Baghdatis beats fifth-seeded Tiafoe in Atlanta Open

John Isner continued his stranglehold on the Atlanta Open by winning back-to-back titles at the expense of Ryan Harrison. "It was a weird match".

He has 14 ATP Tour titles, breaking through for his first ATP Masters 1000 success at the Miami Open in April.

"I've been on the other end where you have four or five chances to put your stamp on the match and you don't get it, and I just had one chance, and played a good point, and was able to win the second set, and had one chance in the third and got up early".

Argentinian Mayer, who also won the tournament in 2014, was unable to build on his momentum, however, and, after the pair shared the opening 10 games of the decider, world number 81 Basilashvili broke again before successfully serving for the championship.

John Isner won the BB&T Atlanta Open for the fifth time in six years Sunday, beating fellow American Ryan Harrison in the final for the second straight year.

"It's been a tough year", Baghdatis said.

The American was pushed to three sets by German sixth seed Mischa Zverev before prevailing 7-5 4-6 6-1. "We are good friends and it'll be a rematch of past year, so it'll be cool".

The 22-year-old Italian, who had never reached a tour-level quarter-final before this week, triumphed 7-6 (11/9) 6-4.

"I was struggling a little bit", Isner said.

At the Swiss Open in Gstaad, Feliciano Lopez lost 6-4 6-3 to Matteo Berrettini and Jurgen Zopp beat Facundo Bagnis 3-6 6-4 6-3.

"To his credit, he [Ebden] played much better than me that day in Australia". It helps a lot. He will face the victor of Friday night's match between Brit Cameron Norrie and second-seeded Australian Nick Kyrgios in the other semifinal.

"Now, I'm playing in my backyard and he beat me in his backyard. But we'll see what happens".
