The tournament is by no means missing John. If John had entered, he would have eventually run into Delpo where he would have been destroyed in straight set, and we would have been robber of watching Tim Smyczek. When are you going to get this through your head: aces mean next to nothing when the rest of your game is below average. If he's this good, why does he only have 5 titles? Why is his career record 165-109? Why hasn't he won a slam yet? Isner deserves to be a pro, but you're VASTLY overrating him.
