:worship: :yeah:

Saved 3 MP's in the TB, and saved 2 BP's serving at *3-4 in the 3rd set. Awesome effort :)

Nearly the same as what Gasquet did to Isner last week :p

tennis dying out slowly, but painfully with such matches

Typical Isner, this is his career, one week loses a winning match, the other wins a losing one.
Surprisingly served only 17 aces on the fast court No 1.

Tennis must be in a bad state when someone like Isner is a top 40 player. Those "10 meters in the air, landing 5 meters behind the baseline" forehands made me truly laugh.

yes but a lot of service winners from Isner. I refer to very hard serves to return touched by Falla, and cause that cant be called aces

Serving poles like Dr.Ivo and Mr. Isner should be banned from tennis, it's killing the game:sad:

It's amazing how Karlovic has actually beaten Federer, and Isner has actually beaten Roddick :o

Sad days indeed when machine guns like these win tennis matches.

Isner's not as bad as Karlovic. He actually has good groundies.

He has the groundies of a player ranked in the 300s, not in the top 40.

His groundies can be very good.

His groundies can be very good.Agreed. Against Roddick in NY his groundies were awesome as a whole.

Karlovic and Isner are pretty much the same kind of player, but Isner is more patient and that's why he wins some matches he should lose ;)

Stop complaining, fanboys.

The serve is the most important shot of the game.

its nothing alike

Nope.

Actually, their difference is that Karlovic serves and volleys on first serves and Isner doesn't.

Ivo's first serve is definitely better than Isner's.

But I think Isner's 2nd serve is better. He can be alot braver with it.

I'd rather watch Ivo any day. at least you get to see plenty of great volleys. a bit of airfucking or the smack that ass victory dance too if you're lucky
