Eventually some of the clueless people on here will quit making Karlovic comparisons (just because they're both tall and white) and realize that Big John can really move and play from the baseline now. An easy three setter for Isner in his first round match at Roland Garros is no surprise to me...

Easy win. I expected a three set match but maybe a tiebreak or two, expected a little bit more of a challenge. Good job Johnny!

John has improved immensely, more than a year ago he could barely withstand a 3 shot rally. Now only he has more variety in disposal, but also he's become one of the biggest fighters in the ATP circuit.

The tough Davis Cup tie with Serbia on clay continues to pay dividends for Izzy and Querrey.

So nice to see

Great to see Isner carrying his clay form into the big one. He has good chances of going deep here.

Could be USA's best RG in years.

He's no better than Karlo, unless you're one of the clueless people who haven't noticed he has also improved in the mentioned areas about the time he cracked top 20, which was a long while ago. Well, there the BH, but that's about it.
