    “M” words… I’m stumped. Mega-tall? Monotonously inevitable 5-setters? In any case, good one, Lindsay. This is fun to read and full of good points (love the nod to healthcare as opposed to WebMD. Hello, America). I don’t know what kind of malaise John is struggling with at the moment, but his decisions, as explicated by you, are somewhat baffling. Thanks for the insights. I hope John does get it together — I find him very likable. Maybe the pressure gets to him.

    You know you’re a tennis junkie when “Mahut” and “Mathieu” instantly come to mind. 😉 (And so does “mopey,” but I’ll save that snark for another day.)

    Loved your rant and NO you are not being too hard on Isner. Those ridick 5-setters are annoying as hell to me… I’m sorry but having the label ‘one of the guys who got to play the longest match ever’ would be an embarassment if it were me. I thought all that ballyhoo over those two poor guys was excessive. Ummmm… return of serve, anyone?

    “He should not wear himself out at 250s.”

    This needs to be embroidered onto Querrey’s towels as well.

    I just want to say that I loved this and I agreed with everything you wrote. My favourite part was the “knees are important!” statement. So true Lindsay 😛

    Well don’t be shy! 😉

    Agree on all counts.
    Not sure why I was startled to read that he’s 27. I forget that he actually took advantage of his talents and finished university.
    I was unaware of his pre Aus Open saga, but it sounds as if he needs to serious learn to manage his schedule and prioritise.
    Big serve, and a hand-dog look can only go so far.

    Completely agree about his poor scheduling decisions. For example, he played Houston after Davis Cup in Switzerland last year instead of staying in Europe and playing Monte Carlo. Sure, he may have committed to Houston earlier, but shouldn’t he be aware by now that it’s called the “European clay season” for a reason?
