Isner could not finish the match for the Australian Open against Stan Wawrinka due to an injury. It was about a month ago. At the moment, it’s hard to say exactly what form John is in. We expect that the US representative had a good rest and that damage does not bother him anymore.
Recently, Isner is not like himself. He serves poorly, because such games often happen when there is no first ball at all. In such situations, he is forced to take risks from the second, and this leads to double errors. About a year ago, everyone was surprised how John improved his court movement. But now he is struggling to get the simplest balls again, and he quickly gets tired. Such a regression can be attributed to permanent injury. However, this is not the main reason, since John recently got married and he already had a second child. Therefore, tennis is gradually fading into the background.
In total, Isner has played nine fights this season, in five of which he has failed.
If earlier Thompson could boast of a cannon feed, now it has disappeared somewhere without a trace. After all, the Australian delivers at 180 km / h. nor does he even try to vary the direction of the ball, but sends the balls to the body, which is a great advantage for rivals who are keen to take. But Jordan improved his game on the back line, as it became easy enough to keep the ball in court. A tennis player regularly runs out to the net and in most cases successfully.
Thompson has already managed to test one of the courts at a tournament in New York. In the first round, the Aussie got a tennis player who, like Isner, has a powerful serve. It is about Ivo Karlovic.
But Jordan did not experience any special problems in the game against the Croatian giant and defeated him in two games with a score of 6-3, 7-6.
