Prediction: Vasek Pospisil Beats John Isner in Montreal

Pospisil beats Isner prediction

With Eugenie Bouchard and Milos Raonic being bounced from the Rogers Cup, Vasek Pospisil is now Canada’s last hope for a Canuck to win. Pospisil looked superb in his first Rogers Cup match, and he is a slight underdog against John Isner on Wednesday, Aug 12 in Montreal. Read our breakdown of the match and why we think Pospisil beats Isner.

British Columbia’s Vasek Pospisil has been experiencing the best run of his young career, and reached a rank of #32 at the peak. Now, Pospisil has a chance to emerge as Canada’s brightest tennis star when he plays in front of the home fans in Montreal against America’s John Isner, who is ranked #12 in the world.

Pospisil has had good success against Isner in his career going 3-2 lifetime, including a win on Canadian soil in this same tournament back in 2013. Vasek was a much larger underdog then, as online sportsbooks have respected the recent run by Pospisil, and now see him as (+100) against Isner.

This match will also be a measure of revenge for Pospisil, who lost to Isner earlier this month in Washington, where the American was the crowd favourite. This time, Vasek will have the crowd behind him, which tends to elevate his level of play, instead of causing him to crumble under the pressure.

Both of these men have been playing a lot of tennis, and Pospisil made it a point to rest after his loss to Isner in Washington on August 7th. It looked like the rest paid off, because Pospisil came out and looked dominant in his first round Rogers Cup match against Yen-Hsun Lu.

Isner, on the other hand, has played in a series of grueling 3-set matches on his way to the Washington final with no breaks. Pospisil will be the fresher of the two and have a special motivation to win in Canada, while Isner won’t be overexerting himself before the US Open.

Prediction: Vasek Pospisil (+100)
