Two giant servebots out within an hour of each other! Thank you to David G and Stevie J.
Isner really sucks the life out of any match he plays. 馃槵

Isner with 52 aces, but his ground game and movement are really just shambles compared to his peak.

Johnson is a down-to-earth guy, I loved the interview he did after the match.

The only even 1% threat to Djoker is now gone

Djokovic may only lose 0-2 sets between now and SF, where only Tsitsipas can pose a challenge

Better player progressed. Johnson now won 5 straight matches against Isner and 6-4 H2H vs. Isner. Isner last won against Johnson more than 5 years ago.

Isner must be the crappiest player on tour by far, absolutely shit in every single department bar the serve, even Karlovic has good net play at least. This guy is brutally shit, Johnson played with no 1st serve in the tiebreak but couldn't matter less, Isner hit everything possible inside the back of the net or outside the court.

You beat me to it.His potential 4th round & Quarter Final opponents now shown the door.Last thing Novak wants is these guys to tree on a good day with no pressure from the 'crowd'.

Isner made a desperate attempt to jag it at 6-5 up in the 5th by taking Johnson to deuce many times but couldn't do it.Good,because there was a chance of Isner winning a 5 set match without breaking serve ONCE in the match.Apparently 52 aces wasn't good enough to get the job done and he mucked up the tiebreak that really mattered after taking the other 2.

Yes Johnson had to come up real clutch to save that 5-6 game

For Djokovic to lose to anyone other than Tsitsipas before the F would be a huge upset

Yep... and let us all not forget that he's only defending 180 points from his 4th round retirement from Wawrinka last year so he'll be playing with 'house money'.More points,more distance in the rankings and Federer's 310 is all but shattered.

Good win for Johnson. Can be frustrating to lose the tiebreaks and win sets with breaks, final TB made it for him.

God fucking damnit! How the fuck do you lose in the first round to a guy with no backhand who isn鈥檛 even as good as he was years ago? Absolute fucking garbage result and now I practically have no one to root for.
