U.S. Open 2012 Tennis Scores: John Isner Falls In 5 Sets

John Isner had to wait through a lengthy rain delay before even taking the court Sunday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium for his match with Philipp Kohlschreiber. But his eventual five-set defeat probably magnified the pain of the wait.

The No. 19 seed German won a tight first set, 6-4, by winning the only break point he had. Isner was sharper in the second set, winning 6-3 in just 37 minutes and collecting five aces.

In set three, Isner was able to break Kohlschreiber in the decisive game to win 6-4, converting the last of three break points to go up two sets to one.

But Kohlschreiber battled back for a 6-3 win in the fourth set, and endured a 55-minute final set that ended 6-4 in his favor to move on to the round of 16, his third appearance in the round of 16 in a Grand Slam event in 2012.

U.S. Open Tennis Bracket 2012: Roger Federer, Andy Roddick Highlight Round of 16 Action

Roger Federer once again highlights the men's action in the U.S. Open, with the top-seeded player taking on American Mardy Fish in the Men's Round of 16 set to begin on Monday.

The highlight of the round will likely be Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro taking on No. 20 Andy Roddick, who will hope to stave off his retirement for one more round against the No. 8 seed. The winner of that match will face the winner of No. 2 Novak Djokovic and No. 18 Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarterfinals.

No. 11 Nicolas Almagro of Spain will face No. 6 Tomas Berdych of Czechoslovakia, with the winner playing the victor of Federer-Fish.

No. 3 Andy Murray will take on Canada's Milos Raonic, No. 15 in the tournament, with the winner either No. 12 Marin Cilic of Croatia or Slovakia's Martin Klizan, who upset No. 32 Jeremy Chardy on Sunday.

Phillip Kohlschreiber, who defeated John Isner in the wee hours on Sunday night, draws No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia. No. 4 David Ferrer, who overcame a sloppy performance to defeat Lleyton Hewitt in the third round, will take on No. 13 Richard Gasquet of France. The winners of those two matches will meet in the quarters.

Full schedule for the Round of 16 can be found at the U.S. Open's website.

U.S. Open 2012 Tennis Scores: Petra Kvitova's Late Collapse Leads To Marion Bartoli Upset

The veteran got the better of the youngster Sunday evening at the U.S. Open when Marion Bartoli upset Petra Kvitova 1-6, 6-2, 6-0 to take down the No. 5 seed.

It looked like Kvitova might simply run away with it after an impressive all-around showing in her first set but by the end, the 22-year-old had visibly unraveled with 29 total unforced errors. And when Kvitova's frustration began to show, Bartoli would take her game to another level, showing near tactical perfection in the second and third sets.

By the end, Bartoli was in complete control winning 12 of the last 13 games and 25 of 32 possible points in the third set.

With the win, Bartoli advances to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open for the first time in her career. Kvitova's loss also means that no woman will reach the quarterfinals at every major this year.
