Re: A very warm welcome to the newest top 10 player: John Isner
Very hard worker and likeable individual so he deserves this achievement. His game when he first came on tour, club grounstrokes and world class serve. Now his forehand is a good shot which he can use to take advantage off the short replies generated from his serve.
As for his game what do people expect. He has the speed of Usain Bolt, the graceful movement of Federer, the determination of Nadal, radar consistency of Djokovic, the variation of Dolgopolov and volleys like Edberg.
He is a smart player and sound temperament, it's hard to get to his backhand which is the weaker side. Has good hands at the net and he isn't a clay clown at all.
“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
Machado wins 6-2 6-1
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
