World No 10 Isner qualified for the season-ending event for the first time in his career because Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro withdrew through injury.
However, the American was in good spirits ahead of his daunting debut, even joking that he would make light work of the world No 1.
“I think it will be really easy for me,” Isner said.
“He is the number one player in the world and he has won this event five times if I am not mistaken.
“He is the player to beat this week for sure. He is back to number one in the world and the second half of the year has been a whirlwind.
“It is a good spot for me because I don’t have much to lose. I am definitely the underdog.
“I have got to go out there and try my best, try to play loose and free and see what happens.”
