Reasons for betting on Mischa Zverev vs John Isner overview
John Isner and Mischa Zverev are encountering in the third round of the US Open. Both players are in a solid form, and they are entering this contest with only one desire, and that is to win.
Isner will have the home crowd behind him, and that could be a small advantage. However, that could produce a certain dose of the pressure, which Zverev might use.
Be ready for many aces, strong forehands, and long sets.
Mischa Zverev overview
The older and less talented Zverev had some oscillations during the tournaments before Flushing Meadows. And it seems that the German continued in the same manner at this competition. Two marathon matches, both won after 5 sets and a lot of excitement. This is his current result in New York. In the first round, Mischa defeated Thai-Son Kwiatkowski with 3-2, 7-6, 4-6, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3. In the second stage, Benoit Paire was the victim, and Zverev won 3-2 6-3, 6-2, 3-6 , 6-7, 7-5. So far, the 27th player in the ATP standings spent 7 hours and 20 minutes on the court, which is too much. It is questionable, whether will he have enough energy for the upcoming challenges.
John Isner overview
The powerful server had fewer problems in the first two matches. He only lost one set, but we have to say that the draw was not so harsh on him. In the opening match, Isner defeated 65th player in the world, Pierre Hugues Herbert 3-1, 6-1, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3. The next challenge was the South Korean, Hyeon Chung, and he was more convincing defeating him with 3-0 6-3, 6-4, 7-5.
Isner’s level of play is at a high level lately, which was evident in Cincinnati, where he reached the semifinals, losing eventually from the later winner of the tournament, Grigor Dimitrov.
It is his turf and his country, and he is probably aiming at least the quarterfinals here.
Head to head matches
Both players won two times when meeting against one another. But the more important thing is that they already had two matches during this year.
Zverev won both, one at Australian Open 3-2, and other in Geneva 2-1.
Before these losses, Isner had a positive record, beating Zverev twice without a single set lost.
Prediction for Mischa Zverev vs John Isner tip
The logical thing is to play on Isner here. There are many reasons why should we do this. First and the most important is the fact that the German had spent almost twice as much time on the court. When you are playing at Grand Slams, this is very important, especially when the schedule is mixed up because of outside factors.
When we add the fact that Isner is always playing excellent in America and that he reached a very good form, his victory is almost certain.
The second suggestion, in this case, is Isner wins in 4 sets.
