John Isner v Karen Khachanov Head to Head
The two men have met three times before, with Khachanov holding a perfect three-love winning record to date. Significantly, perhaps, two of those three victories came in Masters Events last year, in Canada followed by Paris. The Russian’s other win came on the clay at Roland Garros a year earlier.
Can Isner Start Winning the Big Matches?
Isner has had a comparatively easy ride at Indian Wells so far this week.
He breezed past Australian teenager Alexei Popyrin in the second round, and then easily disposed of the number 32 seed, and clay court specialist, Guido Pella, on Tuesday.
Now things become tougher for the 33-year old American, and, as his 2019 results to date have shown, he does not always cope well with the pressure. He has reached three semi-finals this year to date – in New York, Delray Beach, and Acapulco – and, in each case, he has lost to a player that on paper and according to the world rankings, he should beat.
He will have home crowd support on Wednsday, but it remains to be seen if that is a help or a hindrance.
Khachanov, Gaining in Confidence in California
Khachanov came into Indian Wells looking for the form that helped him win three ATP titles last season, after a poor start to the year. He had to battle past Spain’s Feliciano Lopez in the second round, but, in his third round match with compatriot Andry Rublev on Tuesday he showed more of his usual flair and skill.
He will be confident going into his match with Isner, knowing that, based on their matches to date, he has the measure of the American, especially when it comes to Masters Events.
Isner v Khachanov Predictions & Tips
Isner starts the slight odds-on favourite with the bookmakers at 8/11, whilst Khachanov is priced at 11/10. Given their head-to-head record, especially in Masters tournaments, these odds are quite generous for the Russian, and he must have a good chance of reaching the quarter-finals.
Tip: Khachanov to win: 11/10 (bet365)
