Wimbledon: Exhausted Isner Loses To de Bakker In Straight Sets

After spending 11:05 on court in the first round, John Isner lost in only 1:14 in the second round, falling to Thiemo de Bakker of The Netherlands 6-0, 6-3, 6-2.

The third set was on serve until de Bakker broke in the sixth game. de Bakker next faces the winner of the today’s other second round holdover, No. 13 Mikhail Youzhny vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu.

The question now is just how quickly Isner will pull out of the doubles draw. Given how thoroughly broken he looked today, there’s absolutely no reason for him to do anything now but to get on the first plane back to Florida and sleep for a week.
