In this way, we offer you real data and pick objectively. To set the right bet for John Isner vs Brandon Nakashima, read our free predictions and tips for this match
Brandon Nakashima to Emerge Victorious
Although Isner is the more experienced player here, we haven’t been very impressed by his recent form. Barring a solid run at the ATP 250 event in Dallas, where he reached the final, Isner has mostly struggled. As a matter of fact, the 37 year old has only been past the first second round of one tournament since last year’s US Open; he has also battled with injuries recently. Furthermore, Isner has two losses in three encounters with Brandon Nakashima. Considering the 37 year old’s recent struggles, we are backing Nakashima to reach the next round.
Two Total Sets
We’ve already established that these players have met three times. It’s also fair to point out that those encounters have mostly been one-sided. In fact, three of three clashes between Isner and Nakashima ended in straight sets. Taking everything into account, we believe that this match will end in two sets.
John Isner vs Brandon Nakashima Preview
We’ve gotten our predictions out of the way; let’s take a look at both players, and how they’ve fared these past few weeks.
After his disappointing first round exit at the Australian Open, John Isner bounced back at the 250 event in Dallas, reaching the final. This should be a tricky fixture for the American, as he has lost two of three meetings with tonight’s opponent. It’ll be interesting to see how he matches up against his compatriot today.
On the other hand, Brandon Nakashima hasn’t had much success since he won the ATP Next Gen Finals late last year. The 21 year old has played four matches so far this year, losing three of them. Nakashima will need to be at his best if he intends to defeat Isner today. He’ll fancy his chances of advancing to the second round ahead of Isner.
