It's gonna be tougher than people expect. I agree with your scoreline Topspin, there or there about I think will be the scoreline.

Nadal in 3. Mind you, Isner is a much better clay courter than most Americans.

Have you seen Isner play on grass? The clown just serves all day without trying to break his opponent and hopes he gets lucky in TB's. No wonder his match against Mughut was such a mugathon last year.

0-6, 1-6, 7-6, 7-6, 6-4 Isner. Nadal pulls his gluteus maximus in the third set but keeps playing anyway. After that Isner serves him out to complete the upset.

Does anyone remember their match in Madrid 2010? Isner served very well and he lost in two. And Madrid's court is much more faster than Roland Garros.

Nadal in easy three. Isner wins at most 8 games.

Isner was also exhausted from winning a tournament just before, he could hardly move.

Talk bout a mismatch :lol:. To say this current generation of Americans is bad on clay would be an understatement. Come to think of it they are not even good on other surfaces :help:.

Isner took Djokobitch to 5 on clay, and he owns Nadull. Isner, if he plays the match of his life, could have a chance but Nadull has never faced a player who was actually in form :o

:eek:

It's scary to think that Del Potro wasn't in form, yet still beatdown Nadal and then dethroned Federer to win the US Open.

Even scarier is to think how many years Djokovic will go unbeaten seeing as he isn't actually in form right now.

its good to see another tennis expert who can see through the bullshit propaganda the spanish mafia have spread about the unbeaten moonballer

obviously nadal never faced 100% federer

even 60% federer beat nadal 6-0 on clay!

djokobitch is only doing what 70% federer would have done anyway

rarfito fans are always worried or afraid about something... afraid of djokovic, afraid of the court's speed, afraid of the draw, afraid of the umpire enforcing the rules, afraid of their hero drawing isner on clay, afraid of the french, afraid of the haters, afraid of some ballboy touching the water bottles, etc, etc.

(See John, this is why you need to play well in the other tournaments :o )

why bother fighting for a good atp ranking if you can get hosed and face the world #1 in the first round. Granted, Isner is no clay player but he deserved a better fate.

Don't worry, end of fall. He doesn't have to defend too lot of points the rest of this year. :hug: Maybe Atlanta, but his US Open Series was too unlucky, I'm sure this one will be better.

John should be ok for the summer to get some points, but where is the logic in grand slam drawing. Rafa should be facing some mug like Go Soeda or Robert kendrick.

He won't get again too big opponent in Wimbledon, see it! ;)

He will be seeded again with good US Open Series. I dare say he will have a good results also in Wimbledon. I believe John.

Have you seen Isner's rank as of late? He doesn't have the game to keep a good rank, plain and simple. Servers like him and Karlovic go on hot streaks when their serves are working fully, then they dip again, repeat.

Ranked 39 in the world. Based on the ranking range, Rafa could've drawn ljubo, monaco, montanes, malisse, lopez, chela, or kohlschreiber. These are 2nd-3rd round matchups.

I'm looking for consistency. Nole is getting debacle, and murray is getting some wc/qualifier. One could argue Roger is also getting a shit matchup in the first round.

Very tricky opponent for the opener. Usually Nadal doesn't play good in first rounds of slams and could find it difficult to break Isner.
Maybe it's not a good comparision, but who expected Karlovic to take down Hewitt in Wimbledon R1 in 2003?

Isner used to be clutch, but now he is a mental midget and a mug. If Isner serves well and tries to play decently, I foresee a tough 1st set, and then a demolition job by Nadull in the next 2.

Something like 7-6 6-2 6-2 should do the trick.
