Top-seeded John Isner overpowered Dudi Sela on Sunday to successfully defend his Atlanta Open title, blowing serve after serve past the 5-foot-9 Israeli player in a 6-3, 6-4 victory. Serving for the match, the 6-foot-10 Isner fell behind 30-0 before Sela sent a backhand into the net, and then watched almost helplessly as the American ripped three straight aces for the win. Ranked 12th, Isner has won two of his nine career titles in Atlanta, where he also lost to Mardy Fish in the 2010 and 2011 finals and to eventual champion Andy Roddick in the 2012 semifinals. In running his Atlanta record to 16-3, the former University of Georgia star had the crowd on his side on a 92-degree afternoon under bright sun.

He is the second qualifier to win an ATP World Tour tournament this year after Slovakia’s Martin Klizan at Munich in May. ”I was happy to win the first title, now two in a row make me even happier,” Cuevas said.
