So Bryan Tuck, Kyle McCain and I have a bet as to how far Isner would go. The bet is if 1) Isner loses in the rounds 1, 2 or 3, I win a case of balls, 2) Isner loses in round 4, Kyle wins a case of balls, 3) Isner gets anywhere past round 4, Bryan gets the case of balls. Thanks to Hal Wagner, who is supplying the case of balls, we have a little extra excitement to Isner's march to win the French. :)

Doesn't past round 4 means beating Nadal?
So the Isner path would be Mathieu 2nd round, Granollers 3rd round, Ferrer (likely) 4th round, Murray (likely) quarters, Nadal semis, Djokovic or Fed (likely) final.
The heat is on!
Two more rounds for your win Tim. I think Big John plays today.
Maybe Mathieu will do it. He ended Kuerten's career. He's heartless enough to do it.
whoooops I was thinking of Ferrer.... mhhh hehe
One's short and one's tall. lol
Yikes, that is a brutal draw.
Yeah, Hal. That's what I thought. lol
I think John's opposition may just take it laying down considering his really tough draw. He wins against these dudes and I think we can crown him Prince of clay?
Hah! Prince of clay. Where'd ya come up with that moniker?
John has no chance at the finals. He was impressive last year against Nadal but honestly I don't think he'll make it more than four rounds. If he's able to make it past Mathieu, Ferrer will finish him.
