John Isner vs Philipp Kohlschreiber match preview

In the third round of the US Open, John Isner is going to play against the German player Philipp Kohlschreiber (ATP ranking #25), and it will be the fifth match in their head-to-head statistics. Kohlschreiber won the only match, however it happened exactly last year at the American Grand Slam (the score was 3-2). Since then, it seems to us that John took that loss close to his heart and his game performance got worse. But, it can't take forever, and all Isner's fans have seen John's come back recently, when he not only gained a new Champion title in Atlanta, but also beat several top-10 players in a row, including #1 Djokovic.
Speaking about Philipp, his experience on hard is wide, but at the same time, as we know, he is not very consistent and doesn't show such a great concentration in the important moments as John. Moreover, he doesn't like to play against players with a great serve. And the latest match against Roger-Vasselin hasn't shown Kohlschreiber being in perfect form.
To summarize, we believe John Isner will try to step over his mental fears which could appear the last time he played vs Kohlschreiber, and prove he is able to defeat the German without problems.
