  • Isner defends Newport crown with win over Hewitt

    7/16/12 12:41 AM | Cheryl Murray
    John Isner is once again the Newport champion. The American defeated veteran Lleyton Hewitt for his first title of the year.

    A good serving day aided John Isner in defending his Newport title. The world No. 11 struck 16 aces and more importantly put in 71 percent of his first serves in the straight-set victory.

    Isner was not as dominant in the opening set. He only faced one break point, but he was relatively ineffective on Hewitt's serve also. The Aussie, whose ranking sits at No. 233 after surgeries and injuries had him sidelined for much of the last year, faced one break point, which he also fought off.

    Isner finished off the match with a trio of aces as he served out the second set at 5-4. The American now heads for his home tournament in Atlanta.

Good to see John successfully defending Newport. I think he has a good chance of winning Atlanta also, with the Bulldogs backing him. I suppose returning to his home away from home, would give him the oomf he needs to win Atlanta, coz he could be running on a half empty tank going into Atlanta. would be nice to see an all-American final, so here's hoping .......
