Filip Krajinovic (q) vs. John Isner (9)

The 2016 Rolex Paris Masters runner-up – John Isner – continues his quest for a first ever Masters 1000 title. As we predicted in our semifinals analysis, Juan Martin Del Potro couldn’t find the answer to John’s powerful serve. In addition to his impressive average of 0.94 aces per service game, the 6’10’’ American didn’t allow a single break point opportunity to his opponent on the previous round. On the other hand, the 32-year-old can book a spot at the ATP World Tour Finals in London by winning the title in Paris.

Filip Krajinovic’s dream run continues at the Rolex Paris Masters. Regardless of this Saturday’s outcome, the 25-year-old already secured his career-high ranking next week with an unprecedented appearance on the top 50. Despite his disappointing 52.45% career record on Indoor Hard Court before this tournament, the slow court conditions in Paris Bercy are perfect for Krajinovic’s game style. Taking a look now at Filip’s campaign on this event, the Serbian earned a free pass into the Paris semifinals after Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal due to a knee injury.

The sportsbooks expect a straightforward win from Isner with the 2016 runner-up available at -250 at 5Dimes to book a place in the final for the second consecutive year. Even though we agree with John’s favoritism, it’s impossible to find any value on his current tennis betting odds. On the other hand, Krajinovic is going through the best moment in his career with an outstanding 77.78% winning record in 2017. Having said that, our suggestion is for you to add the Over to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this contest.
