He’s got on top of Isner’s serve every other time he’s played him, which is why he always beats him. Unlike the youngster Ruud, Isner never has been - and never will be - in a grand slam final.
That third set should be the turning point, if Murray’s body can last five sets.
Two long past it old guys going the distance. Plenty of errors and good fun coming up, and tired legs afterwards. Jannik Sinner will surely beat whoever the winner is in the next round.

 

Yes but it is a slam final on clay.  Ruud has barely won a match on grass in his career.  Murray would have loved to take his number 3 seeding.

1:33 in.

Federer wins the point as the ball boy catches a ball that didn't bounce but was clearly out.

That proves nothing.  The ball isn't dead until it bounces twice.

So if someone skies a volley right up into the crowd and a fan catches it, that's a let, aye?

It proves that historically they don't replay points when the ball boy catches the ball.  Which was the quite frankly ludicrous suggestion

Yeah I retract that.  You are correct.

  1. The backstop and sidestop (fences), spectators, ballboys and officials are considered permanent fixtures. The point ends when the ball hits them.

Are the reactions just not there anymore?


Seems like it. In the olden days whenever Murray drew the 6’6+ big serving guys like Isner, Karlovic, or Cillic to a lesser extent you knew he was going to beat them.
His returning has always been superb and those big guys don’t have much else going for them.
He needs to find that kind of form again in the next 20 minutes, or I suspect this will be his last ever match at Wimbledon.

Agreed.  Don’t recall him having a break point or even getting Isner to duece in this match.  Something clearly not there that he used to have, as well as the lanky yanky has played.
