RE: Cincinnati Quarterfinal: Djokovic/Isner
Based on Isner's stellar return of serve, I'm going with Djokovic in 2

RE: Cincinnati Quarterfinal: Djokovic/Isner
Even with Djokovic's return it will be brutal for him trying to get Isner's serve back in play. Nole in 2 with one tiebreak.

RE: Cincinnati Quarterfinal: Djokovic/Isner
Cincy is definitely the fastest court on tour along with Dubai so Isner definitely has a shot at an upset if Djokovic throws in one of those 0-40 out nowhere muck service games. Especially with his latest trend of double faults. That said, I hope Novak wins.

Isner is looking to pound on Nole's second serves, that's for sure.

Great defending from Isner, he turns the tables around, goes on the offensive, but dumps the smash into the net. That one will hurt.

Nole looking diffident on his best surface, not focused and always looking to his box. Hopefully when Vajda gets to town we'll see a better level from him than we've been seeing.

Why does he need Vajda to focus on what he should be doing?

Nole blinks with a double fault. 4-3 Isner, with 2 serves to come. Monster second serve from Isner.

2 set points saved, now one coming up on Isners serve...he makes no mistakes, first set Isner. His second serve bounces so high even Nole cannot deal with it.

Unbelievable, the only point against the server in the tie break was a
double fault by Djoker.

I said hopefully. Do you have a reason why his level of play is subpar? I'd be glad to know.
