亚特兰大(AP) – 头号种子卫冕冠军约翰·伊斯内尔先进的亚特兰大公开赛决赛在赛会的5年的历史了第四次,上周六击败练习伙伴杰克·索克7-5,6-4。

作为第12届排名伊斯内尔寻求在周日他的职业生涯第九题,D·塞拉将尝试赢得他的第一次。 The 94th-ranked Israeli player beat Germany’s Ben Becker 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in a night match.

伊斯内​​尔救了他最好的每组结束后在事件提高到15-3。 The former University of Georgia star broke Sock’s service twice – each time to capture a set.

“”我在这里提出了四项决赛。 Winston-Salem is my hometown. This feels like my hometown because I went to school here,” Isner said. ”I feel like it’s my time of year to play well, and start picking up the pace a little bit.”

第一组的最后一场比赛前,伊斯内尔对袜子的前五个发球局中只赢了两分。

然后,在游戏,历时14分钟,平分九次达到,伊斯内尔赢得了13分,幸存比赛六分,并采取了一系列袜子时发出的反手宽。 That was Sock’s third backhand of the set. All three were unforced errors.

“”我没有把他的任何压力,但我告诉自己,可能工作到我的青睐(杀青他的能量)“”伊斯内尔说。 ”If I could put a little pressure on him, maybe he could crack a little bit and . . . second set, same thing.”

在第二盘4-5服,袜子 – 谁在三个星期前与加拿大华塞克·波斯比希尔联手赢得温布尔登女双冠军 – 双故障两次。

当袜子送他最后正手成网,伊斯内尔通过移动到亚特兰大最终又一次。 He lost in there in 2010 and 2011 to Mardy Fish, and fell in the 2012 semifinals to eventual champion Andy Roddick.

随着伊斯内尔开始计时袜子的第一发球更好,袜子脱下了一些步伐。 That may have worked against him.

“”反对约翰,你不必在所有的很多机会。 I had a good look at a backhand pass,” Sock said. ”I think it was a combination of me missing first serves, and him moving in a few feet closer (to return).

“”通常情况下,当他上他的球拍,他打也很干净。 I started missing first serves, and he’s dangerous on the second.”

袜子排名第72,但在新的排名出来将成为全球第二排名最高的美国 – 移动山姆·奎里(61)前进,史蒂夫·约翰逊(64)。 Querrey won a first-round match over Johnson in Atlanta before falling in the second round.

当5尺9寸的塞拉满足6-10伊斯内尔,它仅仅是他职业生涯的第二个ATP决赛。 He lost to安迪·罗迪克2008年在北京第一。

塞拉赢得他的第二个发球中的54%至只有41%的贝克尔了一定的作用。 The match clincher came after a 79 mph second serve. Isner often tops 140 mph.

“”我感觉好极了“”塞拉说。 ”I came out playing well, and (Becker) began to play better, more aggressively. I was a bit lucky at the beginning of the third set and I was able to finish it out.”

后来,Pospisil和袜子晋级双打决赛,击败萨科巴里恩托斯和Victor埃斯特雷亚布尔戈斯6-3,6-2。 In the other semifinal, Querrey and Johnson beat Kevin King and Michael Venus 6-7 (6), 7-5, 10-7.
