At long last, the semifinals in Wimbledon are upon us. In the early match on Friday, there is a match between two elite servers on the men’s tour. This match will be between the the number eight ranked Kevin Anderson and the number nine ranked John Isner. Both of these players have faced each other 11 times in the past with Isner winning eight of these matches. However, with a spot in the Wimbledon finals at stake, anything can happen.
John Isner is the last American male left in the tournament. However, he is much more than that. At the end of his career, he will be in the discussion for the greatest server to ever live. For example, in his second round match against Ruben Bemelmans, he hit an astounding 65 aces with only three double faults. His serve has propelled him to a top-ten ranking and now his serve might lead him to a Wimbledon final. Isner’s serve has also lead to his head-to-head dominance against Anderson due to Anderson’s inability to break him. Expect Isner to be on top of his serving game this Friday with a spot in the final at stake.
As for my prediction, I have to side with Anderson. Although Isner is currently in peak form, he got a little bit lucky last round when his opponent suffered a leg injury which hindered his mobility for the rest of the match. Anderson could very well be tired from his match against Federer but if he was able to come back from two sets down against the greatest of all-time, he should be able to get over the hump and defeat Isner this Friday.
