Paris SF: Tsonga Def. Isner 3-6 7-6(1) 7-6(3)

Everyone who can reach him. Please. Give. John. A hug.

Clutchga saved 3 match points. Bring on the ultimate tennis challenge.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Paris SF: Stronga/Clownga/Tsonga saves 4 MPs, def. Isner 3-6, 7-6(1), 7-6(3)

Patchy quality of tennis, but very dramatic match with some great clutch (and very unclutch ) play.

That was an absolutely fucking terrible performance from John when it really mattered. No way around it.

Isner donated 2 tiebreaks and wasted 7-8 bp.s incl 3 mp.s and that was that..

Isner great tiebreak-player huh.

Tsonga almost had a disastrous last game, Isner had a chance on more than one of those match points to go for it. After that he got overwhelmed by Tsonga and the crowd.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Isner played this match like he hoped for the errors from his opponent to win,while Tsonga who was playing way below average wanted to win it

Isner is below Futures level stamina-wise.
