The 2.08m (6’10”) American has not dropped serve in his first two matches and with more time to return, clay is arguably his best surface.

“Most times here at Roland-Garros, these are incredible serving conditions for me,” Isner said. “I don’t think people realise how good of a surface clay can be for a guy like myself, especially if the weather for myself is cooperating. If it’s 75, 80 degrees and sunny, the ball is bouncing really high and the court is playing pretty fast. It’s very, very good conditions for me.

“These conditions out here are really tailor-made for me, I believe. I’ve played six sets and held serve all six sets, and I hope in a couple days’ time it’s going to be hot just like it was today.”
