TennisSection previews the Houston Open 2022 as John Isner takes on Steve Johnson in the Round of 16 on Thursday, April 7th, 2022.
Will John Isner get the win? Will Steve Johnson pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a tight American rivalry coming together for an 11th time. Who will triumph and move on to the quarterfinals at the Houston Open 2022?
John Isner is looking good to take this one and progress further in his unlikely path on the clay. He does know how to play on the clay, playing that historic match against Nadal in the first round of the 2011 French Open. I do expect him to pull this one out, but anything can happen, especially with the style of Isner. Johnson knows how to beat Isner, and I might favor him, but Isner leads their head to head on clay 2-1 and is in much better form at the Houston Open 2022.
Steve Johnson got a good win to set this one up with his good friend in John Isner. He does surprisingly lead the head to head, possessing a solid serve himself and a good baseline game to trip up someone of the likes of Isner. This match could go either way, and I expect it to be close. However, Johnson hasn’t had good results for a while now, and Isner is still playing pretty well, let’s see what happens at the Houston Open 2022.
John Isner and Steve Johnson have met 10 times before, with Steve Johnson leading the head to head 6-4. Their head to head is a long and intricate one spanning back 8 years. The main takeaways for this one though lie in their head to head on clay, which Isner leads. As well as their current forms. Johnson did best Isner at this very tournament in 2018, but Isner is looking sharper as the two will clash for a place in the quarterfinals of the Houston Open 2022.
