When are you going to get this through your head: aces mean next to nothing when the rest of your game is below average. If he's this good, why does he only have 5 titles? Why is his career record 165-109? Why hasn't he won a slam yet? Isner deserves to be a pro, but you're VASTLY overrating him.
The courts are playing very quick this year did you see how well Del Po serving today? 4 aces to close out the match!! Sure he's a great player and a contender but he would have had a mighty tough time getting John's serve back in play on that surface.
Serve and huge forehand combo on a quicker court and it's job done! Querrey said these are the quickest courts he has played on in a Grand Slam!
