Isner vs Fritz (By: Stanioooo)
2nd round match in Auckland, New Zealand between John Isner and Taylor Fritz.
Both players are from the USA, I can't find their official matches, but they have to know each other's style perfectly well as compatriots.
Fritz is much younger, player from the next generation, but still has enough experience in the tour to challenge Isner. In his first two matches for 2019 he showed very good serve- against Kudla he lost 6:7 7:6 4:6 after two tiebreaks in the first two sets. Against Copil here in Auckland he also played three sets without tiebreaks, but you can't compare Copil with Isner's serve at all. The American has much more powerful and he will rely on it against Fritz who also showed he can play very good on return.
We will see what will happen, that's the first match for Isner in 2019 and I give equal chances to both of them to progress in the QFs, but one thing looks very tempting for me and that's a tiebreak in the 1st set. Both of them are very good servers, Fritz is better on return for me, but he is expected not to have many chances against bomber on serve like John. So, tiebreak from me here as a beginning of the match. The odds started to drop seriously..
