Cincy R2 - Isner's retirement
It was a somehow hollow and sudden way to finish the match, with John Isner hurting his ankle 5-3 up in the first set, that later led to his retirement at 0-30 5-4 serving for the first set. Normally match reports are a good way of describing how a match led to its conclusion, but there never really was a conclusion here.

David won the toss and elected to serve first, repeating the same mistake as he did in his match against Ljubicic, broken immediately with bad errors. A poor approach shot, bad forehand error and double fault cost him the loss of serve. It seems like after all this time, from his comeback, David still hasn't really found a solution to these sluggish starts. This poor game, seemed to be a deciding factor in the first set, as David never got close to Isner's serve.

In the first three service games, Isner barely missed any first serves. But even when Isner started throwing in more second serves, David was still having a lot of trouble with it bouncing up so high. No one really knows what would have happened had the match gone on any longer, and had it gone to another set, where David wouldn't have had to play from a break down the whole way.

After the initial break of serve, both players held comfortably, to the point where it became obvious that David must have really played a terrible service game to lose his serve first up. Because he didn't have to do much to get Isner moving in all the other service games.

After Isner came back from the injury time-out, he was visibly struggling, not making any attempt to hit the majority of points. Perhaps he was hoping he could serve out the set anyway, but once he went down 0-30, he called it a day. Unlike last week, I guess David will be quite fresh heading into tomorrow's match against Djokovic.

I was at the match. John landed badly on his ankle after a point on Nalby's serve, called for the trainer, who wrapped up his ankle. He tried his hardest to finish Nalby's game and try and at least serve out the set, even though it was pretty obvious he was in pain, he was just not trying very hard to go for some really easy shots. He served twice and Nalby returned them and he just couldn't play anymore. Here's a pic from the match...
