Kyle Edmund vs John Isner Predictions
Isner is known for his powerful pitch. It is around her that the entire game of the American tennis player is being built, so much of the upcoming meeting will depend on how Edmund plays at the reception.
The last full-time meeting of the tennis players, which took place at the beginning of 2019, ended in two games and tie-breaks were played in both sets. We expect that the upcoming match will be held in an equal fight, so we propose to put Edmund with a handicap on games to win.
