By John Evenson

The ATP World Tour will take over the the Delray Beach Tennis Open by the Venetian Las Vegas on Monday, and the # 1 player in the country, and the # 1 seed, John Isner says he's ready to get into the groove.

"I haven't really practices that much since the Australian Open," admits Isner, " so I'm just trying to get fit, just get the feel of putting hours on the court."

Isner says he loves player at Delray, an easy drive from his home in Tampa, and that he should be in for a challenge with the talent he'll be facing this week. Win or lose he says he's using the tournament to build for later in the year.

"I want to win this tournament, but if that doesn't happen so be it."John Isner hoping to make the most of Delray Beach Open
