“It was a weird match. The balls were bouncing everywhere, it was tough to control. I was happy to get through in three sets.”
Isner will face Matthew Ebden for a place in the final after the Australian defeated Marcos Baghdatis 6-3 6-2.
The other semi-final will see Ryan Harrison take on Cameron Norrie after he advanced past an injured Nick Kygrios.
The Australian lost the first set and was trailing 0-3 int the second when he decuided he could not continue due to a hip injury, much to the disdain of the Atlanta crowd.
