4th has happened for the first time in ATP!
:worship: :worship:

:rocker2:
Isner said after QF:
"I never imagined I would be put in a situation like I've been four times in a row. It's been remarkable. I don't get nervous out there, my opponent is the one under pressure... I won matches easier in college. I'm usually successful in tie breaks... I've been tired but I somehow keep finding my second wind."

1 Henman 4-6 6-4 7-6(4) - 18 aces
2 Becker 3-6 7-5 7-6(6) - 30 aces
3 Odesnik 6-7(4) 7-6(3) 7-6(2) - 31 aces
Q Haas 6-4 6-7(6) 7-6(5) - 30 aces
S Monfils 6-7(4) 7-6(1) 7-6(2) - 23 aces

Why? Haas doesn't have a good record against Karlovic either, so it wasn't so unexpected for Isner to win :p
I was a bit dissapointed when i thought he'll win 6-4 7-6, but he got it in the right way again :cool:

I know, Haas also lost two "tie-break" matches to Arthurs so for me it is not a surprise. Extraordinary is the fact that Isner won 4th match 7-6 in the third. I think it is the first case in history of tennis.

How is this kid's game other than his serve? Good for him holding his nerve to win the tiebreak. There are veterans who would have cracked under the pressure.

EDIT: never mind- found my answers on the other threads;)

Lol

He won't be able to win a single match on clay and players like Nadal or Murray won't have a single problem in beating him on a fast surface.

(I'm not a fan of Nadal and Murray btw)

Very exciting match! I like this kid^s nerves of steel. He seems to have a good net game and good groundies too. Hope he makes it as a top pro. This was only his second pro tournament.

It is fuckin unreal but next Monfils or Safin - both players with good serve so I think 5th tie-break in the third set is probable :eek:

Monfils is capable of breaking him. If he plays well, which is always a doubt...

Of course but something like 7-6 2-6 7-6 is still probable.
