I doubt Fed even cares anymore...he has that resigned look on his face all the time nowadays I'm afraid the end is nearing for the greatest talent of all time...

Relax, guys. Federer still played great. I don't buy the decline crap as well. Look, if we had players like Djokovic, Isner, Murray back in 03 - 05 they would still beat him every now and then. The competition is toughening up, I guess.

I bet all my VCash that people still call Isner an all-serve mug even after this win

Re: DC Round 1: Isner defeats Federer 4-6 6-3 7-6 6-2 (USA leads 2-0)

Now Isner needs to follow this win and take out Nadal for reals at the French this time. No 5 setters and all. Just eliminate him in the first round.

No...your life is shitty if the outcome of a a meaningless match has such an impact on it.

Great stuff from Isner, Federer was probably injured.

I wouldn't say Fed played extremely well; he played what he probably thought was 'good enough' to beat Isner. And he was wrong, and by the time he realized that he couldn't find a way back in (especially as by that time Isner was more in the zone).

Fed says he doesn't underestimate any opponent, and I believe that he even believes that. But, it's human nature to do so. He didn't think he was going to lose to Isner on clay and he got burned. Guess he forgot about how Nadal struggled with Isner last year at RG, too.

It's because of the bounce me thinks. On HCs his opponents use the slice a lot against him but on clay the slice stays way to high. Also Isner huge kicker gets an extra lift making it almost impossible to return.

Actually Swiss fucked themselves . This is the worst clay court which I have seen for very long time and Fed in unideal conditions can provide just Shankerer . Nice to see Breakballerer hasn't lost sharpness also
