John Isner vs Nuno Borges – Match Predictions

John Isner to Win

John Isner is poised to claim victory in this matchup against Nuno Borges at the French Open. With his towering height and powerful serves, Isner’s formidable presence on the court will prove challenging for his opponent to overcome. While Borges has shown promise with his agility and shot-making abilities, he may struggle to match the sheer force and experience that Isner brings to the table. The Portuguese has struggled to give his best on the ATP tour and will find it challenging against the American, who has progressed past the first round since 2011.

3-1 to John Isner

While both Isner and Borges have struggled on the ATP tour in 2023, it is difficult to pick the Portuguese over the American. This is not only due to his exceptional abilities, particularly his thunderous serves but also his remarkable track record at the French Open and experience in Grand Slam events. However, it will not be easy given Isner’s recent limited match time. Nevertheless, the American is well-suited to excel in this matchup and is the favorite to secure a convincing 3-1 victory in this highly anticipated encounter.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the French Open.

John Isner

John Isner’s tennis activity has faced significant limitations since the pandemic hiatus, and this trend has continued into 2023. In the past five months, he has played in only 11 matches, with the most recent one taking place in Houston last month. Sadly, he arrives at the French Open on the back of a five-match losing streak. Remarkably, Isner’s performance and results at the French Open have been quite impressive, reaching the round of 16 three times at the clay tournament and has managed to avoid first-round exits since 2011.

Nuno Borges

Nuno Borges has faced challenges in transitioning his form from the Challenger level to the main tour this year. However, he has still performed reasonably well by winning matches in four tour-level events over the past five months. Recently, he impressed at the Rome Masters, reaching the second round. Borges made his debut in Grand Slam tournaments at last year’s French Open and later made a name for himself at the US Open, where he upset the in-form Ben Shelton in a thrilling five-set first-round match.
