Top-seeded Isner wins 2nd straight Atlanta title

ATLANTA (AP) -- Top-seeded John Isner overpowered Dudi Sela on Sunday to successfully defend his Atlanta Open title, blowing serve after serve past the 1.75-meter Israeli player in a 6-3, 6-4 victory.

Serving for the match, the 2.08-meter Isner fell behind 30-0 before Sela sent a backhand into the net, and then watched almost helplessly as the American ripped three straight aces for the win. Isner finished with 15 aces to Sela's two.

Ranked 12th, Isner has won two of his nine career titles in Atlanta, where he also lost to Mardy Fish in the 2010 and 2011 finals and to eventual champion Andy Roddick in the 2012 semifinals.
