Tommy Paul vs John Isner – Match Predictions

As both players set their sights on a semi-final spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match

John Isner to Cover +3.5 Games

To be fair, John Isner has not particularly enjoyed his best form these past couple of months. However, the 38 year old has looked really solid in this competition so far, defeating Alex Bolt and Corentin Moutet. It’s also important to point out Isner squared off against Tommy Paul on two occasions, and he covered the spread in both of those clashes. Taking everything into account, we believe that Isner will do enough to cover +3.5 games.

John Isner to Emerge Victorious

Being the top seeded player in this competition, it’s no surprise that Tommy Paul is the favourite to win today’s match. However, we aren’t entirely sure of the 26 year old’s chances. We would like to point out that Tommy Paul hasn’t fared well against John Isner in the past; he lost two of two previous skirmishes between these players, winning one set in the process. That said, we would like to go with a relatively bolder pick here, and that’s why we’re backing Isner to come out on top.

Tommy Paul vs John Isner Preview

We’ve established our Tommy Paul vs John Isner predictions, let’s see how these players have fared in recent weeks.

Tommy Paul

Given that Tommy Paul is the highest seeded player in this competition, he didn’t get to play in the first round. The 26 year old player kicked off his campaign against world number 434 Ethan Quinn, a match he didn’t have too much trouble winning. Paul will hope to get his first victory over John Isner today.

John Isner

Unlike today’s opponent, John Isner featured in the first round of this tournament, where he defeated Alex Bolt in three sets. The 38 year old proceeded to face Corentin Moutet in the second round, dispatching him in straight sets. This will be a tricky fixture for Isner, as he takes on an in-form Tommy Paul. It’ll be interesting to see how he matches up against his compatriot.
