John Isner speaks to the media after his 7-6(6), 6-7(5), 6-7(9), 6-4, 26-24 defeat against Kevin Anderson

Q. Maybe a stupid question, but how are you feeling?
JOHN ISNER: I feel pretty terrible. My left heel is killing me. I have an awful blister on my right foot. I've felt better before. You know, a few days' rest, maybe more than that, and I'll recoup and try to get all healed up again.

Q. I was wondering, Kevin Anderson said after the match he thought maybe it was time for a fifth-set tiebreak.
JOHN ISNER: I agree with Kevin. I personally think a sensible option would be 12-All. Can't finish them off, if one person can't finish the other off before 12-All, then do a tiebreaker there. I think it's long overdue. I mean, I'm a big part of that, a big part of this discussion, of course.

Q. At a tournament that you described as formerly being a house of horrors, how would you describe what you're feeling in your head and heart as you're reaching the semifinals?
JOHN ISNER: Yeah, pure elation right now. Very, very happy to be in this position right now in the semifinals. With how I'm feeling physically and mentally, I'm in a very good spot. I think I can keep doing damage here.

This is amazing. It's by far the best Grand Slam I've ever played in my career, and I've been playing for 11 years. I'm super happy. To do it here at Wimbledon makes it even a little bit more special.

Q. How does it feel getting into the quarterfinals and into this room?

Q. This is your first time in the second week of Wimbledon.
JOHN ISNER: I know.

Q. Does that feel like a long time coming for you?
JOHN ISNER: It does, considering I have lost a lot of close third-round matches. Cilic comes to mind. Tsonga, as well. So very satisfied right now to be in the second week and also have two days off. That's nice.

John Isner speaks to the media after his 6-1, 6-4, 6-7(6), 6-7(3), 7-5 win against Ruben Bemelmans

Q. Talk a little bit about the match. Layover.
JOHN ISNER: Yeah, it was tough match. I mean, I have of course been in this situation before where the match has not finished, and I'm not just talking about 2010. It's been other times, as well, at this event.

But that's not all that uncommon with how it can rain and whatnot. But certainly didn't sleep like a baby last night. You know, when you're up two sets and 4-0 in the third set tiebreaker and you let that slip through, it's tough. A lot of stuff goes through your head.

John Isner speaks to the media after his 6-2, 7-6(4), 7-5 win against Yannick Maden

Q. How happy are you with your performance today?
JOHN ISNER: I'm pretty happy. I think possibly it could have been more straightforward. But all in all, I mean, I was off the court in three sets, and, you know, I hadn't played a match on grass coming into this tournament. I didn't play a warmup event. I decided to stay home and rest and rebuild and just work on my body and my game a little bit.

Even though I have been hitting the ball well in practice and doing all the right things, that doesn't always translate to the match court. So I knew today was going to be tough. The conditions were tough, as well.

Happy to get through.
