Mental tricks at their best.
When you enter the court to face Russell, you know there are big chances of being mentally destroyed.
The great players like the real number one (Mardy Fish) fall to the almighty Iron Mike when his mental tactics are ON.
Now that Isner decided he will be mug on clay again, Iron Mike is still the only hope for american tennis in that surface.
