DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — John Isner says he’ll skip the Australian Open because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Isner disclosed his decision Monday night after losing to fellow American Sebastian Korda in the quarterfinals of the Delray Beach Open. Isner is 35, has two young children and says he wanted his family to travel together. But he says that’s not possible because of the virus, and going to Australia this year would have meant too much time away from his family. Isner, a former top 10 player now ranked 25th, lost to Korda 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.
