• Gasquet and Isner ousted from Madrid

    5/8/13 3:51 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Gasquet and Isner ousted from Madrid No. 8 seed Richard Gasquet and John Isner were both sent packing from the Madrid Masters by Spaniards.

    Pablo Andujar (WC) def. John Isner 6-4, 6-4

    The fantastic serving that American John Isner displayed in his opening-round match against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez was conspicuously absent against Pablo Andujar.

    Andujar is currently ranked No. 113 in the world, far below Isner's No. 21 ranking. But it was the Spaniard who rose to the occasion on Tuesday. Isner finished the match with just five aces, but worse, he played passive tennis throughout. He never seemed to be quite in position and paid the price by donating a break of serve in each set.

    Andujar will take on countryman Daniel Gimeno-Traver in the third round.

    Daniel Gimeno-Traver def. Richard Gasquet 7-5, 3-6, 6-4

    Spaniard Daniel Gimeno-Traver put in a good effort to defeat a slightly deflated Richard Gasquet to advance to the third round.

    Gimeno-Traver mostly out-hit Gasquet from the baseline. The Frenchman was actually in the lead in the first set, serving at 5-3, but Gimeno-Traver broke back and then secured another to snag the set out from underneath Gasquet.

    The Frenchman made some headway in the second set, but it was Gimeno-Traver who pulled it together in the third for the win.

makes no difference as you can see...this is CLAY we are talking soon as points develop Isner gets lost...long rallies obviously do not go with his appearance...:)

Ricky, I didn't say that his first serve percentage was lacking. I looked at the match statistics. No matter whether he served at a high percentage or not, he wasn't winning all kinds of free points like he did against GGL. And as natashao points out, he was completely helpless during a rally. He looked like he never stepped foot on a clay court yesterday.
