• Isner, Anderson in Rome opener on Sunday

    5/12/13 6:02 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Isner, Anderson in Rome opener on Sunday American John Isner and Kevin Anderson of South Africa will take the court as the first day of play gets underway in Rome.

    John Isner vs. Denis Istomin

    This is going to be a tricky matchup for John Isner. The American doesn't move well enough to be considered a real threat to make noise on clay and a docile straight-sets loss to Pablo Andujar ended his run in Madrid in the second round.

    Denis Istomin was also defeated in the second round in Madrid, but he lost to world No. 4 David Ferrer.

    Prediction - Isner is back to his least favorite surface--slow clay. Istomin in 2.

    Kevin Anderson vs. Jurgen Melzer

    This could be a real battle. Veteran Jurgen Melzer was dispatched in the first round in Madrid by Kei Nishikori. But he had a couple of good tournaments prior to the early loss last week, including a quarterfinal at the Miami Masters.

    Kevin Anderson had a good tournament in Madrid. He lost in the third round to Tomas Berdych, but not before he defeated Juan Monaco. Anderson is having the best year of his career, amassing an 18-7 record for 2013.

    Prediction - Even though Anderson is not a typical clay-courter, the South African has been playing great tennis. Anderson in 3.
