Isner not fazed by Hopman Cup losses

Giant American John Isner claims he isn't freaking out despite making a limp start to the new tennis season.

Two days after suffering a straight sets loss to South African Kevin Anderson, Isner was thrashed 6-3 6-2 by rampant Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Tuesday.

Isner cut a frustrated figure for much of the 55-minute contest, with his mobility compromised at times by a slight knee injury that he has carried in recent times.

But despite suffering back-to-back losses, world No.14 Isner said his preparation for the Australian Open remained on track.

"Normally it takes me a while to get going. I'm not worried about it," said Isner, who stands at 206cm.

"I remember about three years ago when I first played this event, I didn't play so well here but I won the next tournament.

"I have time to get ready and I'm confident going into the season. I've put in good work during the off-season.

"It certainly wasn't my best performance (against Tsonga).

"I was missing a lot of shots I would have liked to have made. But I'm not freaking out about it.

"My knee's been bothering me a little bit but it's fine. It's a little tendonitis or something."

Tsonga, who made just four unforced errors compared to Isner's 21, was pleased with his early-season form, which included a straight-sets win over Spain's Fernando Verdasco on Sunday.

"I'm really happy. I played some good tennis," Tsonga said.

"He's always offensive and I have to move quickly."

Tsonga's win gave France a 1-0 lead in their Hopman Cup tie against the second-seeded US.
