Wimbledon R1: Gulbis def. Isner 7-5, 7-5, 6-7, 7-6

Expectedly tight match with the expected result. I thought Isner was going to realize the comeback. He fought all the way to a set point in the second tiebreak but Gulbis saved it quickly. Should be a good match presumably against Nadal.

Always a great day when Isner loses. Probably has the worst ground strokes of any player I've ever seen. Can't wait for his him to lose in the first round of Washington so he will be out of the top 100. Disgrace to the game.

Until the third set tie-break Gulbis dominated and Isner won only 10% of return points. But after losing that tie-break Gulbis seemed to be in danger, Isner had his chances.

Well done Ernie.

Now just enjoy your next match. Lots of hard hitting should do the trick.

Didn't see it (thanks BBCi) but from the score it must have been blood and thunder stuff. Shame it's Rafa next so soon - but at least we'll get to see the match.

Only a mug would say something so stupid. Look at his results.
