Shanghai R16: Troicki def. Isner 6-4 7-6 (4)

Troiki was 43/44 on 1st serve points won. That's the worst return of serve performance I have ever seen from a top 20 player. Isner should be ashamed of that effort. A mug like Troiki doing that. Pathetic.

Thiem did something similar against Ferrer in Cincy and that's worst.

Isner should've lost to Lajovic already, was lucky to be in the tournament. Probably end of the line for Troicki, I don't see how he would beat Del Potro.

Absolutely NID, Troicki is a great returner + server, simply an awful match-up for Isner. Has never beaten him outside the US and his best surface, clay. Here, the conditions are as bad as it gets for Isner and vice versa for Troicki, Bot hasn't even broken his opponent once in his three matches, only the insane muggerey in TBs of his previous opponents has made him get thus far.

Isner has been injured and he should have been out earlier. Lajovic's choke was insane.
Easy money.

John the Man already peaked for Laver Cup, a.k.a. the most important event after The Open. If I were him I'd want to get the hell out of China too. Americans from God's country are too used to clean air.

19/22 (86%) actually, which is horrible against Ferrer obviously, but nowhere near as bad as 43/44 (98%)

You could have picked his match against Raonic in Cinci 2016 instead, where he managed to win 2 of 31 first serve return points

3/22 against Ferrer is worst than 2/31 against Raonic.

Probably, but I thought we were talking about absolute percentages. And 94 is way higher than 86

Edit: nvm, I read the OP now and got what you meant to say. Thiem's returning performance against Ferrer was just pathetic, 14% of 1st and 12% () of 2nd serve return points won is just a complete joke, I have no clue what was going on with him there.

I'm handing them out more lately, but once again I feel like throwing out the classic.....

Troicki seems to be on one of those random runs. Most had him losing to Shapovalov in R1, never mind beating Thiem and Isner.

Hope del Potro ends this madness in the QF.

Why? Troicki is better than all 3.

He's now 3-0 against Thiem and Shapovalov isn't even good.

NID results

Troicki is now 5-3 against Isner, 3-0 against Thiem, and 1-0 against Shapovalov. He's 9-3 against them.

As said, NID.
