Mardy Fish provided himself small credit for saving two second-set match points versus John Isner.
Fish said, “When you’re in that position, it’s almost over. I was lucky to get out of it. I played some good points. I don’t think he missed any first serves there. I stuck some returns and put some balls in play.”
Fish hit Isner in the final for the second straight year at the Atlanta Tennis Championships, receiving a 3-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-2 success Sunday in Norcross, Ga.
The world’s No. 9 player recovered from a 5-1 deficit in the tiebreak.
Fish said, “I didn’t necessarily change anything tactically. I took care of my serve games a little bit better once I lost serve in the first game of the second.”
Isner was attempting to win successive affairs for the first time in his profession the same of what Fish did in 2010 at Newport and Atlanta.
However, the 6-foot-9 final service game of Isner consisted of two dual-faults. He committed 29 unforced errors to Fish’s 11 through two sets.
