The 2009 US Open champion - Juan Martin Del Potro – continues his quest for a fifth appearance at the season-ending tournament in London. Regardless of this Friday’s outcome, Del Potro already secured his return to the top 10 for the first time since August 2014. On the other hand, the 29-year-old is going through a great moment in his career with a sensational 83.33% winning record since the US Open.
Playing in Paris brings the best out of John Isner. After a disappointing defeat against Andy Murray at the 2016 Rolex Paris Master Final, the 32-year-old is trying to go a step further on this year’s edition and become the first American to win this event since Andre Agassi in 1999. Known as one of the best servers in tennis history, the high bouncing conditions in Paris are perfect for Isner’s powerful kick serve. Taking a look now at John’s numbers on this tournament, the world No.14 fired an impressive average of 1.54 aces per service game on his previous two matches in Paris Bercy.
This will be the 9th career meeting between these two players with Del Potro leading on the h2h by 6 – 2.
As the h2h suggests, Del Potro is far from an easy match-up for the American. Nevertheless, it won’t be easy for the Argentinean to break Isner’s serve on these high bouncing conditions in Paris Bercy. For that reason, it’s impossible to find any value on Del Potro’s tennis betting odds to win this match at -223 at Pinnacle.
