Match: John Isner vs. Steve Darcis Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Wednesday, 31 August, 2016
20th seed John Isner overcame his countryman Frances Tiafoe in the 1st round, completing 3:6 4:6 7:6 6:2 7:6 comeback.
It was his only second comeback from two sets down and what a better moment for that because the match was great and both players put up a great fight till the last point. And now he will play against Steve Darcis, who also played a 5-setter and also made an epic comeback from two sets down against Jordan Thompson from Australia. He saved a match point in the 3rd set which makes the comeback even more impressive.
You can only imagine how motivated will be both Isner and Darcis in the 2nd round. Isner’s aim here is to reach 4th round and to play against Novak Djokovic. If Isner wins against Darcis, he will play either Ernesto Escobedo or Kyle Edmund in the 3rd round, so this is a great opportunity for the American to find some winning rhythm. Isner is without a doubt the better player, he loves playing in front of the amazing home crowd. I expect him to win in 3 or maximum 4 sets here.
