It was a classic Sloane Stephens shot that appeared tohave shown itself at the end part of the match instead of from the beginning.

She insisted she still had plenty to be proud of. Her timing was off.
Isner was a spent force in the fourth and Del Potro drove in the dagger with a break in the second game consolidated by another in the eighth.
The American was not landing enough first serves to keep himself out of trouble, with Del Potro increasingly forcing him to play off his toes, and by the fourth set Isner's resistance had run out.
