Top-seeded American John Isner won his fifth BB&T Atlanta Open title on Sunday, defeating compatriot Ryan Harrison in the final for the second straight year 5-7, 6-3, 6-4.
The 33-year-old won his second ATP title of the year after the Miami Open in April.
The No. 8-seeded Harrison fell to 1-3 in career finals, also losing in the Brisbane championship in January.
Harrison won the first set for the first time in the tournament, winning every other match of the week from a set down. Isner evened the match in the second set, and in the third set broke Harrison in the first game, with the match never in doubt from there.
Isner improved to 14-12 in career finals and solidifies his Top 10 standing on the ATP rankings at No. 9.
