Defending champion John Isner got a taste of his own medicine last night at the Houston clay courts. The No. 1 American is noted for so many third set tiebreaks wins, but this time he was on the losing end falling to Dustin Brown 64, 67(7), 76(4) in the second round.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Isner was not pleased with his performance afterward.

“I wasn’t feeling it tonight,” and before he left the press room he apologized to a tournament official for “my pathetic performance – I’m sorry you had to watch that.”

Isner finished the match 0-for-9 on break point conversions and he served just 58% of his first serves.

The loss will also knock him out of the Top 10.

Translated Age Says:

So much for Isner’s “I miss the south. #godscountry” tweet after losing at the USO.

First he couldn’t play outside the US, then it was the North.

What’s left?

Beam me up, Scotty!
