Steve Johnson vs John Isner – US Open- Steve Johnson is a 30 year old North American player who is currently in the 63rd position in the ATP Rankings.
Steve Johnson vs John Isner – Johnson is a very offensive player who serves well and just like most Americans, he prefers to finish the point in 3 or 4 shots at most.
Johnson knows how to stay in the rally when playing at the bottom of the court, using a competent left slice, however his game is quite offensive and it’s a more suitable one for fast surfaces.
He is also a quite interesting player when playing at the net.
He has been competing in exhibition tournaments to keep up the shape but the truth is that he started off with the wrong foot by losing in 3 sets against the Spanish player Portero in the Cincinnati qualifiers.
Last year he lost in the 1st round.
John Isner is a 35 year old also North American player, who is currently in the 21st position of the ATP Rankings.
Isner has one of the best serves of the circuit and that is his best weapon by far.
We have to praise what Isner has improved in terms of play at the bottom of the court.
That allowed him to be far more competitive and reach the Top10, having been the number 8 player in the world.
His season hasn’t been bad so far and he even reached the ATP Acapulco semi finals.
In the Cincinnati Masters, Isner defeated the Polish player Hubert Hurkacz in 2 sets, John Millman in 3, and end up losing against Stefanos Tsitsipas with 2 tiebreaks.
Here in the US Open it’s a best of five sets tournament and it’s always a special event to this North American that wants to proceed to the next round.
Head to head: 5-4 Johnson
Steve Johnson is one of the few American players with a positive record in the H2H against Isner, and what i’m expecting here is a balanced encounter since the first set.
The players know each other well, so there is no secrets about the way of playing from both.
Johnson should keep his good service games and i don’t believe Isner will break his serve in an initial phase, so the possibility of a tiebreak in the 1st set is quite high.

Steve Johnson vs John Isner – Prediction:
I’m opting for the over 9,5 games in the first set of this match, a bet that doesn’t present big odds but that clearly covers the risk since the tendency of this match in the first service games will be of total dominance from the big servers and i believe that after 8 games played we will already have a 4-4 in the scoreboard and therefore, a bet won.
