John Isner v Gregoire Barrere Head to Head

The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 37 year old American, and his French opponent, who is nine years younger.

Isner Made to Work for Second Round Berth

This will be the second consecutive French opponent that Isner has faced in Paris this year.

He began his campaign against the world number 84, Quentin Halys, and, although he did progress, he was made to work harder than he might have expected by a man more used to the Challenger tour.

As usual, Isner relied heavily on his serve, but Halys virtually matched him shot for shot in the first set, and, with nothing to separate them, it went to a tie-break which the American eventually won.

Halys, though, stayed with Isner and secured the first break of serve of the match in the second set which enabled him to level the match.

Break opportunities began to appear in the third set, and Halys dropped his serve, only to reply with a break of his own. Yet again it meant a tie-break which the American dominated.

Hays forced the only break point of the fourth set, could not take it and, almost inevitably, that meant another tie-break. Isner saw three match points saved, but not the fourth.

Barrere Twice Comes From a Set Down to Beat Japanese

Barrere has made the second round of his home Grand Slam for the second time in his career, although he was reliant on a wildcard even to gain entry into the tournament in the first place.

Arguably the draw was then kind to him by pitting him against the world number 115, Taro Daniel. But he had to dig deep to beat the Japanese player.

The match began with three of the opening four games going against serve, after which sequence Daniel was a break up. He consolidated his advantage to take the first set.

However, midway through the second set, Barrere broke his opponent and followed that up with another break to make things all square again.

But the Frenchman’s form temporarily deserted him in the third set, and he failed to win a single game.

Any hopes, though, that Daniel had of an early victory were ended when he dropped his serve in the fourth game of the fourth set, and soon the match was level again.

Daniel was broken again early in the fifth set and that, ultimately, proved to be decisive. He was unable to create any more break point opportunities and Barrere was able to close out the match.

Isner v Barere Prediction and Tip

Given the difference in their world rankings, it is hard to make a case for Barrere winning this match. He will need to be at his best and Isner will need to have an off day.
