John Isner has won the Atlanta Open for the second year in a row after beating fellow American Ryan Harrison in three sets.

The top seed dropped the first set against eighth seed Harrison, but fought back to clinch a 5-7 6-3 6-4 victory.

It is Isner's fifth victory at the tournament, having won three times between 2013-15 and in 2017, losing the final in 2016 to Nick Kyrgios.

Harrison had seemed on track to claim his second ATP World Tour title in the opening set, but could not keep up the momentum in the second and failed to convert four break-point opportunities.

From there, Isner, who who made the Wimbledon semi-final just over a fortnight ago and also won the Miami Open in April, made the most of his chances, breaking his compatriot in the third and serving out to love to seal the match in just under two hours.
