John Isner vs Bradley Klahn – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On this encounter, I expect a truly balanced 1st set where both will hold their serves and therefore, the set should be solved on the tie-break, where I give the advantage to John Isner.
These tennis players have faced each other 4 years ago on Winston Salem and exactly that has happened, with Isner winning the tie-break on the 1st set.
I don’t believe there will be breaks at an early stage and on the tie-break, Isner is definitely the stronger player, due to the quality of his serve and his experience on these situations.
The odds are very interesting for Isner to win 7-6 on the 1st set, and they have value.
|Isner 7-6 SET 1||
