American tennis player John Isner wanted to make sure that the Newport title stayed home, as he has made it all the way to the Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open. The top seed outclassed Australian sensation Matt Ebden in straight sets 6-3 7-6 to capture his third Newport championship in eight attempts at the American grass court event. Isner, the 2011 and 2012 Newport champion, wanted to come back to the event, having skipped the tournament last year On the other side, ATP World Tour No. 249 Ebden made the final after picking up four consecutive first-round losses at Newport. Prior to this year's edition, his best result at the tournament came in the 2011 quarterfinals.

Ebden was given no chance

Big-serving John Isner got off to an early 3-0 first set lead and then routinely held on to his serve to take the opener. As no breaks of serve were seen in the following set, nor a single break point, the set went to a tie-break. Though Australian Matt Ebden put up more of a fight in the second set, and took a 1-0 lead in the tie-break, he never stood a chance, as the American never trailed after that, effectively sealing the win.

Isner, 32, had a good day on his service, firing 17 aces and winning 37-of-41 of the points played behind his first serve. The world No. 21 converted his only break point try of the match and gave zero break point chances to the Australian in an hour and 14 minutes of play.

Isner dominated the whole week

Now an 11-time ATP singles champion, John Isner was as dominant as anyone this week in Newport, losing no sets nor service games in four matches played. Isner didn't face a single break point on his way to making it all the way at the Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open.

Australia's Matt Ebden and Sam Groth, as well as locals Dennis Novikov and Bjorn Fratangelo fell to Isner on the grass of Newport in the past couple of days.

Fine tuning ahead of a beloved tournament

Experienced John Isner continues his US campaign as he is now set to make a trip Atlanta, where he will be featured for the seventh time at next week's BB&T Atlanta Open. The Atlanta event is one of Isner's favorite events, as he has had success so far in his career at the tournament. The American has been playing regularly in Atlanta since 2010, capturing three titles and runner-up spots, while losing in the semifinal stage in 2012. Isner heads to Atlanta hoping to continue his good form and achieve more success in the state of Georgia.
