By the end of the match the pressure told and the confidence this gave Isner transferred to his return game as he won the 4th set 6-2 and was climbing into Federer's serve and breaking him and will with some of the biggest return winners you will see!
Except they are. That's how come the big fella is a combined 1-4 versus Noel and Murray.
I'd love to see Isner do well at the AO - but those 2 guys are his worst nightmare.
