Kevin Anderson (orange T-shirt) was about to win his third title on the ATP Tour. In the final of the tournament in Atlanta on Sunday, the South African bowed by two sets to one against the American John Isner in a duel of sluggers and giants (2.06 m for Isner and 2.01 m for Anderson).
During this tight final, Anderson won the first set 7/6 and leads the second 6-5 but fails to conclude. Isner seeded No. 1 comes back and wins the tiebreak 7-2. The third set will be played just as the previous, but the American made the difference again in the tiebreak and wins after three hours of game 6/7 [3-7], 7/6 [7-2 ], 7/6 [7-2].
