Isner sets up lofty final

July 28, 2013 11:30:49 UK

John Isner is looking forward to playing Kevin Anderson in the final of the Atlanta Open after edging to a thrilling semi-final victory against Lleyton Hewitt.

The American moved into his third Atlanta Open final in four years - he was beaten by Mardy Fish in both 2010 and 2011 - with a nail-biting 6-4 4-6 7-6 victory over former Wimbledon champion Hewitt.

We've been playing each other for many years now and each time it's been a close match.

Meanwhile, South African Kevin Anderson fired down 14 aces on his way to beating Ryan Harrison 6-3 7-6 to set up what will be the tallest final in ATP World Tour history.

"I thought I played very well," Isner said after gaining revenge over Hewitt, who beat him in the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships earlier this month.

"It's a case where I'm getting more comfortable, now that it's my third match out there. I was able to go for my shots more in this match than I was in my previous matches."

Sunday's final will be Isner's 14th of his career on the ATP World Tour and he can be backed at 2.75 to win the match in straight sets while Anderson is available at 4.50 to come out on top in three sets.

"We've been playing each other for many years now and each time it's been a close match," said Anderson of his match against Isner.

"I'll have to go out there and take care of my service games and try to create chances. I'll need to be patient and go into tie-breaks if necessary."

Don't forget, all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on mobile or tablet with bet365 On The Move.
