How did Monaco choke?
I wish that word could be censored. Clowns have no idea what it means.
You're so right on that.
Monaco struggled in almost every service game, or rather say Isner was into every return game (in the 2nd set he won more points on return than on serve in total, percentaged of course not) while Big John held easily so Monaco was under pressure all the time. He could have also got broken right at the start of the 2nd, then nobody would take about that "choke" here which wasn't one actually.
And by the way the first 2 MPs were saved with great play by Monaco (going to the net twice and once hitting a good overhead and the other time a good dropshot I think) so it's not like he went down without a fight, Isner was just better.
