Well, so much for my prediction! Isner is up a break & Tsonga serving to stay in the first set at 3-5. He held but Isner won the set to love on his serve 6-4.
Can JWT do enough to make it a 3 setter?
EDIT: Yes, he can! And he held serve in the 4th game of the 3rd set from being 0-40 down. Some beautiful, brave play from him.
EDIT (2) : Isner won, 3-6, 7-6. Tsonga couldn't get his first in for the bulk of it, and yet, Isner couldn't do the job sooner. He had a number of break points at 0-40 against tsonga, but couldn't convert despite Tsonga's poor first serves.
Isner may well win this title, but he will need more than his serve, excellent thought this weapon is, to go deep at the USO.
EDIT (3) : Berdych started off with a wobble getting broken in his opening service game, but has just won, 6-4, 6-3.
Querry is a big server too & if Berdych got through, perhaps Isner's serve won't be insurmountable for him.
Anyway, its a Berdych - v- Isner final.
