American John Isner won his third straight BB&T Atlanta Open on Sunday, defeating Marcos Baghdatis 6-3, 6-3.
In addition to three straight titles it was the fifth Atlanta final reached in the last six years for the American.

Isner is the eighth player to win three titles in a row on the ATP World Tour, joining Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, Milos Raonic, Kei Nishikori and Lleyton Hewitt.

The top seed and world No. 19 dropped 13 aces and never faced a break point against Baghdatis.

“I felt great out there, I kept getting stronger and stronger,” said the 30-year-old Isner. “I just needed to keep trying to play aggressive and go for my shots. I felt like I did that out there, for the most part.”
