US Open Day 2 Predictions Including John Isner vs Federico Delbonis

John Isner DraftKings All American Team Cup

John Isner and Brandon Nakashima are two of the names in action on day 2 of the US Open. We have predictions for every day 2 match in New York including Andrey Rublev and Cameron Norrie’s first round matches.

John Isner vs Federico Delbonis

Damian Kust: Federico Delbonis sort of saved his season by qualifying, but getting a round in the main draw will need to be tough. Probably needs to hold his serve and pray he gets a break point somewhere or edges John Isner in the tie-breaks. Isner in 3

David Gertler: Isner has a massive first serve and aggressive ground game. While Delbonis did well to qualify, his forehand is erratic and sits up in the court. Isner should be able to overpower the Argentine throughout this match and win this match in a straightforward fashion. Isner in 3

Adrian Mannarino vs Gijs Brouwer

Damian: Will Gijs Brouwer be troubled by Adrian Mannarino’s tricky spins? Probably not as much as most players and his lefty serve can do damage. The Frenchman will be coming in with a lot of confidence after taking the title at Winston-Salem though. Mannarino in 4

David: Mannarino just won Winston-Salem with his flat, awkward lefty game. But, an underrated aspect of Mannarino’s game is consistency and ability to keep points alive. Brouwer has a big lefty serve and did well to qualify, but his rally tolerance isn’t near Mannarino’s, which will be the difference in this match. Mannarino in 4

Brandon Nakashima vs Pavel Kotov

Damian: Pavel Kotov impressed in the qualifying draw, but he didn’t land in a great spot in the main event. Brandon Nakashima could be too strong, but the Russian playing like that is probably good enough to snatch a set. Nakashima in 4

David: Nakashima is on a three-match losing streak, but he still has a huge serve and a powerful backhand that control the baseline. Kotov has a nice serve and can control the baseline with his forehand, but Nakashima should be able to dominate in the backhand-to-backhand exchanges. And Kotov’s forehand isn’t quite good enough to prevent Nakashima from keying in on his backhand wing. Nakashima in 4

Pedro Martinez vs Christopher Eubanks

Damian: Pedro Martinez is a very winnable draw for Christopher Eubanks. Now whether he actually does it will largely depend on how effective that serve and forehand will be. Confidence from the qualifying should help. Eubanks in 5

David: Martinez is a solid player with no huge weaknesses, but he is more comfortable on clay and doesn’t have any big weapons. Eubanks has a huge first serve, but his backhand is a liability. Ultimately, on a hard court with the crowd behind him, Eubanks should be able to get enough free points and his forehand is strong enough where an upset will be brewing. Eubanks in 5
