John Isner just slipped past Spaniard Pablo Andujar in his first match at the Rogers Cup.
It wasn't completely easy sailing for American John Isner in this second-round 7-6(5), 7-5 win over clay-courter Pablo Andujar.
Isner served up 17 aces in the two-set match, but even with his massive first serve clicking pretty well, the American was still broken in the second set.
The first set progressed without even a chance for either man to break serve. Isner, who is not known for his return game, was forced to take the first set in a tiebreaker, in which he just edged Andujar with a single mini-break lead.
The second set was sloppier from both men with a service break apiece. They traded service breaks heading into the tail-end of the set. But with the set seemingly destined for another tiebreaker, Isner secured a second service break to secure the straight-set victory.
Isner awaits the winner of Italy's Fabio Fognini or Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany in the third round.
