Quarter-final of an ATP 250 tournament at Newport, USA (grass). This should be an exciting match between two good players who prefer grass ground and has good career records on it overall. To have more insights on this ATP John Isner vs Matthew Ebden match please check out the preview below.
34 years old 15th ranked American hasn’t played a lot this season due to injuries but when he did, he played well. Of course, Isner has a unique play style and is hard to play against on fast grounds. The main element of his game without a doubt is his serve, like 208 cm tall he can smash one ace after the other. Even though he can play volley as well. Isner is good at the baseline and can manage to play some rallies as well. Of course, there is always a question mark on his physical state as he gets injured a lot. However, if he manages to avoid some injuries here Isner would definitely be a favorite to win the title.
John also plays well against Ebden as he is leading the H2H by 3 victories and if nothing special happens there would be no surprise to see him entering the semi-final.
31 years old Australian is having one of the worst seasons of his career. He’s not only dropped out of Top100 not that long ago but hasn’t even got further than a quarter-final at any of the tournaments he’s played at this season. Anyway, here at Newport Ebden is playing better than he used to before. It’s hard to tell if he’s finally back in form or was it just due to opponents struggles, but he’s comfortably defeated both Schnur and Kudla by more than 4 games. Matthew is a good all-around player and different style player compared to Isner. However, it feels like American is not a good opponent for Ebden.
Australian has lost both of the matches they played on grass in straight sets. The match should not be one-sided, but in order to win tomorrow, Ebden will have to show something we haven’t seen from him so far this season.
