Isner won their only meeting at last year's US Open 7-6(2), 3-6, 7-6(2), 7-6(4).

I think Gillou will take this in three.

Simon will be a totally useless mug against Djoker.

So please Izzy win this!

Simon vs Almagro SF. That would be something...

Simon will probably win this. Conditions suit him and he's a tough opponent for Isner anyway.

EPIC USO rematch. With the slower courts and Isner's recent struggles, I'm giving the edge to Ironman in 3.

Isner should win this. When he's not playing tiebreaks you know he's in scary form :yeah:

If big Jiz tries to hit through Simon on this court, it will be over in two. Simon is on the upswing.

How is Simon as a returner? Home court advantage for Isner, plus Gillou just had a tough match.

Gilles is excellent on slow hard courts. Ryan is a fairly good server but hardly had any aces today.

Just checked Simon's return game record, he's 26% career average, 28% on the year. The Djoke is something like 41% return games won. I think Isner has this one.

But Simon sucks on clay -- well he did win Hamburg last year :shrug:. Similar speeds to IW :shrug:.

Hamburg is a poor man's Acapulco :o Those 500 points can't fall soon enough.

Just checked out some videos of Simon/Isner. He can't get a read on the Isner serve. He has a bad record against Karlovic too, the only win he got was on clay and that was in a breaker in the 3rd set.

Johnny Isner for the win although my heart goes out to the Bulge King.

When Simon will use his brain he should win this, maybe even in straight, in 3 if he loose TB. Their only match at USO was close and Isner was in better form. Simon should do 2 things and he must win -

1.get everything back ala Melzer - just get it back in play it will frustrate Isner that he is not getting so many free points.Simon has decent ROS, just need to stand few metres behind baseline and get every ball he can back in play in rallies i like his chances he can redirect pace and make his opponents to make errors.

2.Another thing, Isner in interview said Monaco´s serve was bothering him, despite his serve is not good he was going for high percentage. If Simon can FS go for high percentage, that means move him lef, right, not going for bombs, he can move him and dictate immediately after his serve and won´t be under pressure of 2nd serves, if he has high FS%.

About court speed and who likes it more, i think for both slow HC is great surface, Isner has enough time for better timing, higher bounce means balls are getting into his striking zone, also more time for his deffense, movement.

Simon´s advantage here he can get everything back and Isner can´t hit through him so easily.

If Isner wins, he saves tennis. If Simon wins, he saves tennis. If either win, tennis loses.

Isner in 2.

The fact that this is a quarter final of a masters event is just horrible.

Anybody know what is ranking will be after the tournament if he loses here or makes the semis?

He will be 11th whether win or lose tonight. If Almagro wins today and John lose he'll be still 12th.
