The Line: -- Over/Under:
French tennis player, Adrian Mannarino has made it into the quarterfinals of the 2019 ATP Delray Beach Open. At this stage of the tournament, Mannarino will play against John Isner from the United States.
Adrian Mannarino beat Denis Istomin in the previous match to make it into the quarterfinals. It was a good win for Mannarino as he completed the job in straight sets. During the victory, Adrian Mannarino impressed with his serving as he won 77% of his service points which resulted in the Frenchman winning 90% of his service games. In addition to his service, Mannarino was solid while receiving as he broke Istomin’s serve on 3 occasions. This is expected to be a much tougher match for Adrian Mannarino as he is playing the number 2 seed in Isner’s home country.
Looking at John Isner, the American was very impressive in the previous round as he beat Lukas Lacko in straight sets. As expected from Isner, the number 2 seed served very well as he hit 18 aces while winning 97% of his first serve points. John Isner won all of his service games which allowed him to control the match. It has been extraordinary watching John Isner serve this season as he has only lost 2 service games in 2019. With such a great record on his side, John Isner will be very tough to stop in this match.
John Isner and Adrian Mannarino have played 7 times in the past. Isner has a very strong record against Mannarino of 6-1. The most recent match between Isner and Mannarino was in 2016 at ATP Atlanta where the American won in straight sets.
With everything taken into consideration, I am picking John Isner to win this match. Isner has looked in very good form heading into this match. With the advantage of playing in the United States, I think John Isner will be too strong with the support of the crowd on his side.
