Just saw the draw from Houston and this match looks to have good comedy potential at worst and a clay court classic at best.

Roitman and Isner, will Roitman be able to bring his escopeta and shoot down Isner. Roitman stands a 1km behind the baseline to return serve from Volandri. So he will be standing in Mexico trying to return Isner's serve.

The Isner groundies on clay will be interesting to see, and the movement. Will he be like a gazelle or a giraffe on ice skates.

Heh, should be funny. For some other possibly comedic matchups I like Massu-Querrey and Ginepri-Sela.

Querrey is a chance against Massu. Sela is no clay genius, but he should get the W against Ginepri.

Massú fought more than 3 hours against Niemeyer on clay and with even 4500 chileans supporting him. So it would be not strange stuff to lose against Querrey.

Isner on clay? How he will react after a dropshot from the opponent? probably he won't even move to reach one.

I hope Roitman to win this, but you never know :shrug:

:lol:

Should be a funny one. An early indication of RG success, I fully expect these two in the final in Paris.

It will be funny if Isner get some of the kickers going, though River Oaks is meant to be very slow. Lucky Roitman is a tall guy, because Isner would be kicking them over Sela's head.

Roitman should win it; Isner fails even on hardcourt these days. I'd be surprised at other results.

Roitman should win here but it will be hilarious. Sela-Ginepri is also very interesting, it is fair to say that Bilbo's granny on the wheelchair should be considered a favourite against Ginepri on clay.

Good to see the answer Result is irrelevant, it's all about the comedy was the winning option.
