Hamburg is a poor man's Acapulco Those 500 points can't fall soon enough.

Re: WWW IW QF: Isner vs Simon

Just checked out some videos of Simon/Isner. He can't get a read on the Isner serve. He has a bad record against Karlovic too, the only win he got was on clay and that was in a breaker in the 3rd set.

Johnny Isner for the win although my heart goes out to the Bulge King.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

Re: WWW IW QF: Isner vs Simon

When Simon will use his brain he should win this, maybe even in straight, in 3 if he loose TB. Their only match at USO was close and Isner was in better form. Simon should do 2 things and he must win -

1.get everything back ala Melzer - just get it back in play it will frustrate Isner that he is not getting so many free points.Simon has decent ROS, just need to stand few metres behind baseline and get every ball he can back in play in rallies i like his chances he can redirect pace and make his opponents to make errors.

2.Another thing, Isner in interview said Monaco´s serve was bothering him, despite his serve is not good he was going for high percentage. If Simon can FS go for high percentage, that means move him lef, right, not going for bombs, he can move him and dictate immediately after his serve and won´t be under pressure of 2nd serves, if he has high FS%.

About court speed and who likes it more, i think for both slow HC is great surface, Isner has enough time for better timing, higher bounce means balls are getting into his striking zone, also more time for his deffense, movement.

Simon´s advantage here he can get everything back and Isner can´t hit through him so easily.

If Isner wins, he saves tennis. If Simon wins, he saves tennis. If either win, tennis loses.

Isner in 2.

Re: WWW IW QF: Isner vs Simon

The fact that this is a quarter final of a masters event is just horrible.

Good god T_T

He will be 11th whether win or lose tonight. If Almagro wins today and John lose he'll be still 12th.
