I wouldn't call Isner a joker, a GS semi-finalist (very close to a final), Masters 1000 winner this year and has been consistently been around the 10-20 mark for almost a decade. Well deserved in my view, glad he made it there once in his career. Sock is a different story
The NextGen finals start tonight with Alex playing an Italian WC first up.
Yeah, I could agree with some Isner years in the past, but his better patches of the season were top 10 worthy and clutch, dare I say peak. Far better overall season than Sock 2017. Isner was a worthy top 10 player in 2018, like it or not. Typically, his 10-20 year rests on a few 250 cheapies and a deep masters run. This season had more substance and playing to seed in draws.
ADM in good form at Milan. 3-0'd the group. Tsitsipas also 3-0'd his group, Rublev is still on the road back, and Munar had a solid season worthy of a SF run. Won his first Challenger in a final against ADM as well.
