Hard to believe that John Isner is thirty years old. Seemed just yesterday he was in that multi day record breaking ordeal at Wimbledon. While this year could be considered a large disappointment, his victory in Atlanta translates to him at least winning what he should. How did he progress through the tourney? Did he beat anyone of note? Most importantly, can we profit off of him now that he has proclaimed that the American Hard Court season is exactly what he needed. Let us see what America’s Bookie has to say about this.

History has shown us that hard courts on his home turf he excels at. He collected the scalps of Milos and Kei at the Miami Masters. Now he dipatched Baghdatis in the finals of Atlanta 6-3, 6-3. Yes he was supposed to do this being the number one seed but he was so brutal coming into it. He ground his way through every round. Stepnaek in the second round was your typical 7-6, 7-6 affair. Credit from the Isner camp is going towards a change in coaching for this new tick upward.
A former pro player but not a legend has taken the helm of the career of Isner. This has translated to him using more aggression in regards to his booming serve. He has cited confidence issues in the past which makes Atlanta even more important for him. Now he gets the DC event where Andy Murry and Kei are at. If he makes it through the early rounds, Murray could be vulnerable from the Isner power game.
For the Citi Open, Isner is listed as the fourth favorite in the future to win this. While I think he has a better chance than Cillic, does the +1400 on John have a reasonable chance of paying off. After all, Andy is only +150 to win with Kei tallying +400. Time to take a small stab at Isner +1400 to win the Citi Open. Good fortune to us and we will see you next time here at APEX Tennis Betting.
