Reilly Opelka vs John Isner preview
Third seed Reilly Opelka will face fourth seed John Isner in the last of the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships on Sunday. Opelka has had a superb season to date. He arrived at the third round of the Australian Open prior to losing to Denis Shapovalov. He then, at that point, won the Dallas Open, beating Jenson Brooksby in the last. Opelka likewise arrived at the last of the Delray Beach Open prior to losing to Cameron Norrie.
The World No. 18 proceeded with his great structure by arriving at the last 16 of the Indian Wells Masters yet lost to possible second place Rafael Nadal. He made a beeline for Miami after that yet resigned halfway through his second-round match against Francisco Cerundolo.
Opelka entered the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships as the third seed and endure a panic right off the bat from Mitchell Krueger. He then, at that point, beat Gijs Brouwer to arrive at the elimination rounds, where he beat Nick Kyrgios 6-3, 7-5 to arrive at his third last of the time.
Another week, another meltdown at an umpire for Nick Kyrgios, getting a point penalty for audible obscenity down break point at 5-5 in the Houston semifinals.
Kyrgios was still seething over what he thought was a missed call on an earlier point.
Opelka served it out, 6-3, 7-5.

Isner had a disappointing Australian summer before reaching the semifinals of the Dallas Open. He then made the last 16 of the Mexican Open as well as the Indian Wells Masters. The American was knocked out in the second round of the Miami Masters by Hugo Gaston. However, he won the men’s doubles competition partnering Hubert Hurkacz.
Isner entered the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships as the fourth seed and started by surviving a scare against compatriot Steve Johnson. He then fought off Frances Tiafoe to reach the semifinals. He fought back from a set down to beat reigning champion Cristian Garin to reach his first singles final of the season.

Reilly Opelka vs John Isner prediction
Opelka will head into the final as the favorite but the vastly experienced Isner should not be written off.
Both players have looked in good touch in Houston and the match promises to be a closely-contested one. Opelka and Isner are among the best servers on tour, with the latter having served a whopping 71 aces in the tournament.
Both players will look to make the most of their service games and like in Dallas earlier in the year, we could see a tie-break or two.
The match promises to be tightly contested, but considering Opelka’s past record against Isner and his superior all-round game, he should be able to get the better of his compatriot once again.
