(WC)Isner beats (26)Nieminen 6-7 7-6 7-6 6-4 to win first GS match

Good tie-break's player like Nieminen wasn't able to overcome "tie-break machine" Isner Isner served 34 aces and didn't lose service game (saved break points in four games).
Nieminen was two points away from winning 2nd (6:5, 30-0) and 3rd set (5:5 in the TB).

Exclamation Isner bounces Nieminen 6-7 7-6 7-6 6-4

Isner made the break with a backhand passing shot, Agassi style.

Great debut at the US Open.

Seems like he has a slight muscle strain or a little cramp because he keeps stretching it and is not sitting down at the change of ends. Shouldn't be anything to worry about.

(WC) John Isner d. (26) Jarkko Nieminen 6-7(4) 7-6(4) 7-6(5) 6-4

Excellent way for John to get his first win at a major.

John was really shaky in the first two sets but he picked up his game in a big way for the last two, even winning some rallies and cleaning up on his volleys.

34 aces from John and averaged 129 on his first serve and 115 on the second, maxed out at 143. John converted on his first break point opportunity and saved all 7 that he faced. He also had 2 MPs at *3-5 on Jarkko's serve (1/3 on BPs for the match).

Rik de Voest is next.

Well Isner showed that he still isn't scared of winning matches on a big stage.

Nieminen is a decent returner and he didn't break Isner in 23 tries, that's a good serve.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Congrats to a fellow Georgia Bulldog. His game style may not be my favorite- but kudos to him.

I like a lot of players.

Tough luck, Jakke.

John. This is a very exciting win for him. Nice to see that he got his nerves under control too.

Isner messed up (he meant to win this in a 5th set tiebreaker)

Disgrace for tennis that Jarkko lost to this guy. At least it was the only bad thing that happened today.

These guys take all the enjoyment out of tennis. After five years of watching Andy Roddick's boring game, along comes Isner who has even less to offer. Will Americans ever get another champion like Connors and McEnroe who can actually do something on a tennis court other than serve and wait for the tiebreaker? Come on Donald Young, step up. Save us from having to watch John Isner and Sam Querrey serve their way through every match.
