Isner reigns supreme in Atlanta

John Isner powered his way through to the BB&T Atlanta Open title with a straight sets win over Marcos Baghdatis in Sunday's final.

The lanky American needed just 60 minutes to defeat the world number 47 on the hard courts of Atlanta, prevailing 6-3, 6-3.

As expected, Isner's serve dominated proceedings, with the top seed firing 13 aces and never providing break point opportunity on his own serve.

The defending champion took advantage of his first and only break point in the opening set to take a 3-1 lead, never looking back as he served out the set.

The Cypriot saved a break point in the third game of the second set, but Isner would break him in the fifth game and consolidate for a 4-2 advantage. A final break in the ninth game would be enough for the 30-year-old to claim his eleventh ATP title.

The 6 foot 10 player certainly seems to enjoy Atlanta, as this is his third title in row in the Georgia state capital. Isner picks up a cool $106 565 and 250 ATP World Tour points for his efforts.
