Us Open: Isner vs. Kohlscreiber

4 years ago

Hey guys!

I thought I would post some more sports things because when I`m not hanging out with my friends that`s pretty much all I do (in the summer)
Last night Kohlscreiber and Isner had a game at the US Open. It was a 3rd round match to see who would get into the quarter finals.
Isner was the definite favourite, the highest ranked American that was left in the tournament. Due to rain delays they started late-at 11pm.
Isner lost the first set, won the next two and the lost the next two sets to Kohlscreiber.
It was a pretty close game, no player was completely dominating (as a Djokovic, Federer or Nadal would) and after a foot-call for Isner that`s when it really started to look bad for Isner.
He got upset after the umpire called for a chase review even though he thought he didn`t challenge. Later in the game (after the foot call) he smashed his tennis racket against the ground and then threw it to the side.
Kohlscreiber ended up winning the match at 2:26 in the morning.
It was a much more interesting match than I thought it would be, with just a bit of controversy.

Who were you cheering for? Are you watching the US Open?
