TennisSection previews the 2021 Laver Cup as Stefanos Tsitsipas takes on John Isner on Day 3 on Sunday, September 26th, 2021.
Will John Isner be able to get a win to console himself after that very tight loss in his first match here? Will Stefanos Tsitsipas cruise through another opponents here at the 2021 Laver Cup? Both players can win this match if they are at their best, but only one will get 3 points for their team. Who will it be?
John Isner will be both happy and disappointed with his only match here at the 2021 Laver Cup, where he lost to Alexander Zverev in 3 tight sets. John showed himself that he can compete with top 10 players who are in great form, but he knows that his return game is quite weak when his serve is not firing. John Isner will want to give Team World and the US crowd something to cheer about although they were brutally destroyed by now I believe. Can the huge serving American get a win against a top 10 opponent in Stefanos Tsitsipas?
Stefanos Tsitsipas will want to continue playing with the same form and momentum he found against Nick Kyrgios in his only match here, as he knows that getting good wins under his belt here will not only benefit Team Europe (if they have not already won by now), but it will also benefit his form as he enters the rest of the season in the next few tournaments. Stefanos Tsitsipas is great in these indoor hard court conditions as he likes to hit flat, and I expect for him to want to show everyone his amazing tennis against John Isner in his last day here at the 2021 Laver Cup.
Stefanos Tsitsipas and John Isner have met 6 times before, with Stefanos Tsitsipas leading the head to head 4-2. They met 2 times this year, once on clay and once on hard court, where Tsitsipas won both quite easily. Although John Isner is a big server, these courts are slower than he would like, meaning that Tsitsipas will have more time to return, and he will be able to get the ball in much more to wear down the American. I expect a tight match at moments just because John Isner will want to go out swinging for the fences, but Tsitsipas will still get the job done here at the 2021 Laver Cup.
