If he faced Isner, he'd get pushed all the way. When you've got a serve like that, you can make things happen the good old-fashioned way - force a couple of breakers, and a few points could swing it.
Davydenko has always pushed fed look at their matches in rotterdam and the 2010 aussie. Tomic Beat DJOKOVIC in perth! and with Raonic its been last set tiebreak last two times they played. Fed has had the toughest draw out of the top 3 and he hasnt even gotten broken forget losing a set.
