Do people really think that Isner will beat Nadal at the AO?

I've read people saying that lately but come on... I mean, seriously, there's absolutely no way in hell that someone like Isner could beat Nadal. I wouldn't even be surprised if Isner loses in the first round against that German guy, tbqh.

So really, stop with the wishful thinking because it ain't happening.

That's all I had to say...
I feel much better now.

Nadal's return of serve is not that good so if he can get to TBs who knows.

Plus John's forehand is at its best in a strike zone and Nadal's loopy shit lands right in it.

If Isner serves ridiculously well, I wouldn't count him out.

Maybe, but joey, would you say that Isner is hit enough to play a long tough match? I think the only chance he would have, and it would be a small chance, would be for it to be a straight set match.

I dunno. But I would love to see this match.

This should be a fun match to watch, but I see the scoreline as something like 6-4, 7-6, 6-4 Nadal.

It can be a very interesting match. Isner could beat Nadal but, being honest, it would be really hard for Isner to win, but I think it depends on whether Nadal plays well or just pushing.

Isner may not beat nadal, but Karlovic in the next round will. Facing 2 servers like that would be demorilizing

I agree. Isner has a big serve and some incredible groundstrokes for his height. This is Nadal's worst match up. But then again Isner dosen't have Del Potro's talent nor consistency.
First set will be very important. If Nadal wins it then the match wiil be over, if not Nadal will have to bring his A game.

anything could happen, this is tennis. but i really dont see this happening especially in a grand slam where you actually need to be able to play tennis where one trick ponies like isner or karlovic are there just to fill brackets

On a faster hard court maybe hes a threat, but with the heat and the slower surface, i think Nadal takes it, worst case scenario for him he loses a set.

I don't think anyone seriously believes that Isner has a good chance of beating Nadal. It's just fun to mess with Nadal-tards.

No way

Don't forget ..... Nadal ia a Left-Hander and Isner never win over a left-hander.

Even he's not Nadal.... Isner still can't beat .....

If he serves out of his mind and Rafa had trouble reading it, it wouldn't be a particularly long match. Quick holds and lots of tanks if he falls behind in return games. Nadal would have no rhythm going into a breaker and Isner is mentally tough enough to take advantage, unlike other big servers out there. It's not a very likely scenario but it's a possible one for sure. That's assuming Isner even gets there, but if he hits form he's the only one in Nadal's section with a remote chance of taking him out.

Isner can beat anyone if he serves well. I don't think he's any more likely to beat Nadal than he is anyone else the draw, but it could happen.

People only say Isner has a chance because of the talk about Federer's first round, its just an emotion thing no logic :D

Like last year Nadal won't drop a set until the semis at earliest :D

Simon's withdrawal has moved Ferrer to his place and put Isner in Ferrer's place. Now they can only meet in the quarters (if they make it) but Isner would probably have to beat both Monfils and Murray first.

I know, this thread is laughable so far.

Not because of Isner --he's getting better and better.

Because everyone answering 'Yes' doesn't like Nadal and doesn't think he's that good. You know, his serve, bah, Clement surely returns serve better.

Karlovic has trouble sustaining his game over 3 of 5. It would be a total shock if he made it to the 4th round, especially in Australian Open conditions.

the ones who should be more interested in seeing an early defeat of Rafito are Djokovic fans.
