John Isner too good for Matthew Ebden as he closes in on fifth Atlanta title
John Isner is safely into yet another Atlanta Open final after proving too much for Mathew Ebden to handle.
Isner has dominated this competition for the last decade and his 6-4 6-7 6-1 win over the Australian will give him a chance to claim his fifth title in his eighth final.
Should he achieve it, it would be the American’s 14th ATP Tour title overall.

“I’ve played both those guys before. Obviously I played Ryan here in the final last year,” Isner said.
“It was tough. Just like yesterday, I was able to get out early in the third set and that definitely took some pressure off.
“I’m very happy to be back in the final here. I need to get in the air conditioning and just rest so I could be ready for tomorrow.”
Isner will face Ryan Harrison in the final for the second straight year after he recovered from a poor start to beat British number two Cameron Norrie 2-6 6-3 6-2.
