Roddick beats Muller to win Atlanta Open

Roddick beats Muller to win Atlanta Open

Andy Roddick beat Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 1-6, 7-6, 6-2 to win the Atlanta Open title.

After the match ended, Roddick celebrated by gently tossing his racquet into the stands. A few minutes later, he handed the trophy to a random fan who seemed surprised.

"I've won 32 times and in every one of them I've never assumed I was going to win again," he said. "I just kind of go about the process of playing, work hard and hope I can put myself in position enough times where you kind of create some success for yourself."

A sore right shoulder caused Roddick to struggle with Muller's serve in the first set. Before the changeover, he called a medical timeout to see a trainer. He said the shoulder felt pinched, and there was a dull pain.

Fish withdraws of Atlanta 2nd round

Fish withdraws of Atlanta 2nd round

Mardy Fish retired from the Atlanta Open due to an apparent left ankle injury while leading Gilles Muller 6-4, 3-2 in a second-round match.

Fish stumbled to his left while trying to return a drop and his left ankle appeared to buckle as he got near the net. He dropped his racquet and fell to the hard-court surface.

He stayed on his back for about a minute near the left post before limping to the sideline for a short break.

The American returned to finish the fifth game of the second set with two aces. After he and Muller changed sides, Fish waved his opponent off.

Muller will next face Matthew Ebden, who beat James Blake 6-7, 6-4, 6-4.

Roddick and Isner to play 2012 Atlanta Tennis Championships

Roddick and Isner to play 2012 Atlanta Tennis Championships

Andy Roddick, John Isner and Jack Sock have committed to play the Atlanta Tennis Championships next summer.

“I have some great memories of playing in Atlanta where I won my very first ATP Word Tour event,” Roddick said.

“To return and have an opportunity to play in this remarkable new venue will be very exciting. July summer nights in the middle of Atlanta with the skyline lights towering above along with the supportive tennis fans that always turn out here will make for one of the best stops on tour. I’m looking forward to playing in the Atlanta Tennis Championships.”

Fish wins Atlanta 2011 title

Fish wins Atlanta 2011 title

Mardy Fish beat John Isner 3-6, 7-6 (6), 6-2 to win the Atlanta Tennis Championships 2011.

Fish held off two straight match points in the second set to rally from a 5-1 deficit in the tiebreak.

“When you’re in that position, it’s almost over,” Fish said. “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.”

“I didn’t necessarily change anything tactically,” Fish said. “I took care of my serve games a little bit better once I lost serve in the first game of the second.”

After blowing the two match points, Isner couldn’t regain momentum. Losing the point on his serve hurt badly.

“I missed the first serve,” he said. “In hindsight, I probably should’ve served and volleyed on the second serve. I should’ve done that more during the first of the match to begin with. He got it in play, and I went with too big of a backhand and missed it by a lot. You know, he played that point well. And the next points after that, he served two really good serves. Um, but that’s what happens.”

Fish improved to 6-12 in ATP tour finals, 3-1 in his career against Isner. Sunday was the first time he defended a championship successfully.

“It feels great to win here again,” Fish said. “It feels great to start off the summer like I did last year.”

Isner sounded as if he might need a couple of days to get over a chance to win his second straight event.

“I had a match point on my serve,” Isner said. “You can’t ask for much more than that. That’s how it goes. It’s still a good week. I really, really wish I could’ve won this title. It wasn’t to be.”

Fish vs Isner in Atlanta Open Final

Fish vs Isner in Atlanta Open Final

Mardy Fish easily advanced past Ryan Harrison 6-2 6-4 while John Isner beat Gilles Muller 7-5 6-7 6-1 to reach the final at the Atlanta Open.

Fish, who did not drop serve while breaking Harrison on three occasions in a match that lasted just one hour and 19 minutes, said he was expecting a tough challenge from Isner on Sunday.

“I’ll have to play as well as I can,” Fish said. “He showed last year that he’s a tough out here. No one’s beaten him here yet this year. He’ll be tough. I’ll come up with a game plan that will hopefully give him some trouble.”

Isner hit down 28 aces during his win. He lost the second set tie-breaker but then won five games in a row in the third set to seal the win.

“I worked hard in the second set to win that set, and then at the beginning (of the third) I throw all my chances away,” said Muller. “It was hard to take.”

Isner will be attempting to win his second straight tournament, having won the Newport Open two weeks ago.

“I’ve been waiting on this feeling for about four to five months,” said Isner. “Now that I have it, I don’t want to let it go.”
