After starting the match slowly, John Isner came back into the match fighting hard, putting in a spirited display to overcome a slightly fragile Tomas Berdych, to win the match in 3 tight sets, with a score of 3-6,6-4,7-6(9).
The first set started off on even terms, but slowly and sure drifted away from the American, before he could even realise. In the end, it was a lopsided scoreline in favour of the Czech, who got two breaks of serve to win the set 6-3. The former Wimbledon finalist got the first break of serve in the fifth game, while he continued to look impenetrable on serve holding easily every time. Isner then made a hash of his last service game, presenting the set to the No.2 seed.
The second set started in a manner that was exactly the opposite of the first set, as the American came storming back to break early. And the No.2 seed was made to pay for that sloppy game early on, as Isner got into top gear. He has already served 12 aces in the match, and served three in the final game alone to close out the set. The Czech himself played a good set, but was unable to penetrate through the American's serve in the set, which was flawless.
The third set was as we call it a stalemate in the game of tennis. It was the battle of the serve as neither player could get a hold of the other's serve. In the 11th game of the set, Isner had opportunities to break but the American just couldn't convert. And as we went into the tie-break, picking a winner was next to impossible.
