Djokovic N. (Srb) vs. Isner J. (Usa) – Score prediction (10.10.2019)

Overview.

John Isner has won only two matches against Novak Djokovic from the possible eleven, and both of those wins came in Masters 1000 events at Indian Wells 2012 and Cincinnati 2013. Novak Djokovic deservedly starts as the overwhelming favorite, but the fast conditions in Shanghai give John Isner an outside chance of causing an upset.

Novak Djokovic kickstarted his title-defense campaign in Shanghai Masters with an impressive straight-set win over Denis Shapovalov on Wednesday. The Serbian was rock-solid on his serve and broke the Canadian’s serve thrice in two sets, 6-3 6-3. It was world #1 Novak Djokovic’s 50th win of the season at all levels, and he is only four wins short of his 2018 tally (54/13). “It’s nice to be back. And also, it feels very good to play as well as I did today. I knew that Denis is a very dangerous player. If he has time, if he’s feeling the ball well, it can be a tough match,” said Djokovic after the win. Novak Djokovic, who retired from his round of 16 match in the US Open, made a swift return to action in Tokyo last week, where he lifted his fourth title of the 2019 season, without dropping a set.

Despite the recent injury setback, the reigning Wimbledon and Australian Open champion will be quite confident at the moment as he gained a lot of momentum in Tokyo last week and has got a terrific record in Shanghai Masters, having lifted this title four times and reached at least the semifinal during all his previous eight visits. “Because of the history that I had in this tournament and in general in the Asian Swing and lots of success and lots of matches won in my career, I actually feel less pressure because I’m more confident that I can perform at my best,” the Serbian #1 speaking about his record in Shanghai as well as in the Asian swing.

John Isner registered a win without needing a tiebreaker for the first time since the US Open by defeating Lucas Pouille 7-5 6-3 in the second round of Shanghai Masters on Wednesday. Earlier in this campaign, he knocked out the reigning ATP Zhuhai champion Alex de Minaur in straight sets, 7-6 6-4. In his previous eight appearances in Shanghai Masters, the big-serving American has reached the round of 16 four times but couldn’t progress further even once — recently lost to the Serbian Viktor Troicki in 2017.
