John Isner Falls in Second Round at Wimbledon . . . Again

John Isner came into Thursday’s matchup with No. 16 Nicolas Almagro having never made it past the second round at Wimbledon. Unfortunately, he exited the match in the same manner, as Isner fell to Almagro, 7-6(3), 7-6(5), 6-7(5), 6-3. Big John neither broke the Spaniard’s serve nor even had a break point opportunity.

Following his victory, Almagro celebrated like Martin Gramatica after a routine 32-yard field goal in the first quarter of a game between the Kansas St. Wildcats and a Division I-AA opponent in a season opener in Manhattan. It should be noted that Almagro has never advanced beyond the third round in six trips to the All-England Club.
