Stefanos Tsitsipas vs John Isner: Prediction and Betting Tips

20:00, Jun 04 2021
Stefanos Tsitsipas vs John Isner prediction for Friday’s third-round clash of the French Open at Roland Garros in Paris. After winning their first two matches, Tsitsipas and Isner face in a much-awaited matchup in the third round of the 2021 French Open. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Stefanos Tsitsipas in good form and looking to advance

The world number five Stefanos Tsitsipas got off to a flying start in this year’s French Open. The Greek has emerged as one of the most exciting players on tour and has climbed the rankings in record time. Tsitsipas had lost against John Isner his first two matches but as he improved he now leads their H2H matches by 3-2. This is their first meeting on clay and Tsitsipas is the favorite to win with the bookies.

Tsitsipas has an 18-3 win/loss record on clay this year. He won the Monte Carlo and Lyon Opens, reached the final in Barcelona and the quarter-final in Madrid. In his first two matches in Roland Garros, the Greek won without losing a set and hitting 76 winners in both games. Tsitsipas is showing solid performances so far but he faces a player with a different style where he needs to focus on his returns.

Can Isner keep his form against a tougher opponent

John Isner had played just four matches on clay before the French Open all of them in the Madrid Open where he reached the quarter-finals and lost to Thiem. The world number 34 had a good start in Paris nonetheless, winning both of his first two matches without dropping a set. 

Isner’s first serve will be the key decider of this match. In his first two matches, the American served 45 aces in both matches. Isner also had a good average of winning the points behind his first serve with 87%. Isner’s serve is yet to be broken, he saved all five break points against him in both matches. From the baseline as well Isner is playing remarkably well hitting 99 winners.

Key Points

  • Tsitsipas has played on average 32.2 games per match in the French Open since last year
  • Tsitsipas has played on average 9.19 games per set in the French Open since last year
  • Isner has played on average 9.14 games per set in the French Open since last year
  • Isner has won 165 points in the French Open since last year

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs John Isner Prediction

This match will be one of the most looked forward to in the third round of the French Open. Tsitsipas has beaten Isner in their last three matches on hard courts in straight sets. That means the Greek is not intimidated by Isner’s big serve and he may have answers for the big serves.

John Isner relies on his serve. If he doesn’t serve an ace or gets a weak return to finish with a winner, Isner will have to play from the baseline in which he might struggle against a player like Tsitsipas. Hence the importance of the 1st serve percentage.

Isner has played three tiebreaks so far in two matches and we think we will see other close sets in this match.
