Match: John Isner vs. Frances Tiafoe Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Monday, 29 August, 2016
20th seed John Isner is gonna face his countryman Frances Tiafoe in the US Open’s 1st round.
Isner is definitely having a bad season so far and this tournament looks like a good chance for him to reach 4th round and a meeting with Novak Djokovic. He was a little bit lucky with the draw and he can’t afford a loss against world number 124 Frances Tiafoe. Tiafoe got in the main draw with a wild card and will give his best to show everyone that he deserves to be in the main draw.
The 18-year old still doesn’t have a win in the main draw of a major and Isner is really an opponent he would like to avoid. This will be their first match against each other. The 208cm Isner is a player who rarely lose against any player outside the top 100 and I think that this will be a routine 3-setter for him.
