TennisSection previews the 2022 ATP Cup as John Isner faces Jan-Lennard Struff on Tuesday January 4th, 2022 (January 3rd, 7:00pm EST).
The USA and Germany will do battle here in Sydney at the 2022 ATP Cup. John Isner and Jan-Lennard Struff will meet in what is sure to be a very close and exciting encounter. These two teams have always been near the top when it comes to team tennis events and both players will be hoping to continue their 2022 season preparations with a good result here. Who will get the win for their country here at the 2022 ATP Cup?
John Isner is a highly seasoned veteran of the ATP Tour and even though he is no quite the force he once was, he is still ranked a respectable #24 in the world. The American is known for his booming serve, which remains a huge weapon. After a solid 2021 season he will be looking forward to yet another productive season, and will want to get some good match practice in here at the 2022 ATP Cup. His next opponent will be Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff, also a veteran. Isner is the favorite here given his experience and major weapon in his serve, but will have to be at his best to overcome the dangerous German.
Jan-Lennard Struff is ranked at #51 in the world, a disappointing ranking for a player of his caliber. He had a very disappointing 2021 season with a 26-30 win/loss record, and will be highly motivated to be much improved this year. The German has a very explosive game, and is strong in all areas, but tends to make numerous unforced errors at times. He will not be afforded that luxury here against his opponent John Isner, who is likely to hold serve very easily. If Struff is at his best then he is very capable of causing the upset, however we have not seen his best very often lately. He is the big underdog here at the 2022 ATP Cup and it will take a massive effort to avoid a loss.
This will be the fourth meeting between the two players on the ATP Tour, with John Isner dominating the head to head series 4-0. Their matches have always been extremely close however, and I am expecting yet another tight battle here at the 2022 ATP Cup. John Isner is the obvious favorite, and should be able to control the match with his serve. He also is much more composed than his opponent Jan-Lennard Struff who can struggle with consistency at times, and his confidence is also likely to be low after a poor run of form. I am going with Isner here to get the win, and all signs are pointing in that direction. Back the American to overcome Struff here, earning a point for the USA here in Sydney.
