Alex De Minaur vs John Isner
Alex De Minaur will play against John Isner in the first round in the Shanghai – Masters and we got a lot of value tennis betting tips for the tournament. The game is on Tuesday, 8 October and will not start before 4:00 UK.
Alex De Minaur world number 25 started the tournaments in Asia in Zhuhai where he won the title. The Austrian was favorite in his first three games in China and beat tennis players like John Millman who played in the final in Tokyo against Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray who shows a greater form with every match and Borna Coric who is world number 14. In the semifinal, De Minaur was an underdog against Roberto Bautista-Agut but beat him 6-2, 6-2 and in the match, for the title, he was favorite against Adrian Mannarino and after 2 sets won the tournament. Then he decided to play in Tokyo and in the 1st round everyone expected him to beat world number 99 Lloyd Harris but the Australian lost after tiebreak in the third set. That’s, on the other hand, can be good for him because he had time to rest before the Shanghai – Masters.
John Isner world number 19 also took part so far in 2 tournaments in China and both were in China. He started in Chengdu from the round of 16 but lost from Egor Gerasimov after tiebreaks in all sets. His next tournament was in Beijing and this time the American started from the 1st round with a win against Gael Monfils. In the round of 16 Isner also won this time against Daniel Evans but in the quarterfinal, his opponent was world number 7 Stefanos Tsitsipas and the Greek won the game 2:0. On hard so far the American didn’t do anything great after he lost his first game in Atlanta and in Washington, Montreal – Masters and Cincinnati Isner was beaten in his second match in the tournament. In the US Open, he reached the 3rd round but there was beaten from Marin Cilic.
Alex and John had only one game against each other in Atlanta in the round of 16 and Isner won it with 2:0. A lot has changed since that match and now De Minaur is the favorite and I think that he will win given that he is in better shape and just won a title in Asia. His loss in the 1st round in Tokyo also can be a good thing for the Austrian who has time to rest.
