John Isner is the latest tennis giant ( 6'9'' 205cm ... that is from his bio, think he is taller !) , with a really massive serve on the scene. Unknown three weeks ago, he won a future, followed by a challenger and then, the very next week, made the final in Washington. Taking the scalps of Henman, Becker, Haas, Monfils, before losing to Roddick . He served an incredible 144 aces in his 6 matches, including 30 against his opponent today, in what is , obviously, their only meeting to date.

Becker, is not in the best of form and has lost in the first round of his last 5 tournaments and in 8 of the last 10, 12 of his last 17. Infact, he has won just 7 of his last 23 matches.

Isner has had a weeks rest and should be ready ro resume his meteoric rise into the top 100.

4.5 points Isner to beat Becker 1.699 Pinnacle // similar should be available on the exchanges.

I will be back later with some football news.
