    Watched you struggle trying to hit drop shots against Murray and it obviously was you were taking your eye off the bal at the very last instant try watching the ball a half second after you hit the ball if your honest with yourself you'll realize that when you miss it's allways because your looking where you are trying to hit it

    Last year I had high hopes for Isner. His loss to Murray was unneccesary. His short game was atrocious. His chip shots failed miserably. Somehow his coach gets it, but Isner doesnt or neither Isner nor his coach get it. Isner was not moving on the court. Is he depending too much on his size and reach? When he had pace on the ball he was good and winning points. Good luck for the rest of the season John!!!!

    John has great talent and is a joy to watch. He will just get better and better and very soon be in the top 100 players. He must be a very charming and interesting young man and we just want to see more of him and watch all the matches he plays. Good Luck John for 2010.
    All best wishes, Jacqueline.
