Johnson vs Jung (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from Delray Beach ATP between Johnson (#34) and Jung (#131)
Jung is 29 years old but these last two years have been his best in tennis, he reached a career high ranking of 114 last year and he has started this year really well. He was great in Dallas and most recently New York where he defeated Ramanathan and Tiafoe before losing to Querrey in three sets.
Johnson is in arguably the worst shape he has ever been in, he is still not fully ready to be the player he was before his father passed away which took a huge emotional toll on him and despite showing signs of a recovery during the first half of 2018, his last win was versus Istomin in US Open on August 28th. He has since then lost 9 matches in a row. He will, of course, break that trend any time now and its possible that it comes against Jung but if it does then I do not see that being with a big margin at all because Jung is just an amazing player at the moment.
The difference in form for these two guys cancels, in my opinion, out the fact that Johnson is a much better player generally and I think anybody that has seen Jung play recently would agree that he has a big chance of covering this handicap of 3,5 games. He has a playing style that is perfect against out of form players as he covers so much ground and is able to frustrate opponents by making them hit the extra shot every time and Johnson having merely three matches played this season means his groundstrokes will be stiff and he will be forced into hitting plenty of errors
