Isner vs Tsitsipas
4th round @Wimbledon.
John Isner has won 3 rounds here so far but I would say unexpectedly he is yet to play tiebreak in the opening set. That was huge surprise we didn't see additional games in the opening sets when Isner's matches are in question. Cause he is one of the most profitable players for such option. The reason is his huge serv that is hard to be broken but on the other side not too big player on the return. So basically, when he faces another at least decent server, then 7-6 or 7-5 sets are almost guaranteed.
Why it wasn't like that so far on this season Wimbledon? Well, we can say that his previous opponents might not be too good for this types of bets. I expected to see long opening set when Isner faced Bemelmans but instead we saw additional games only in the third, fourth as well fifth set back then. Also in the opening round against Maden, after short first set, we saw tiebreak in the second as well 7-5 set in the third.
But today's opponent is the most difficult for Isner so far. Also probably the best server anong Isner's opponents so far. I think we will see this time that TB in the opening set, probably couples more later on.
BTW, Isner has arrived to London with nice 8/3 in previous 11 matches when Tiebreak in the opening set is on question. All that was on clay where it's more difficult TB to occur. So, now on grass this option should be even more profitable. But, it wasn't in the first three rounds. Still, now seems like is nice chance to bet TB in the first.
