Nalby is hot right now and has one of the best returns in the game so in theory he should have the advantage. However the court couldn't suit Isner's game better (home court advantage included), Isner can get more kick on his serve than any other guy out there which will hurt someone "short" like Nalby no matter how good his ROS is, and Isner is the toughest guy mentally out there while Nalby is famous for the opposite.

Isner in 3: 6-4 3-6 7-6(4)

Isner in 3: 6-4 3-6 7-6(4)Whether he's hot or not has no bearing on the outcome, Nalbandian is ten times the player Isner is. If Isner serves well, he could force a tiebreak. If he serves poorly, he's losing 6-1 6-0.

interesting match up. I think Nalby wins - better ground game and his ROS will help against Isner.

Isner in ONE. Yes ONE. That's all it'll take before Nalby says "F--- This!" and goes home.

Nalbandian in 2? He should be able to return Isner's serve.

It's not hard to break Nalbandian recently, but it'll be pure gold seeing John react to David's returns.

Awesome match-up, I wish I could see it :( I don't really want to call it... But I think maybe Nalby in 3.

I picked dave in this one on my draw sheet. But after seeing big john's 1st match, having serious second thoughts. He looks well rested for the first time since the wimby match. Would not surprise me in the least if he takes this one. He's just so much mentally tougher than nalbandian.
This one should be fun to watch.

I don't know why people think Nalbandian's return of serve will make all the difference. Nalbandian is perhaps the best on the tour at punishing relatively weak serves (vide what he's just done to Ljubicic's 2nd serve), but when it comes to getting big serves back into play, he's above average, but nothing extra special. If Isner has a high 1st-serve percentage he'll be able to keep the match tight. Nalbandian will of course have the advantage in the rallies.

This.
If Isner wins, I´ll also hope he´ll take the trash out in 3rd round.

Nalby may be too short to reach John's kick serve.
