Del Potro vs Isner
2018 US Open, Quarterfinals
Del Potro against Isner, two big servers but obviously Delpo is way more quality player and advantage is on his side. The only way to Isner stay competitive here is to have some really amazing day when serv is in question. He can do it, no doubt about that but for how long? I think probably only early in the match but later probably we would see chances for Delpo to break American's serv.
So, opening set over is option to think about. But I like also Del Potro to cover this short games handicap line.
Simply, Isner is depending too much on serve while Del Potro is way more complete player.
The guy from Argentina also leads 7-5 in this H2h and it's 4-2 on this hard court surface.
It's interesting they met only once on the Grand slam level. It was this season in Paris and Delpo has won there in three sets, each by 6-4 score.
Not just that Del Potro is more complete player but also his form in this season was very good. As a matter fact his current World No.3 position is his best ever, he never was so high, not even before break he had due to injury.
In 2018 Del Potro has achieved 30-6 record on hard while Isner went 16-8 so far on the same surface.
