On January 5, Daniil Medvedev will meet with John Isner. What will end this fight? – read in our prediction.
In the previous match, Medvedev defeated Fabio Fognini (1-6, 6-1, 6-3). The match was not easy for the Russian. Daniel made a lot of mistakes. For example, on his account four double errors. In addition, he did not play in the best way on the second serve, having won only 58% of the goals.
It is worth noting that before the pair meeting against the Italians, Medvedev asked for a medical time out, citing lower back pain. Perhaps because of this, he did not play in the best way in the confrontation with Fognini
Isner failed to bring his match against Casper Ruud to victory. Despite winning the first set, the American failed to squeeze the Norwegian. As a result, John lost with a score of 7-6, 6-7, 5-7.
For the entire match, the US representative made 33 aces and won 86% of the goals on first serve. But in the draws, Isner was weaker and often inferior to Ruud in this component of the game. Recently, Jorn has been losing tie-breaks increasingly. Apparently age makes itself felt.
Statistics and personal meetings
- This will be the first personal meeting between these rivals.
- Last year, on a hard Medvedev won 34 matches. Isner – 22.
- In 7 of the last 10 sets of Isner, at least ten games were played.
Daniil Medvedev vs John Isner Prediction
Medvedev seems to have minor health problems. It is unlikely that in this case it is worth waiting for an easy victory for the Russian. With the filing of the American, everything is in order. Most likely, John will pound aces again and try to drag him to a tie-break. Only in this case will he have a chance to beat Daniel.
He is unlikely to succeed in defeating the Russian, but he will probably be able to give the fight. In this regard, we propose to add to the victory of Medevedev an option with a riding match.
Our prediction is the victory of Daniil Medvedev
