You should be saying things like "pure luck this olderer", "Joke draw" and stuff.

But deep in your hearts you know Isner is a worst match-up than Tipsy, but well. tardz gonna tard

You guys can imagine this. It's bizzare. Isner was like a machine. Tipsy playing very very good. Isner with 2 lucky returns in the 12th game of the 1st set and Tipsy fucked it up on 5-2 in the tb and 6-5 on his serve. And stupid umpire changed the call from the linesman to call a DF on MP. Fucking retard. But IF Isner serves like this he will win gold. Gold I tell you! But he will not :( Tipsy didn't deserve this shit :sad:

82% 1st serves in (86% in the 2nd), 92% points won after 1st serve, 13/13 on second serve. 22 aces, 0 DFs.

Oh really? If Fed and Novak would be in the top 10 with 8 other servebots, I think everyone would enjoy tennis more. The "Servebots" produce effective offensive tennis which Tipsarevic can only dream about. Being able to win backhand to backhand rallies shouldnt be top 10 material.

Ill be honest with you, and Ill say I didnt. However I do know how it probably panned out- Isner managed to get a very high first serve percentage, and Tipsy mugged out one of his service games in the first set. If Isner>Tipsy on grass, which is Isners worst surface, I cant really say anything else.

This is pure BS. Isner didn't play good to say 'his worst surface'. He just served. So grass would be the BEST surface for this kind of match for him. He couldn't get shit on Tipsy's serve beside that 2 returns in that 12th game of the 1st (1 GOAt return and 1 lucky). When he gets 60% 1st serve, yes, it's his worst surface. When he gets 86% thet's unbreakable. Even if Tipsy got to the 3rd, he would lose. Only chance was to get it done in 2 tbs. And I say 2 things: 1) This Tipsy from today is for sure in the top10. 2) This Isner will win gold if he can serve like this vs Fed

I didnt say that Tipsy is not top 10 material. I said that if Isner>Tipsy today, Isner is top 8 material TODAY. And a good returner would find ways to break Isner. I think everyone except Tipsy and Tsonga would win over Isner with ease.


Also, Tipsarevic wouldnt be top 10 in previous years. Besides Massu and Robredo, he is probably the worst top 10 of the last 20 years.

No one can beat Isner with his serving performance today. Tipsy should win that tie break when he had *6:4 but tried too aggressive and put easy forehand into the net. Even if he had won that tb he would lose in 3rd, cause Isner with 82% 1st serve = unbreakable :o

branimir_iliev
08-01-2012, 08:02 PM
I wouldn't presume that Federer is a lock to beat Isner in the next match. Obviously it depends on who will execute better and may the better man win but I will say this:

Federer usually reads big servers pretty well (Roddick, Karlovic, Raonic, Isner too). Federer tends to struggle a bit more with top-tier defensive grinders (Nadal, Murray) more than anything because they push back too many of his winners and that sometimes flusters him and the ue's start to pile up. But if Roger executes well on his own serve, over the course of the match he should adapt to Isner's and make some inroads into his service games. Tipsy is in some ways more dangerous for Federer than Isner. Isner tends to be one-dimensional and if his serve falters even for a game, the match could get out of control for him in a hurry. And even if his serve is 'perfect' RF will put some rackets on those balls.

But I'll guess we'll see. Hoping Roger pulls it out.

zlaja777
08-01-2012, 08:03 PM
The way he served today, it's just too much. Makes me sick really...he hit like 10 aces in that TB only. I bet Isner will drop his level of serve against Fed, if he somehow maintains this sick 80+ first serve, it will be absolutely impossible to break him.

If I recall correctly the only time Federer has lost to a big server this year was to Isner himself on that strange Davis Cup clay. He faced Karlovic in AO with no problems, Isner in the IW final, and Raonic three times; on hard, clay, and grass (losing the first set three times to him, but ultimately winning every match).

I really don't see Isner being a problem tomorrow. :shrug:

I cant stand these servebots. I hope Fed will deliver tomorrow and remind him that there are also other strokes not just serve. Some low slices and body strokes should work well as that embarrasing girrafe always put it into the net. Dropshots are welcome as well, cant wait to see Isner running to the net like if he got 3 knees on each leg, ready to fold up like a ladder.

Playing 'cute' tennis against Isner is a bad idea. You don't want to bring him to the net, so dropshots are a no-no. To beat a guy like Isner you need to get his serve into play and then just play solid, percentage tennis, moving him around the court.

When someone like Isner is serving this big, the match really does come down to a few points here and there. Keeping concentration is really important in this scenario

Not sure what u mean by cute tennis? What is cute on good slices or body strokes? Those are the ones he can not deal with. If you just play solid regular strokes he can punish you with his forehand (the only shot I can admit he has after the serve). And drop shots worked well against him in IW, he is not Nadal to be there in time.

Slices aren't "cute" and are a great way of putting pressure on a tall guy, Roger can do low slices to Isner's BH and draw errors from there.

The key is of course serve & return well but mixing up is something those big guys hate.

I agree with you about not bringing Isner to the net, since his reach is huge and is hard to pass him.

I agree. Isner is too one-dimensional for my liking. I hope his type doesn't become the future of men's tennis. I prefer all-courters; clay court specialists and serving specialists are two polar extremes I'm not a fan of. I usually don't talk up Nadal but I would even take 2010 Nadal over Isner.

Nadal started as a clay court specialist but evolved into a defensive baseliner/counterpunching all-courter. In 2010 he even tried to be more of an offensive baseliner and was successful at that imo. Isner started as a serving specialist... and is still a serving specialist. Not much evolution there. And Isner is so boring to watch.

These retards on here saying Janko sucks and is the worst Top 10 player??? Really? John Isner is a fuckin servebot who has no game beyond his serve...When exactly has he beat anyone relevant in any relevant match(outside of a Davis Cup fluke over Fed and a bomb-serving day against Nole in IW or Miami)?? Has he ever been to the QF of a slam?? I cannot stomach watching John Isner play tennis because it's not tennis; it's just hitting ace after ace after ace. His style of play is nauseating and his movement is atrocious. I have seen WTA chicks ranked outside the Top 100 move better than him:worship:

When someone is serving like Isner did today, it doesn't matter who is on the other side of the net, they will lose. John Isner isn't Top 10 material in the slightest. He is a freakin joke and as I remember correctly got ousted by Falla at Wimbledon in R1 and Mathieu at the FO...Give me a fuckin break. Isner sucks and his "fans" are delusional. Even the commentators were practically laughing at how tentative he was on those 2nd serves today, even netting them in the TB :haha:

Janko is definitely a better all around player than Isner and the sooner Isner drops in the rankings, the better. Janko deserves to be in the Top 10 while Isner deserves to be nowhere near it. I hope Federer tears him a new one and sends him back to serve-bot camp. He should have stuck with basketball. It would have been more enjoyable watching him play that than tennis. He is a clumsy ass tree who can only hit aces to win matches and takes practically every set to a tiebreak against anyone really. If Isner was good, he wouldn't need to go to all those tiebreaks in every match. He knows his serve is all he has got and it's been repeated over and over that he doesn't have the game to go deep at a grand slam and that's the fucking truth.

It just shows how pathetic his game is that he can barely ever break an opponent to win a match. These comments about Janko are unwarranted and disgusting. He was playing really well today and Isner was serving bombs. Nothing exciting, nothing fresh. Nothing new. Nothing worthy of praise at all. I even switched over to watch Sharapova and Lisicki during the snooze-fest Isner was producing. At least those bitches were playing real tennis and fighting for points. Isner fans need to get a life and some real perspective, quickly:help:

08-02-2012, 06:25 AM
Can anyone remember the famous 5-2 point (I think it was actually 4-2 , serving for 5-2)? I know that on set point Tips hit a fh approach into the net as he looked to be coming to the net. Then the DF at MP, but I cant remember the 5-2 point

Also, what were Tipsy's Minis on John? The first one was a guess right , slashing BH return off a 1st serve that knocked Isner on his heels. But what was the 2nd one after he blew his first minibreak lead?

Remember, Tips had the lead in the TB not once, but twice. Lately Isner hasnt been giving a TB lead up to anyone - period. Tips was in position and screwed up. And with Isner's shaky stamina, who knows what would have happened in a 3rd set.

I guess so. BUT...they're actually pretty even IMO. The one thing that would make Monaco that much better, is to make one QF run at a slam. Then he is pretty much better. And not to mention, Monaco has been on the tour a bit less longer than Tipsarevic has. So in theory, he is maybe just marginally better.

Still, these two in the top 10 :facepalm:
But I suppose no one else is doing any better at the moment.

Actually there was little Tipsarevic could have done on Isner's service points. Isnerbarely missed a first serve.

The crucial point was at 6-4 when Tipsy had a SP on his own serve. He missed an easy FH into the net.

From then on Isner kept serving aces like it was children's play.
