Wimbledon R1: Istomin def. Kohlschreiber 4-6 6-3 6-3 6-3

1-7 in Istomin's last 8 matches. What a huge win, he served amazing. Around 65% first serve percentage and over 85% of 1st serves won. A ton of winners too! Of course a tough loss for Kohli, who had almost the perfect preparation dominating Halle

Kohlschreiber disappoints once again. Probably would have been better if Federer had played in Halle and defeated him early on.
All that hope after his Halle victory for nothing.

Typical indeed .. wins tournament and loses to someone who cannot win a match, gets a win over better ranked player and loses to worse one in next round!

That's an awful result especially after Halle. I thought he might make 3rd-4th round here

I did think Istomin could be dangerous, just not enough to win

Disappointing result, as this would have hurt Istomin's ranking to lose. Hopefully Mardy takes him out and he continues to struggle, and falls from the top 100.

As for Kohli, just failing to deliver when it really matters, like usual, but Istomin playing well is a tough match-up for Kohli, and he deserves credit for this win.

Craptastic. Kohlschreiber winning the preparation-mickey mouse and then bolting out in the 1rnd of the GS. :worship: :stupid:

Congrats to Istomin!

This is why Kohl isn't in the top 20 and Chela is...

cabbage writer must be shattered, sorry for him.

It's not craziness, it's called wanting Istomin out of the top 100. This result keeps him there a little longer, which isn't a good thing.

This result isn't as bad as people make out, though. Kohli isn't that special and Istomin isn't garbage and made R3 here last year and also almost beat Rafa on grass in Queens.

I like this result and I like Istomin when his game is on.

But i don't like that tournament winners of the preparing tournaments for the slams always lose in 1st round.

That's really really annoying.

Even the surface is nearly the same (not like Hertogenbosch) in Halle.

Kohlschreiber is terrible. Istomin is terrible too.

I've just read in German media that Kohli was injured, he has teared his groin already at the Halle final according to this:

^^ thanks for the link, Chaz. Explains a lot. Here's hoping for a quick and full recovery, and not a reprise of the DelPotro-horror...

Good to Istomin winning again. Good player to watch when he is playing well.

Oopsie, yeah. Well then there is good chance it won't be all too serious. At least I hope so.

Istomin has been pretty cruddy lately, but he's had injuries. He was hugely impressive last year at Wimbledon imo, took Berdy to 5 sets.

Yeah he said he's taking a MRI this week.

wouldn't rate the fact too high that kohli says he has an injury
if someone hasn't realized it yet, he always has an injury when he loses at slams

dude i am shocked by this result, did not expect this at all.... hope Istomin was playing amazing because it would really be sad if Kohls does what he always does and just fizzled out at Wimbledon. soo much wasted talent

This is just funny. Kohlschreiber pulling an Almagro, winning an event before a major and then losing early.

Kholi is in doubt for DC tie because of his adductor injury according to l'Equipe
