Isner edges Delpo in battle of gaints

American big gun, John Isner who upset World No.1 earlier, continued his form against Delpotro too and seized him with 6-7 7-6 6-3. And Isner will play against Rafael Nadal in the finals who is chasing 26th masters title.

Two gaints serving ferociously, like first break of the match came in second set at 3-3. Isner was nervous at many times in the match, lost many simple forehands. But held his nerve at match point when delpo served a double fault which stopped the momentum for him. After that, Isner listening to the crowd and inspired. His serve was improved, clocking at 135 to 140 mph continuously with  precision. His serve was bouncing to 2 meter height when the ball reaching Delpo. It was too difficult even for Argentine gaint Del potro.
“I've been winning a lot of matches this summer. I feel like this tournament here is where I'm really starting to put it all together. I've beaten three Top 10 guys in a row. For me to do that, I have been playing well, really in pretty much all facets of my game. There's definitely some stuff I can always improve on, but I do think I'm playing well.” - John Isner

“I had my chance to beat him in the second (set). Serving for the match, I made too many errors for these kind of matches. And then in the end, he was fighting all the time. I think he deserves to win in the third set, but I missed my chance in the second set, and I'm very disappointed for that." - Juan Martin Del Potro

Nadal defeated Berdych on the other semis. This is the third time they met this year, Nadal winning all. It would be an interesting contest between Big gun Isner and man in form Rafael Nadal.
Well, I mean, it's been a long time actually. Finally, it's there. I mean, I'm really happy for it because really it's not been but a few weeks, and I was already trying for it like more than two years. It was still far, and now finally, I'm able to do so. But, yeah, that's another goal which I made. And, again, just gives me extra energy to go more, go forward." - Tomas Berdych

I finished the match playing aggressive with the forehand, with the backhand, and it's great. I think I played a very good match this afternoon against a very difficult opponent who came to this match playing very well, and I have to be very, very happy about everything." - Rafael Nadal
