American fans are gearing up for big-serving rookie sensation John Isner against world No. 1 Roger Federer on Saturday at the US Open. Turns out a good number of players are also looking forward to seeing how the almost-untouchable Isner serve stacks up against the almost-untouchable all-around game of the Swiss.
American Robby Ginepri added his assessment to the match-up:
“I actually saw him in the locker room about 20 minutes ago,” Ginepri said after his win Friday at the US Open. “I was talking to him about the match tomorrow, saying, ‘You can do it.’ I was like, ‘You got to serve well to beat him.’ I was like, ‘You already do it, so it’s a plus (smiling).’ He’s a little anxious to get out there. It’s going to be fun to watch. But he’s got to believe that he can upset Federer if he has a chance.”
Ginepri says with Isner’s delivery an upset is a possibility.
“With a serve like that, anyone’s got a chance,” Ginepri said. “You know, it’s tough to ever doubt what Roger can do out there. It will be an interesting match, put it that way.”
