WWW - Wimbledon 1st round : Isner - Mahut

Who wins this clash? I say Isner but Mahut knows some about grass tennis.

Re: WWW - Wimbledon 1st round : Isner - Mahut

Sadly, since I love both and really badly want Nicolas to go deep here, I have to say Big John, could be straights, could be 5 long sets. He's the bigger server and the better baseliner. Only way I see Nicolas winning is if he is serving bombs and being able to get to tiebreaks, or hope for errors in a serve game here or there from John.

Sorry, when I was trying to put a poll in this thread I somehow closed the tab and the forum script just posted it without the poll. Can somebody fix this, please?

Isner has not tools whatsoever to play a good net rusher, his return and passing shots are dire. Nico needs to serve well and either grab any chance he gets to break or be clutch in TBs.

Re: WWW - Wimbledon 1st round : Isner - Mahut

A Mahut win would be good for the game.

Tsonga - Wawrinka - Del Potro - Gasquet - F.Lopez - Monfils - Haas - Janowicz - Youzhny - Tomic - Hewitt - Gulbis - Mahut - Haase - Schoorel - Sijsling - Huta Galung - De Bakker - Van der Duim - Westerhof - Middelkoop - Koolhof - Lootsma - S&T. Griekspoor - Sels - Van Rijthoven

All time: Safin - Schalken - Krajicek - Sluiter - Verkerk - Henman - Ivanisevic - Nalbandian - Ferrero - Philippoussis - Sampras - Siemerink - Blake - F.Gonzalez - Ancic - Haarhuis/Eltingh

Still supporting all the Dutchies despite their great choking skills
Looking forward to the Dutch Futures and Challengers this summer!

Re: WWW - Wimbledon 1st round : Isner - Mahut

Depends on Big John - he looked totally dead on his feet against Berdy. Mahut has never been anything special at Wimbledon, and only beat Koubek in the qualis by virtue of being fitter.
