The Cincinnati Open quarterfinal matchup between John Isner and fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas will take place on Friday. Read below for Stefanos Tsitsipas vs John Isner Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview, Betting Tips and Live Stream.
Despite enjoying a respectable year, Tsitsipas has been prevented from reaching greater heights by his inconsistencies. The Greek, who was ranked No. 4 in the world when the year began, is now at No. 7.
The 24-year-old started the year by making it to the Australian Open quarterfinals, but his longtime adversary Daniil Medvedev defeated him in four sets. He finished second at the ATP Rotterdam and the Italian Open, but he advanced to win the crowns at the Monte-Carlo Masters and the Mallorca Open by defeating Spaniards Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and Roberto Bautista Agut, respectively, by scores of 6-3, 7-6 (3) and 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (2).
Isner hasn’t won a championship yet this year, although he has advanced to the ATP Houston final, the Dallas Open semifinals, and the Hall of Fame Open final. Additionally, he advanced to the Atlanta Open quarterfinals.
In each of his interactions in Cincinnati, the American has been on the verge of failure. In the first round, he defeated Benjamin Bonzi 7-6 (11), 3-6, 7-6 (4) before playing Hubert Hurkacz, with whom he played doubles, who was defeated 7-6 (5), 6-7 (5), 6-2. Sebastian Korda, a fellow countryman, was the 37-year-most old’s recent obstacle. He was defeated 7-6 (3), 1-6, 7-6. (4).

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs John Isner head to head record
Isner is down 4-2 to Tsitsipas in their previous meetings. In each of their most recent meetings, which took place at the 2021 French Open, 2021 Mexican Open, 2020 Cincinnati Open, and 2019 Beijing Open, the former World No. 3 prevailed over the seasoned competitor.
The youngster has actually lost to the American at the 2017 Shanghai Masters and 2018 Wimbledon.
Stefanos Tsitsipas vs John Isner Predictions
While Tsitsipas has advanced to the semifinals in his last two appearances in 2020 and 2021, Isner is the 2013 finalist and the 2017 semifinalist at Cincinnati.
The favourite to win the contest will be Tsitsipas. He’ll be aiming for a hat trick of semifinal appearances here. He can play at the baseline as well as the net and has excellent court coverage. Both the Greek’s one-handed backhand and forehand produce topspin.
Although the 24-year-old can serve reasonably well, he cannot compete with his American opponent in this regard. Isner will presumably get unearned points thanks to his vicious serve. The 37-year-old, on the other hand, might not be able to handle Tsitsipas’ challenging returns, which many believe will be his downfall this time.
Prediction: Tsitsipas will triumph in straight sets.
