Re: WWW: IW R4 Nadal vs Isner

In yesterday's match, Nadal had no trouble going to his left retrieving wide balls as was his problem last year, and most of them came back for winners. Nadal in 2.

John could give Rafa a run, but think Nadal has this in 2

Re: WWW: IW R4 Nadal vs Isner

Routine win, with a double break in each set.
6-2 6-3 or a similar scoreline.

Re: WWW: IW R4 Nadal vs Isner

Isner certainly has a chance even though I predict Nadal.

I don't understand people's votes unless they think that Nadal is favorite for the title because Isner certainly is one of the toughest players he can meet to win the title.

When Nadal meets a top-10, the vote is "70% he loses", when he meets Isner it's the opposite : this difference is non-sense

I can think that Nadal is favorite for the title (even though I wait for his next two matches because he hasn't had opposition so far), but if you don't think he's so strong, then the logic is to say that he will have a hard match.

Re: WWW: IW R4 Nadal vs Isner

Nadal is playing pretty well... but I get the feeling something's about to give. I think Isner's going to confuse him, and Nadal won't be able to stay focused. Isner in 2!

Re: WWW: IW R4 Nadal vs Isner

If Isner has a higher percentage just like against Querrey like 79% of first serves in,it would be really tough for Nadal to break serve.
All Nadal can do is hold serve and hope for a small chance otherwise it`s the tiebreak lottery

tiebreak is not only a lottery : differences in percentages between players are quite obvious.

Isner is one of the strongest for that : as Voo de Mar said, he's won nearly two thirds of the one he played, only Federer has done little bit better (Karlovic is not at all, which proves that it's not only about serve, it's about mental strength). Djokovic is also very good for that.

I consider that Nadal and Isner may be the strongest mentally players on tour, then it can be tough (but in tiebreaks Nadal doesn't have such great stats, little bit more than 50% only)

Re: WWW: IW R4 Nadal vs Isner

If Isner serves well & gets into a couple of tie-breakers, he should grab a set.

Perhaps. But that's about the max he might get, some 15% chance of that to happen. Court suits Nadal a lot more than Isner and he's the more allround player. As soon as Isner finds any trouble with his serve, he's toast.

Nadal in two.
