I'd love to see Isner do well at the AO - but those 2 guys are his worst nightmare.
Murray and Djokovic are two excellent returners! But the fact is Isner won his last match against either of those two last year at Indian Wells! And it is a long time since he faced Murray!
Of course having variation is nice etc but Isner can literally hold at will against the majority of the tour then go for bust in the breakers!
The match v Novak last year is a classic example winning two tiebreakers after losing the middle set pretty convincingly!
