Isner advances at BB&T Atlanta Open; UGA/GT tandem lose

John Isner fired 16 aces to advance to the quarterfinals of the BB&T Atlanta Open with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Ruben Bemelmans on Thursday night at Atlantic Station.

Because he was playing his first hard-court match since Miami in March, Isner said he didn’t feel comfortable early in he first set in which Bemelmans broke his second serve.

“I just told myself not to get too frustrated and to try to let the match run its course,” Isner said.

Isner bounced back, breaking Bemelmans’ first serve in each of the next two sets to take command. Isner, the No. 1 seed and a former standout at Georgia, will play 19-year-old Jack Sock on Friday, not before 9 p.m.

Isner is attempting to win his second consecutive tournament after taking the title in Newport, R.I. last week. He is one of four U.S. players in the BB&T who will represent the U.S. in the Olympics.

The top-seeded Kansas Jayhawks were ousted from the NCAA Tournament Saturday, and mostly likely the dreams of many who had them winning it all in the office pool.

Northern Iowa’s miraculous win was far from being the only upset of the day – St. Mary’s toppled Villanova – but likely had the largest implications.

Of the more than 5 million participants in ESPN’s bracket contest, only 0.57 percent had the Panthers moving to the Sweet Sixteen. Dare we say a much larger audience had Kansas going all the way, including one Commander in Chief.
