Jordan Thompson vs. John Isner
|Date & Time||Tuesday August 6, 2019, 12:00 PM (EDT)|
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
The Line: -- Over/Under:
American tennis superstar, John Isner is set to play at the 2019 ATP Rogers Cup in Montreal. Isner will begin his tournament against Jordan Thompson from Australia.
Jordan Thompson enters this match in decent form following a solid Washington Open where the Australian made it through to the third round. Thompson was eliminated by Stefanos Tsitsipas. Outside of the Washington Open, Thompson has been in good form as he made the final of the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships and the semifinal of Antalya Open. The hard-court has not been the best surface for Jordan Thompson as he has won only 55% of his matches. This is expected to be a very tough match for Jordan Thompson as he is playing an elite opponent in John Isner.
Looking at John Isner, the American seems to always find his best form at this stage of the season. Isner had a poor Atlanta Open and Washington Open but the American has still looked in good form as he recently won the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships. Isner has struggled with injuries in 2019 but despite the setbacks, he has still managed to produce some big results. In 2019, John Isner has made 5 semifinals which included a final appearance at the Miami Masters. John Isner has won 10 hard-court tournaments and he looks very confident as he enters this match.
Jordan Thompson and John Isner have played each other twice in the past with Isner winning on both occasions. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the New York Open where Isner won in straight sets.
Jordan Thompson has been playing well and will be confident but I see him losing this match. John Isner seems to always find his best form at this stage of the season and he has shown that in 2019 by winning the Hall of Fame Open. Isner looks in very good form and I see him being too good for Thompson in this match.
