Miami r2: Isner def Dodig 4-6 7-5 7-6 (5)

What a call. My god, and I thought Vik Troicki was robbed earlier. I have never seen a decision that bad, umpire needs to be suspended. For those who didn't see, umpire ordered a replay of point at 6-5 ad out on a serve that Isner tipped but was almost an ace, had zero play on.

And also a nice lack of umpiring earlier at 6-4 *4-3 40-40 when Isner toweled off between Dodig's serves one point after Dodig yelled about how much time he was taking.

Man should never be allowed near a tennis court again.

Isner played an atrocious 1st set and most of the 2nd set, totally listless and looked stressed and bored, then Dodig got gimped up, Isner woke up somehow, charged through the 2nd (coming back from a break down) and in the 3rd they split breaks, Dodig broke at the end of the set then served for the match but the umpire totally robbed him on a line call (making him serve again when it should have been a clear ace),

Isner broke to stay alive over Dodig's frustration.. then took the tiebreak 7-5 (topsy turvy breaker) Dodig physically hurting in the end.

A really bizarre match, finished by Isner wanting to serve with a specific tennis ball.

Isner LOST this match. I don't care what the scoreboard says, the victory was taken out of Dodig's hands by the umpire and handed to Isner. As of now, Isner is not taking part in a sports event this week in my book. His name might be in the draw, but it has ZERO meaning.

Hopefully he gets destroyed by his next opponent. The sooner people realize that these are the type of guys tennis really needs to be saved from, the better.

Dodig, what a loser. Worst serve performance ive seen from isner in ages, breakes 4 times and still cant make it.

Indeed very bad call at that 6-5 game, but I liked how he gave isner a warning on match. its ridiculous how players take forever and then blaiming it on the ball boys because theyve only had a look at 5 balls.

didnt think it was possible but i disrespect isner even more now

There seems to be so much inconsistency with these umpires around points like that, why don't they organise a course for these morons so unfair on Dodig (and he needs the prize money a lot more than Isner). Can you imagine that happening to Fish or Roddick or Isner himself they would have got ten times angrier.

You guys overreacting. Bad calls happen all the time in tennis. This is part of the game. If not hawk-eye, we even wouldnt know if ball was out or in.Most of pro tennis is played on courts without hawk-eye anyway, so players have to just forget about bad calls and go on.

It wasnt on matchpoint after all, it didnt even decide the game, Dodig got new 1-st serve.And even after the break he had all tiebreaker to get his act together, but he couldnt.

Mentally stronger player wouldnt fold like cheap tent after one bad call.Dodig did.No wonder he cant win a match in Davis Cup ...

This was not just some bad call, umpire either doesn't know the rules, or he wasnt paying attention at all, on such a important point, thats unforgivable. Surely this should be the last match of his carrer.

And ofcourse it decided the game, it's very likely that Dodig would win that game after another duece, with saving 3MPs already.

What a great contribution. Isner was actually hitting the ball pretty well, and was fighting really hard. And as I said earlier, there is no reason to blame Isner for the umpire´s mistake. Most of the pros would have reacted exactly like Isner did. Oh, and your personal hate-list is hardly relevant.

You're most certainly right about the umpire, but not conceding a point of that sort is something that a semi-decent guy would not do. It's that form of unsportsmanship that i was pointing out, mentioning my '''hate list'' ;)
Isner is a boring serve bot and that is a well known fact by anybody. His average hitting is barely a top 100.. I understand your remark, but that's just my opinion.

You ain't kidding. Overall, so far this year, the quality of tennis hasn't been as great as it has happen compared to the previous years. I mean, I'm pretty happy for my favs getting some good results like Nole and Nadal, whose back in winning ways. Federer especially has been horrendous, but I guess it's age catching up with him. Tsonga's win in Marseille was great - probably the highlight of my year so far, but other than that he's sort of sucked elsewhere. But regardless of whether the results of my favs are good or bad, the quality of tennis across the spectrum so far isn't something to celebrate about.
