ATP Newport Final Prediction: Kevin Anderson vs Jenson Brooksby

Four time ATP champion Kevin Anderson takes on Jenson Brooksby as two former NCAA tennis talents battle for the ATP Newport title on championship Sunday.

Kevin Anderson vs Jenson Brooksby

The difference in resumes among these players right now is significant, Anderson is a former top 5 player, Wimbledon and US Open finalist, and four time ATP champion, with his big serve he’s reached his first final in three years. Wins against Jack Sock and Alexander Bublik back to back were tough three setters, Brooksby will be at a career high ranking after reaching his first ATP final. Brooksby got a quality win against Jordan Thompson in the semifinals, and he’s put together a fantastic record this season largely at the Challenger Tour level where he has three titles in four finals this season. Anderson will be the favorite on paper but I do expect this grass court final to go the distance. Anderson in 3
