Isner Takes BB&T Atlanta Open


John Isner defeated Ryan Harrison 7-6 (6), 7-6 (7) in the All-American final of the BB&T Atlanta Open, earning his fourth singles title in Atlanta and second ATP World Tour singles title in two weeks. It was the battle of the serves, with Isner, the No. 2 seed securing the close, nail-biter against the gunslinger and No. 4, Harrison.


Australian Open Day 3: Match of the Day

John Isner vs. David Nalbandian

This should be quite a fight on Margaret Court Arena Wednesday afternoon.

Isner is seeded 16th and is looking to keep moving up near the top-10.  Nalbandian has seen his ranking slide all the way down to No. 87.

The positives for Nalbandain include he is 2-0 in his career against the big American and it is early in the year, so The Argentine is relatively fresh.  One of his wins against Inser was back in 2010 when Isner was forced to retire in the first set during the Cincinnati event.

Isner will need to serve big and try and keep the points short.  If he does he should win in 4 sets.

A good crop of Americans, no Roddick.  Atlanta tennis fans will want to see Canadian newcomer Milos Raonic.  No Donald Young getting direct entry.  With challenger points coming off his ranking, he is now #124 on the computer.  Ryan Harrison is now ahead of Young at #122.

Qualifying spots and wildcards to be determined.
