Karen Khachanov vs John Isner Tennis Prediction
In August, they pitted at the 1000 Masters of Toronto. On that occasion, Karen Khachanov beat John Isner in straight sets – double 7/6.
Current number 18 in the world, Khachanov has a great season and has the potential to grow even more in the circuit. In the second round, he did not even have to work hard to eliminate Matthew Ebden, who gave up after losing the first set.
Khachanov has won seven of the last eight matches he has played, he is a good player, he is solid at the base line and he has a good forehand.On the other side, John Isner needed three sets to eliminate Mikhail Kukushkin – with a 6-3, 6-7 (2), 7-6 (1) split. Although given a set, the American did very well and was dominant with the service – it was 33 aces from Isner.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Karen Khachanov vs John Isner
Finalist of the Masters 1000 in Paris in 2016 and semi-finalist last year, Isner has a good history in the tournament and knows how to use the speed of the floor in his favor. It is also important to remember that Isner still has a chance to win a place in ATP Finals. So it is sure that he will fight hard to move forward.
From the characteristics of both, I imagine it will be a decided game in small details. And I also think bookmakers have exaggerated the Russians’ favoritism. We are handicapping +1.5 sets for Isner.
Bet Tips: Isner +1,5 sets
