French Open 2011: John Isner Surges to a Two Set to One Lead over Rafael Nadal
The unbelievable is unfolding on Court Phillippe Chartrier at the French Open as American John Isner has taken two tiebreaks to open up a lead over world No. 1 Rafael Nadal in their first round contest.
Nadal took the opening set 6-4 and had a break of serve in the second set when Isner broke back to even the set and take it to a tiebreak. Isner won the breaker in convincing fashion.
The match leveled at one set apiece.
The third set went to another tiebreak which the American dominated again, going up two sets to one.
The 6'9 inch Isner's serve has been very effective as well as his groundstrokes in the first three sets.
In order for Nadal to win the match, he will have to play five sets which the World No. 1 has never done at Stade Roland Garros.
Nadal has just broken to go up 2 games to 1 in the fourth set.
The American has been playing stellar tennis so far in the match. Will Isner be able to break back as he did in set two?
