IW QF John "Seriously, no more tiebreaks" Isner def Simon 6-3 1-6 7-5

So many unforced, but so many winners too.
Good volleys by Johniz.

Come on!!!!

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

John Isner defeated Gilles Simon 6-3,1-6,7-5

Well done, John.


He used very similar tactics against Simon as to the tactics that Ivanovic used to defeat weaponless Wozniacki.

Awful match. Very happy John got through, though.

Relatively expected. Nice week and a half for Simon, and hopefully he'll contend more later in the season and everyone on MTF won't crap all over him. Big John will have to get that pop/accuracy back on his serve and forehand to have a chance against Nole obv.

If I'm not mistaken, a win in the semi's combined with a Delpo loss tomorrow means that Isner would be into the top 10.

Gilles was so awful today. If he played the way he did against Harrison he would have won because John wasn't much better.

Well he did have a grueling 3 hour match yesterday, he looked very tired and sweaty, perhaps he had the virus as well.
At least he managed to breadstick the giant. And tenderize him for Nole.

The match played out as expected really, John's weapons pulled him though although they were misfiring for large portions of the match. Simon didn't serve well enough overall. If Simon served better I think he would have won. The night conditions made the court even slower and made it very hard for Isner to consistently play offense without missing but he started playing more strategical offensive tennis in the third set.

Competitive, mediocre quality match. John will play better vs Djokovic.
