Cincinnati Semifinal: Isner/Del Potro
Who do you got in here?

Del Potro is 4-0 against Isner and the last time they played was Citi Open 2013 final in which Delpo won in three sets.

I pick Del Potro in two sets.

I went Del Potro in 3, too, because John can always get one in a TB.

Isner has caused three upsets in a row (Gasquet 9, Raonoic 10, Djokovic 1). All good
things must come to an end.

I voted for DelPo in 2, but Isner might take a set (especially if it goes to TB).

I agree. Isner's playing well these days, but I don't see him getting past JMDP.

RE: Cincinnati Semifinal: Isner/Del Potro
del potro is just too calm and too composed against dr iznaaaaaahh.


that said, these courts are playing somewhat quick.

their match is in the sun tomorrow. so the air molecules will expand in the ball and the drier courts/less damp courts will play fast.

that gives isner a chance to steal a set.

I would be very surprised if dr isnaaaaaaaaaaah takes it tomorrow.

How come Isner looks tired from the first point on? This is the guy that played the longest match in history, no?
