01-21-2010, 11:26 AM
John boy has shown that on his day he can bt very good players in big ocassion matches like he did to roddick at the us open.

Monfils hasnt come into this tournament fresh, had shoulder problems in sydney and has had a relatively easy draw so far.

Isner comming off his great win in auckland and full of confindence.

Shock on the cards?

hoping big john

Think John will handle it and then we will see what he can do against Murray

01-21-2010, 12:13 PM
John in 5 :rocker2: Though wouldn't mind if Monfils wins :)

01-21-2010, 02:13 PM
John needs to be full on for this. I think John will have the crowd behind him.

this is as far as isners serve will take him

If Isnah manages to snatch a set in some Tb, he should be a happy man

How do you even suspect a possible deception here, i have no idea..

Remember their styles? No? ok

If Gael is fully fit (and you never know with him) he will win, but the cakewalk clearly has ended for him.

Would love Monfils to prove me wrong but think Isner's the more likely winner :sad:

Vamos big John. He's beaten Monfils before and he knows what it's at.

01-21-2010, 03:16 PM
Gael in 4

01-21-2010, 03:18 PM
Monfils, injury permitting (seems like it's a non factor, but meh, he's always breaking :( )

Big John's got this on the bag.

I still laugh that his college mates call him grandpa xD

01-21-2010, 04:01 PM
Monfils, for being far better.

01-21-2010, 04:13 PM
I hope John but sounds like he was dying on court against Sorensen from some of the reports. He's played alot of matches, if this goes long, you'd think Gael should take it.

Johnny Boy in 4.

Hopefully Gael but I'm nervous..I could easily see Johnny taking this.

01-21-2010, 10:50 PM
Isner in 3 or 4

01-21-2010, 10:59 PM
John had a rough go against Sorensen. I dunno if he'll be playing at 100%. If it goes to 5 I'd say Gael takes it.

John needs to be full on for this. I think John will have the crowd behind him.

You think Isner is going to have the crowd over a showman like Monfils? Let me have what you are smoking. I'm surprised at everyone who is picking Isner here. John clearly was struggling physically in his last match against Sorensen who is barely ranked inside the top 300, and he was pushed. His first round match was 5 sets. Sorry folks but the serve stops here.

I never consider Isner much of a threat when he's without the home field advantage. Monfils will be too solid, in three or four.

this is tough to say but it should be a great match
