Isner’s Fine Record in Indian Wells

Isner has a fine record in Indian Wells, reaching the fianl in 2012, only to lose to Roger Federer. Two years later he reached the semi-final stage, and, in addition, he has three fourth round appearances to his name, including in 2019, the last time the event was held.

He has actually been in five Masters finals, although the only one that he won was in Miami three years ago.

Coming into this year, the big serving American had not bene in the best of form, but he won his first senior title in two years in Atlanta, his 15th in all.

From there he went to Toronto, where he got to the semi-finals before losing to Daniil Medvedev.

A third round appearance in Cincinnati followed, but he has lost his last two matches – beaten in the first round of the US Open by Brandon Nakashima and in the Laver Cup by Alexander Zverev, although he did take a set off the world number four.

Nishioka Belies Recent Form

The Japanese number two had been in terrible form coming into this tournament.

Since losing to Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia in the second round of Wimbledon, he had not won a single match in the main draw of any tournaments he had entered since.

He would not have been full of confidence then, as he went on court for his match with Federico Delbonis of Argentina, the world number 44.

But, in  a first set that was largely dominated by serve, it was Nishioka who forced the only break and assumed the advantage.

He was pegged back through , when he dropped his own serve early in the second set, and, although he then levelled, immediately was broken again, meaning that a third se was required.

The Argentine appeared to have the upper hand when a sequence of three dropped service games left him a break-up, but three more drops restored equity  and the match went to a tie-break.

And it was the Japanese who proved the stronger player down the final stretch, sealing the win with his first match point.

Isner v Nishioka Prediction and Tip

Nishioka may have beaten Isner at Wimbledon earlier this year, but this is a tournament in which the American has a good record and will want to maintain it. Given Nishioka’s recent form struggles as well, it is hard to see beyond an American victory.
