Stan hasn't done sh*t all season, TBH, so it's not like Isner beat Stan at his best. It seemed as if Stan didn't even want to move his feet.

Still, Stan likes to show up for the majors so this tells me nothing about his form for the French.

Isner beats Cilic....its like pulling for the less of two evils. I hated that John won but it kept Cilic away from gaining in the rankings....he doesn't deserve it.

 

Sasha wins again and vaults over Sock to a new high ranking of #14. Sasha vs Isner in the semis.......

I haven't really really being following Cilic's results in quite sometime so I can't guess anything about his form, except that maybe he's been doing enough to maintain his ranking somehow.

 

As for that Sascha vs Isner match up? Hmm, that could be an interesting match. Sascha is definitely on the rise and he won't be intimidated by Isner or his height, that's for sure.

They played already this year in Miami where Isner had match points and lost in 3 sets. It was when the Bozo(Gimblestob), his former coach, was commenting on the match and gushing all over him thinking he was going to win. Sasha leads the head to head 2-0.

Hoooo, that Thiem backhand was an axe today and it chopped down Rafa's hopes in this tournament!

 

The NextGen young men are having a good run at this tournament and Thiem and Zverev seem to be showing the way this week!

The Thiem / Isner match will be a snooze fest...I've never really understood Isner.  Painful to watch...I'm only 5'7 so I've struggled with serve my whole life....so it's especially irritating to see someone that tall ever hit the net on serve.  Crack up every time he double faults.

I thought Isner played Zverev next, no?  

 

Gotta check the Order of Play.

Oops you're correct....I looked at the wrong side.  Well, repeat the above anyway.  Zverev/Isner will be a snooze fest...LOL.

Lord get some reading glasses Fevuh....LOL.  Actually the match between Zverev and Isner was entertaining in Miami. But I agree that John's game is one note....his serve and that's it. If Sasha can move John around the court he should win. John can't move...LOL. I thought Sasha didn't use the movement part that much against Milos today. He is another one that is slow around the court.

Unless it's a Slam I usually don't pay attention until the really later rounds....but I'm looking back and daily play and Kerber go her butt kicked??  I don't even know the name of the girl who beat her...I don't follow like I used to but Kontaviet???  The women's side is swiss cheese for the seeds left....the quarters - seeds 1,4,5, and 7 were out?  Good lord...
