I think Isner is legit. I've never seen him tank a full match. He cracked into the top 10 and I see top 5 is a realistic goal if he continues to make semis and finals in these garbage events, and minimum QF's in the grand slams. Fish had a 3 month hot streak when all the real top players were taking time off last summer, and his success inflated his ego. He clearly hasn't worked hard to maintain his level from last year and today's loss to Russell proves that fishes have very small hearts

We cashed in good tickets last summer when fish was a dog several times. That time has come and gone. 
Isner lost to Mayer easily the week following his epic match with djoker? If I'm correct then isners poor performance the following week isn't that hard to believe. Just a random letdown. Isner should cruise to win this event in my opinion beating Monaco in the finals

Wish we had this info before the match...

 

"It's tough because I love coming here," Fish said. "I want to play well here. I don't want to go home. I want to stick around for a long time. I've had success in Houston in the past, and I love how they take care of the players. You want to reward them for that. You want to give something back. This is a fun place.

"But anyone could see I wasn't myself I've got to get my mind right again. I've got to get my confidence back."

Two weeks to the day after an unspecified health scare – a few hours after his most recent match in Miami – made Fish seek emergency medical attention and forced him to pull out of last weekend's quarterfinal Davis Cup tie against France, Fish played lethargically, even carelessly.

"In the beginning, I thought he was playing pretty well," Russellsaid. "It was neck-and-neck. But then his game definitely deteriorated big time. I just tried to ride the wave. He was playing very quick between points. I've played Mardy a bunch and that was a little unusual (for him). I was up a break and you usually are going to take a little more time between service points, but he was kind of rushing through. I wasn't going to stop him. I wanted to keep my momentum going."

If you didn't know Fish's pre-Houston back story, or wasn't there to see firsthand how disconsolate he was afterwards, he played so out of sorts you might have believed he didn't care. Because he has declined to provide specifics about what he called "a health scare," media reports have blamed fatigue. Fish insists the issues are a lot more serious than that.

"What happened scared me," Fish said, "And obviously I'm not over it yet."
