Isner vs Zeballos
Second round between Isner and Zebalos. I will try with completely the same bet as the last time when Isner met with young Rubin. It's over in the opening set. Back then it didn't end well cause Rubin had one poor service game early, Isner took advantage of it and closed the opening set with 6:3. But as usual when he doesn't deliver in opening, Isner played TB in the next set. And not just that but also the third one ended in Tiebreak.
So, clearly my choice was good but I was simply unlucky.
As I said back then, Isner very often plays TB sets. In the opening set this has become almost a rule. Even on clay, Isner almost always deliver on such betting option. Before first round here in Paris, Isner was 6 of 7 (all on clay) when playing TB in the first set is in question. He is amazing on serve and difficult to be broken but on return not too much chance for him. That's why he is so often involved in TB sets.
So basically, all we need is to opponent is some player of decent quality, first of all with decent serv. This time in Zeballos I think we have that. Player from Argentina is clay court specialist and although Isner is huge favorite by the offered odds, I think we will see very tied match, especially early on.
In 2 of the 3 mutual meetings, it was over 10.5 in the first and also four sets overall in those three matches went over this line.
