That helped set up the second straight Isner-Harrison Atlanta final with Isner triumphing past year.

But Isner acknowledged he had been fortunate to prevail over Harrison, the eighth seed, who took the first set and was clearly the better player early in the second.

John Isner joined elite company after his victory.

Isner dropped the opening set against the eighth seed but the big-serving American responded in the second, saving four break points and converting one of his own to level the final. Former hoop Dawg Yante Maten signed a two-way contract with the Miami Heat and tennis star John Isner came from behind to win his 5th BB&T Atlanta Open.

Isner has won eight of his nine semifinals in Atlanta, and will look to improve his record of 13-12 in finals.
