Following his failure in Atlanta, John Isner will attempt to improve his performance at Los Cabos Open. His first test will be against Australian Rinky Hijikata.

Hijikata to Win a Set
Rinky will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to defeat legendary tennis icons. Isner lost the first set 2-1 in his most recent match, and the final two sets were decided in tiebreaks.
Despite being favored, Isner has lost two consecutive matches. I think the 22-year-old will win at least one set.
First Set: Over 10.5 Games
John Isner’s overall performance has been influenced by his physical performance and age. He was formerly ranked eighth in the world, but he is a long way from regaining that position.
The Australian tennis player has three times as many hardcourt victories as his opponent. Hijikata will be a difficult opponent from the start of this match, so I predict there will be more than 10.5 games in the first set.
Rinky Hijikata vs John Isner Preview
Take a look at the analysis and breaking news for each competitor and more 2023 tennis match predictions.
The Australian tennis player has failed to go past the second round in three consecutive tournaments. In fact, he had three wins and three losses in the previous month. The 22-year-old is now ranked 114th in the ATP rankings and has never made the top 100.
This season, he has rotated between main tournaments and Challengers. His one victory this year came in Burnier Challenger. He reached the semi-finals of the Libema Open. Otherwise, his involvement has been limited.
The senior tennis player is having one of his worst seasons as a professional. The 38-year-old has only won seven of his 18 outings. His best performance came in Dallas when he was a finalist.
He recently had a strong showing in Newport, reaching the semi-finals. Isner hoped to fare better in Atlanta, but he was upset in the first round by Dominik Koepfer.
Hijikata vs Isner Head to Head
Neither of these two players has played each other, and perhaps the difference in age and experience is what defines this duel. In the ATP rankings, they are only 10 places apart, but neither is ranked in the top 100.
Isner’s winning percentage is 0%, after losing all six of his matches on this surface. Hijikata has won 60%, in fact, 17 of his 26 wins have come on hardcourt.
