Trivial Update - Serving Up Isner

#ThursdaysRTrivial ep. 49 coming up right after this PSA: Roger Federer wishes he could bark like Big John.

#ThursdaysRTrivial episode 49 "Barking in London". Welcome to the strawberries and cream edition of the Twitter Twivia show that's always served with a side of Dawg. REPLY back your answer for a chance at a fabulous prize. Of course you know John Isner was a star at UGA and may even remember he was the 1 seed in the 2007 NCAA Tournament. But do you know who defeated the top Dawg?

The former Dawg tennis star did a lot as an ambassador for the University of Georgia this week, so it was time to show some love back. Although the end of Isner's run was anti-climatic (and how could it not be without a trophy...?), his stardom is now in line with his game. He'll soon be a top ten player and there's few people worldwide who follow tennis and don't know his name.

And if they watched any of his interviews, they also know he knows a thing or two about hunkering down 'tween the hedges as well as on the court.

We had one contestant who toyed with a serve right down the middle and it surely would've been an ace. But instead it hit the tape...

But Nama's fresh off a stellar run on an Atlanta circuit in T2:
@BernieDawg Somdev Devvarman was the one who beat Isner. Some one probably beat me but figured I would chime in!

Well done buddy! Enjoy the old school Dawg tee, the same one John was rockin' while talking to tv journalists around the world. Somdev even won the next year as well. Forced those Wahoos to retire his tennis gear in infamy.

For the rest of you, here's a nice interview with Isner's mom where she gives a nice shout-out to the Dawg Nation.
