John Isner won his ninth career title on Sunday, defending his win last year at the BB&T Atlanta Open, by defeating Israel’s Dudi Sela, 6-3, 6-4. The U.S. No. 1 player, with arguably the best serve in the men’s game today, was playing probably the best returner in the tournament. However, Isner broke Sela immediately in the first set, and only a bit later in the second, which gave him comfortable control of the match to the end.
The doubles were an all-North American affair, with Vasek Pospisil of Canada and Jack Sock of the U.S. defeating Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey, both of the U.S., 6-3, 5-7, 10-5.
