Isner saves match points to seize Atlanta crown

John Isner pipped South African Kevin Anderson in a closely contested three set match (all tiebreaks) to win the battle of the big serving giants in Atlanta, Sunday.

The match extended to just under three hours and proved to be a serving exhibition, the two players hitting 24 (Isner) and 21 aces (Anderson) respectively. Neither player suffered a break of serve in the entire match, although Anderson had the most break point opportunities – failing to take advantage of 11 chances, 7 of which came in the final set.

Isner saved two championship points and served out the tiebreak to win his seventh ATP Tour title.
