John Isner responds to Alexander Bublik’s attack on Maxime Cressy.
According to John Isner, Alexander Bublik’s comments following the Newport final were unimpressive, especially Isner’s assertion that a player “makes his own luck” on the court.
To claim his first ATP title, Isner’s compatriot Maxime Cressy prevailed over Bublik 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3) in the Newport final. At one point during their match, Bublik was up 6-2, 3-0 against the American, and it looked like he was going to win by a wide margin.
Later, Cressy staged a remarkable comeback to take the match in three sets. As the match concluded, Bublik made it clear that Cressy had been extremely fortunate. “You struck lucky.
