I thought John was done and dusted after dropping serve 3 times in the breaker. Really good job to keep the ball in play and draw some shaky errors from Kevin that kind of choked there..

Isner moonballing (the change-up in the tiebreak) is what won him the match. They were both just smacking the ball at each other. But Kevin has a MP on serve, Isner moonballed it back to Kevin, and Kevin made the error, putting them back on serve.

Strategy :worship:

What a match, 3 tie-breaks, no break of serve and Isner had 78% FS in over 3tie-breakers match.

Can anyone give the details about the match?

-When did Isner save MPs (what score was it)?
-Who was serving then?
-Did anybody serve for the match?
