TOP 10 chance for Isner!

Since Djokovic withdraws, there is a open way to the final for Isner. He'll play Ferrer today, if he wins will play against Tsonga. Final against Murray/Federer/Berdych/Monaco. If he wins the title, he will complete the season as number 9!

Jump on him bandwagon now. At least, getting to the final is not a dream with this draw. (surely he will have very weak chances against Federer or Murray but nevermind)

Would love to see that but he can't beat David

No...please no Isner in TOP10.
Ferrer should beat him on these courts.

Isner also knows this. Might cause some pressure. Monfils, Simon, Dolgo had similar opportunities and all of them failed. Tipsy also has had many chances but he is nr9 atm so yeah maybe not a fail

I don't think Isner is going to win the Tournament and I certainly hope he doesn't make it into the Top 10! Whoever said Fish being in the Top 10 was bad enough is certainly right.
America needs to develop some really great tennis players like we had in the past.

I think Ferrer returns too good against Isner so it won't happen. :p

Ferrer leads H2H 3-0 but they didn't played since 2009. More over, they played two times in 2007 when Isner was still developing his game. In 2009 they played in Miami which is a very slow hard court (even slower than this year's Paris) and Isner took him to 3 sets. I think Ferrer is the favourite but as slightly...

but it doesnt matter because its not going to happen, he's not good enough to beat that many good players in a row

I don't fancy his chances of reaching the final and winning the title would be a real surprise IMO, can't see him beating Federer or Murray.

He won't beat Federer but regardless of what happens in this tournament, he's got a good chance of making the top 10. His results this year were poor until July and he's got hardly anything to defend until then. A few strong runs during the early hard court swing and a decent run at Queen's/Wimbledon and he'll most likely crack the top 10 at some point.

:lol: @ this "horrible for tennis" bullshit

As said above, with the bad start to this season Isner had, his ranking is only going to go up. People forget Isner was below .500 heading into Newport, and since then he's been playing a top 10-15 standard consistently. Top 10 is extremely realistic for Isner. Hopefully he does make the finals, but he won't win the title.

The difference between Fish doing it and Isner is that he's much younger at 26 soon to be 27. It may be tennis old but consider he spent 4 years in college winning a national title for the Georgia Bulldogs.

Would you guys trade a national title in college tennis and a bachelor's degree in Speech Communication for 4 extra devolopment years? I wouldn't if I was a tennis player

not to get off topic but what the hell is wrong with Fish being in the top 10????
Maybe you can enlighten me on why it is more fitting for Thomas Berdych to be in the top 10 considering he only has one major QF, and pretty shitty masters results...
or Nicholas Almagro who hasn't even made a major QF or a masters final

Anyway he has lot of chance for do it, in next year. Until Newport, he doesn't have to defend too much points. Here is few important tournament until it, Wimbledon, Australian Open, Memphis too for him or Indian Wells. :angel:

Isner's already had the best ATP career that started after graduating from college.


Those 4 years at Georgia has helped him have a career. I think he can lead the young American charge at best and at worst buy time for Young-Harrison-Sock

Why is Isner in Top 10 the end of tennis. Is it because he's American, went to college instead of turning pro early

Isner has won every possible step in his tennis career

High School
College national title + BA in Speech Com
Challengers
ATP 250
ATP 500
2 wins away from ATP 1000
QF slam

All that from a college graduate plus he's young ebough to lead the American charge for the same years Roddick led this generation

Nadal at his best is one of the most explosive and exciting players to watch, unlike Mugray who just keeps the ball in play and hopes for unforced errors :lol:

:scratch: Murray is one of the few players who can actually combine power and touch. He can hit the cover of the ball, particularly from the backhand side and in the very next minute hit a superbly delicate drop shot. The word ''variety'' is thrown around but Murray actually has it. The biggest weakness for him is an inability (at times) to control his nerves at very important moments.

Because Isner could serve only 100000000 years ago and posters think he is still someone who doesn't have any stroke. :ignore: I guess there is few poster who didn't watch his match in this year btw. :lol: :facepalm:

Isner can easily beat Tsonga.Lot of people dont want to see that Isner really improves his game.I always hated his game style,but nice to see that hes doing better and better in the rallyes.
Hes now nearly the same style of player like Tsonga,big serve,average game

let me clarify... berdych does not have TERRIBLE masters results. but fish has consistently done better than him with the exception of shanghai...
plus he's reached a final in the past year and berdych has not

although i really hope he does today

Fish in span of 9 years (2003-2011) - 6 total Masters QFs (2 SF and 4 F)
Berdych in a span of 7 years (2005-2011) - 17 total Masters QF (1 win, 1 F, 5 SF)...including 6 QF or better this year.

Shanghai doesn't really factor in for either of them.


and your original post mentioned just a Slam QF for Berdych...have you forgotten RG and Wimbledon 2010?

Even if Isner loses today, he does have a decent chance at making the top 10 based on how lousy he'd been in the first three months of 2011. It's hilarious that winning today's match would have him pass Roddick as the American #2 right now.
