Paris R1: Isner Def. Falla 4-6 7-6(10) 7-5 (Saves 3 Match Points)



Saved 3 MP's in the TB, and saved 2 BP's serving at *3-4 in the 3rd set. Awesome effort

Nearly the same as what Gasquet did to Isner last week

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Typical Isner, this is his career, one week loses a winning match, the other wins a losing one.
Surprisingly served only 17 aces on the fast court No 1.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Thanks for the cash, Johnny!

Tennis must be in a bad state when someone like Isner is a top 40 player. Those "10 meters in the air, landing 5 meters behind the baseline" forehands made me truly laugh.

yes but a lot of service winners from Isner. I refer to very hard serves to return touched by Falla, and cause that cant be called aces

Serving poles like Dr.Ivo and Mr. Isner should be banned from tennis, it's killing the game

It's amazing how Karlovic has actually beaten Federer, and Isner has actually beaten Roddick

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Sad days indeed when machine guns like these win tennis matches.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

He has the groundies of a player ranked in the 300s, not in the top 40.
