John Isner vs Holger Rune prediction

Isner at the 2022 ATP Cup: Day 2
Isner at the 2022 ATP Cup: Day 2

Isner will be the favorite heading into this one, but Rune is more than capable of challenging the big American.

Isner has arguably the best serve in tennis. In his previous match, he served 19 aces, zero double faults, and won 88% of the points on his first serve. He will hope to post similar numbers against Rune.

Rune is in the midst of a breakout season. His aggressive style and powerful groundstrokes are well-suited to the quick surfaces at the US Open. The young Dane will have to be at his best on the return of serve and with his passing shots if he is to challenge Isner on Thursday.

However, the way Isner is serving at the moment, taking three sets off him will be a mammoth task.

Pick: Isner to win in four sets
