play his seventh consecutive season of WTT and his first with the New York Empire. The 31-year-old Isner is originally from Greensboro, N.C., and is a member of the U.S. Davis Cup team. He has won 10 singles and three doubles titles on the ATP World Tour. He achieved a career-high ranking of World No. 9 in singles (April 2012) and No. 26 in doubles (April 2012). Isner has served more than 5,000 aces during his career.
“I have had some memorable moments at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center so it’s great to play there this summer for the New York Empire,” said Isner. “There’s no venue in tennis that matches the energy level and excitement of playing in New York City. The competition in World TeamTennis is intense and I love the pressure of playing on a team. It’s an awesome atmosphere for both the players and fans.”
Tickets start as low as $10 for children age 16-and-under, and $20 for adults. The venue includes both reserved box seats and general admission seating, along with hospitality packages, which include a limited number of VIP tables with food and beverage service.
Individual match tickets will go on sale later this spring. To purchase season tickets or to get more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the New York Empire office at (844) 5-EMPIRE (844-536-7473).
