Isner played well.. Hit alot of winners.. and fought off alot of BPs... Also served at 67%.. which isn't bad.

Nadal was too good.. 0 UEs in the firsdt set and only 13 in the last two.

Good job breaking yourself in set 2 Rafa

Amazing serve stats for Isner. Only served 1 DF, but 22 aces and 1st serve percentage was 66%. In sets 1&2 he was over 70 But he did nothing on Rafa's serve though, and would not have broken if not for Rafa's errors, which came from nowhere.

Re: IW R4: Nadal def. Isner 7-5 3-6 6-3

Fun match. Lucky return game in the first set for Rafa to get the break. But he gave a very cheap game back in the 2nd set. Isner just couldn't get any first serves in the crucial moments of the 3rd set. He got tired and deflated, and Rafa was pumped, playing solid as always.

Could be a good one against Berdych.

Re: IW R4: Nadal def. Isner 7-5 3-6 6-3

Isner was tense like a string of the racquet. Total opposition to what he showed against Querrey. Actually good scoreline for him after such a poor performance (excluding serve)

Baldy Rafa should begin to play with a cap, the top of his head looks worse with each tournament

Re: IW R4: Nadal def. Isner 7-5 3-6 6-3



good performance by Rafa, Isner can be very dangerous in HC with his serve

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Big John dropped from 84 % 1 st serves in the 2nd to 21 % in the third hence the break. Was hoping for an upset and a tight 3rd set but wasn't in the cards tonight.

All serve this Isner.

Re: IW R4: Nadal def. Isner 7-5 3-6 6-3

That was solid from Nadal. Imperious first set, but you get the feeling that Soderling, Davy, Del Potro or Djokovic -- the Nadal Slayers -- could have won the second and third.

Isner ran out of gas. Del Potro used to be the same, hopefully Isner can follow a similar path; Isner has the game to dominate Nadal the same way Del Potro does. We'll have to see what the fast hardcourts do for this matchup.

Re: IW R4: Nadal def. Isner 7-5 3-6 6-3

Isner played good with his serve and fh as expected but Nadull was too consistent in such a slow hard court.
Iser level drop a little in the third missing many first serves due to tiredness and that was the key.
