The German Mischa Zverev will face the North-American John Isner in the 3rd round of the main draw of this US Open.
We will have a duel between two good servers here. The German Zverev, who despite having appeared sooner than his brother in the circuit, never had the same success as the other Zverev is still a player that plays using the serve & volley style.
His success on grass isn’t a coincidence and he usually does well in faster surfaces too, since it is where his style works better.
He has a good serve and he combines that with an arsenal of volleys and a very aggressive style. And despite his brother’s bigger success, it is no exaggeration to say that the German is probably in the best moment of his ATP career right now.
In 2017 he has had very good campaigns. He reached the Quarter-Finals in the Australian Open, beating this same Isner in the 2nd round. He also reached the final in Geneve, the semi-finals in Stuttgart and 3rd round in Wimbledon.
John Isner is one of the best players in the current panorama of North-American tennis, along with Querrey, with both players being great servers.
Isner has a monstrous and efficient serve, fired from the peak of his more than 2 metres of height, which becomes a very effective weapon, especially on the faster surfaces. The American currently sits in the 15th position of the ATP Rankings.
John Isner vs Mischa Zverev – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the head-to-head record between these two players we have two wins for each player.
I will not say that they have the same style. But there are definitely some similarities.
Both are good servers, both look for a more aggressive playing style, with short points and exchanges, and they don’t allow their opponent to impose a high pace.
But the home advantage has always been an aspect in favour of Isner.
He thrives here and with this draw, he has a huge chance to try and get the US Open title this year, which was something that was ridiculous at the beginning of the year.
A game between good servers on a fast surface makes me believe in longer sets, with a lot of games.
