THE PREDICTION

Steve Johnson came through a tough five-set slog against John Isner in the first round and he will have to recover quickly for this clash with Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis. They have met just once before back in 2015 when Berankis won in straight sets but Johnson will be motivated to avenge that here. Neither player possesses much of a record at the US Open with Johnson the only one to have reached the third round once before. Based on their opening performances, Johnson has to be favoured to edge this one if he can reproduce the level of play that saw him beat Isner last time out. It could go four or five sets but Johnson is favoured here.
