On January 17 2020 John Isner and Hugo Umber faced each other in a match from ATP, Australian Open in Melbourne .
The tournament in Auckland is so far more than successful for Isner. First, the US representative defeated last year’s competition winner Tennis Sandgren (7-6, 6-7. 6-3), and then in two sets completed the match against Kyle Edmund (7-6, 7-6). Note that in the game against the British tennis player, Isner walked away from break points nine times – at the right time John was helped out by a powerful serve.
Umber in five games of the current season scored four victories. This is an excellent indicator for the French tennis player, who occupies 57th place in the ATP rating. At the competitions in Auckland, Umber defeated the Norwegian Casper Ruud (7-6, 2-6, 6-3), the Italian Marco Cecchinato (6-1, 6-4) and the representative of Canada Denis Shapovalov (7-5, 6-4 ) For three fights in Auckland, Umber completed 28 innings right through.

John Isner vs Hugo Umber Prediction
Isner is lucky at the tournament in Auckland. In the last match against Kyle Edmund (7-6, 7-6), John had to play break points nine times. And he played them all – at the right moment the American tennis player was rescued by his powerful crown. How the upcoming match will turn out is hard to say. However, if you recall the face-to-face meeting of tennis players last summer, then Umber got to break points seven times in it – he failed to realize any of them, but he probably made some conclusions on that meeting. And if in the upcoming match he plays more efficiently, then he can count on the final success.
Our prediction – Hugo Umber to win
