Seems something was wrong with Isner first set, couldn't win a point on his own first set.

2nd/3rd went 0/8bps

3rd had *40-30 for the tiebreak, and was broken from there. He did something similar against Monfils.

Isner :( Credit to Haase, I thought Isner would serve his way to the win after taking the 2nd set.

Good win for Haase. If he hadn't been injured for so long, he would have been top 50 at the very least.

He was top 50, in top 40 before he got injured... I guess his goal for next season, if he can stay fit :angel:, would be top 20 like Isner is now :D

His highest ranking was around 56ish, never was top 50...but he will surely get there!

Haha, exactly what I was thinking. It was close though!

Great to see Haase playing so well. I think he might well win the ATP Comeback Player of the Year award this time.

This is a very good victory for Robin. He might face Djokovic in 1/4 which would be a very good test for him to see how he develops against this kind of players.

Isner should go play in challengers. That way he can finally string some wins together and stop looking like a clown. His 70-68 set against Mughut tells you all you need to know about what kind of player he really is.

Isner needs to drop about 40 lbs. He will look disgustingly thin, but at least he'll be able to run more and rally with these bums and develop more variety in his game.
