Andreev saves 2 MP's to beat Isner 3-6 7-6(8) 7-5

Poor Isner: two match points in the tie-break, then break points in three consecutive games in the final set and 30-0 at 5:4.

LOL.

Isner had at least one break point for 3 of Andreev's service games in a row in the final set, one had 0/40 at *2-3 but couldn't convert

Igor converted on the first BP at 5-5

Andreev can't play return games against these "all serve guys". He has played in all 11 sets against Arthurs-Karlovic-Isner and had just 3 break points in all (1 converted, today against mega-mug Isner).

Sad result, but I was a bit surprised that Isner managed to do a pretty OK job in keeping himself in the baseline rallies with Andreev. Before the match I thought that Andreev will outrally Isner easily. Wasn't the case though.

Re: Andreev saves 2 MP's to beat Isner 3-6 7-6(8) 7-5

CLUTCH!!!

omg i think igor was about to burst out laughing on how he scrapped through those service games. how many aces and unreturnable serves did he dished out at those important moments? Unbelievable!

Igor didn't play well but credit to John. He was like a mountain whenever he had a chance to get to net. It was so difficult for Igor to pass him. The last few games, I think Igor finally woke up and instead of trying to go straight for winners, he pinned Isner to the baseline and rally with him, moving him side to side.

Re: Andreev saves 2 MP's to beat Isner 3-6 7-6(8) 7-5

Wow...Isner won in all departments but BP's! More points won, higher 1st serve percentage, more 1st and second serve points won, more winners, less UE's but he only converted 1 of 8 BP's

He should be proud of that

Re: Andreev saves 2 MP's to beat Isner 3-6 7-6(8) 7-5

American tennis at it's finest. A choke fest. But give Andreev credit, he kept coming up with huge serves on big points. If Isner could find a return game some where, he'd be dangerous. Right now he's a big serve and that's about it. He stayed in some rallies much better than I thought, but he just doesn't seem to be able to hurt anyone with that forehand unless it's a sitter.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Re: Andreev saves 2 MP's to beat Isner 3-6 7-6(8) 7-5

In the second set tie-break Andreev was all second serve but Isner kept moonballing playing right into Andreev's hands, he was very scared. Earlier in the match Isner had shown more aggression in the rallies.

Damn, two tough matches won for Andreev.

Good Stuff. Hope you can keep it up.
