John Isner vs Cristian Garin: Preview
After a string of early exits in his previous tournaments, 2013 champion, John Isner has found his rhythm in Houston. The American had to dig deep and save a match point en route to his win against Steve Johnson in the second round. He then won another three-setter against Frances Tiafoe in the quarter-finals. The fourth seed won 79% of his first serves and blasted 16 aces past his compatriot to win 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.
Cristian Garin began his title defense by snapping a 5 match losing streak and has now notched up a hat-trick of wins. The Chilean had to go the distance in all his matches so far, and the most emphatic of his wins came in the quarter-finals when he defeated reigning Indian Wells champion, Taylor Fritz 6-2, 6(5)-7, 6-3 to extend his unbeaten streak in Houston to 8 matches.
John Isner vs Cristian Garin: Head-to-Head
This will be the fourth meeting of the duo. Their head-to-head currently stands at 2-1 in favor of the Chilean. Their last match-up was at the 2021 Canadian Open, which Isner won 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
John Isner vs Cristian Garin: Prediction
Isner’s serve will be the key in this clash. In the two matches, he played the big-serving American fired an astonishing 54 aces, and would be looking to capitalize on it during his match against Garin. But the Chilean is a clay-court specialist and has a solid defensive game which would pose a threat to Isner’s serve and pacy forehands. Neither of them is the outright favorite given their poor run of form so far, but if Garin can keep Isner’s serve at bay he holds a slight lead and can inch closer to defending his title.
Prediction: Cristian Garin to win in three sets
