Yeah, he might get one set to a TB, but Fed in straight. If all cards fall Isner's way he may pull out a TB and force a fourth, but very doubtful.

Isner will never get close to breaking Fed's serve so he will have to win 3 tiebreaks and that isn't happening. Fed will break him a couple of times and win one set in a tiebreak.

LOL, Capdeville is still playing. But what they hey

Isner is going to lose. But that would be cool if won. But he won't. But there's a chance. Roger has some iffy results with people younger than him that he plays for the first time... soooo, I dunno. But, I am happy for Isner as much as he ruined my Washington experience, beating all my guys, I forgive him though. I just hope the match is intense and lives up to all the hype.

I wish Isner had done something to piss Roger off, so he could go into "Super Psycho Mode" and whitewash Isner, but I wouldn't be surprised if Roger manages to drop a set.

Anything is possible, but somethings are very unlikely. What all guys that defeated Roger on the last couple of years had in common?! Big serve?! Or fast guys who can keep the ball in play, making Roger hit one shot after another?! So ... do the math. Of course that being able to do the math requires a brain- a "muscle" that some spartans arent used to exercise.

Someone on Television Without Pity posted the entry on Isner's facebook which reads as follows

When John gets into the US Open he will perhaps be matched up in the first round with world #1 Roger Federer. If, in such a scenario, you are totally prepared to make the trip to NY in late August to offer both rabid support of John and merciless heckling of the smug Swiss, then join this group.

I imagine that John himself did not post this - but still I guess he sanctioned it and - gah. It makes me wish that John was not a fellow Bulldog but a Florida Gator or Auburn Tiger because that is crass and stupid imo. I had goodwill towards Isner since we are both alums of the same institution- even though serve games bore me- but yuck. Goodwill shriveling up faster than Angelina Jolie right now.

I hope Roger sees this and kicks his ass.

And nice to see that Rafa bashing is alive here- since it has been declared and agreed upon that anyone who is a fan of Nadal is an idiot. :p Good thing I like Roger so much....:p :p

On the bright side- either Peter Bodo or Steve Tignor at Tennis World wrote that they went to Blake's first round match and folks in the stands got irritated by the J-Block- the the point where someone yelled at them to "get a life." Since the crowds have been increasingly warming up to Feds through the years at the USO- if Isner's band is obnoxious- it may inspire some previous neutrals to root for Roger.

Nobody suggested she couldn't cheer.

EDIT: It really interested me that someone said Hewitt broke him twice in their warmup. It is a warmup, but it's not like they were just walking around and lobbing balls all over the court. Personally, I'd love to Roger start with a break. I think if he can get a break early and establish that Isner lone weapon is not going to be a factor, Isner will donate start giving him even more.

See, that's the problem... even a mediocre Federer can't possibly have any real roblems dealing with the likes of Isner; but you know, I'd never think guys like Volandri had more than 2% chance to beat Federer, even on clay. Nor did I think there was a real chance for someone like Canas to beat him twice in a row on HC.

Anyway, this match depends on Fed alone, for good or for bad. We know Isner will be hitting serve bombs, no surprises there. But what will Fed bring to the court?

If Roddick can break him playing the way he has this summer, then Federer should have no problems with him!:p Plus Ferrer owns him; broke him multiple times the past 2 weeks to beat him in Cincy & New Haven. "Anything Ferrer can do, Federer can do it better!!!"

If Federer can manage Karlovic who has more experience and more game than Isner, it is certainly very very improbable that isner has a chance to WIN this match. He can maybe win a set but that is about it. Its not like Fed has a poor service holding record

Fed will win. I would like Isner to win, but I doubt it.

I did not see Isner's mom, but who cares how she cheers? I am sure she is excited for her son and the situation is brand new (in terms of attention, competition and fanfare which is much greater at the Open than in the NCAA).

Uncle Toni needs to start using some brains and get Rafa to W/D and rest for 5-6 weeks. Even the #2 ranking is less important right NOW then getting health in the legs back. I want Rafa around for the long-term, he makes tennis just a bit more entertaining.

top 10 servers this year:

1. karlovic. federer leads 3-0
2. ljubicic. federer leads 11-3, including last 8
3. roddick. federer leads 13-1
4. querrey. federer leads 1-0
5. monfils. federer leads 1-0
6. himself
7. almagro. federer leads 5-0
8. djokovic. federer leads 4-1
9. blake. federer leads 7-0
10. fish. federer leads 5-0

therefore there is no doubt as to who the victor will be

There's a Facebook group where Isner apparently said while drunk to his friends that they have to come and be rowdy and cheer him on if he somehow plays Federer at the U.S. Open.

So, yay that.

While I wouldn't condone that comment, it was probably made before Isner was on the big stage, when all of this seemed completely hypothetical and highly unlikely.

EXACTLY.

She looked like the mom at the high school football game who has the cowbell and sits right behind you. Her fist pumping was terrible. I'm hoping Federer shuts her up more than I'm actually hoping he beats Isner.

She just looked proud and ecstatic to me. It's all quite new to her on this stage.

I'm not a big Isner fan, btw -- but I can imagine what it's like to be in his situation, or be a family member in this situation.

I wasn't really complaining about him saying it, especially since he was drunk. I was more complaining about the fact that there will be a bunch of frat-boyish types treating the match as the money shot of their inside joke.

Nothing wrong with being excited. It was a bit much to me, and some others, and some will agree with you and think it was fine. Not really much more to be said to that end.

I can't say I even paid attention. His mom was annoying, and that's all I noticed.

Again, he was drunk, and probably said it half-assed. I don't think he was by any means conspiring. (To be honest, I'm completely sure. It sounds like something anyone would say just joking.) I'm just saying, being in college now, there's plenty of potential for annoying college kids to have a giant orgasm over their inside joke being public.

Isner is going to get dominated. As long as Roger takes care of his service games--which I'm sure he will because Isner's ground game is pretty damn terrible, he's going to eventually get into Isner's service games. After returning those bombs, I expect Roger to take over rallies easily.

A loss to the 6-1 Fed in full view of predominantly American audience can be psychologically devastating for the 6-9 Isner. Just thinking about how his game plan (to beat the No. 1) will send John in a "tailspin" - for me, it is the called mental thing that will bring about Isner's waterloo tomorrow. As for Fed, no worry, just thinking of what he will wear (will it be the all-black outfit again?).

This is from a facebook group set up months ago which isner himself was a member of:

Group Info Name: "Federer, you ain't shit, John Isner owns you!!"
Type: Sports & Recreation - Professional Sports
Description: These words uttered by John Isner. Alcohol may or may not have been involved.

When John gets into the US Open he will perhaps be matched up in the first round with world #1 Roger Federer. If, in such a scenario, you are totally prepared to make the trip to NY in late August to offer both rabid support of John and merciless heckling of the smug Swiss, then join this group.

"Dude. If I win NCAAs, and play in the US Open, and play Federer, you guys HAVE to be there. You guys have to be there and yell 'Federer, you aint shit, John Isner owns you!!'. Im telling you,

IF YOU'RE THERE, I CAN BEAT HIM."

i'll say it for those who hope Federer lose (mostly lovers of big serves maybe, roddicktards and generally people who dont care for the good tennis :lol: ) - Isner 6:0 6:0 6:1. He'll lose the last game serving for the match by making 4 doubles to save the humiliation for Fed while people will think he just got a bit nervous. ;)
