A nice opportunity to break squandered by JI.  TB let off the hook to hold 4-3.

TB struggled to hold but he did to go 6-5.  JI can't convert his opportunities in this set. 

Unsurprisingly, it is in a tiebreak.  JI with a break. 3-1

Now TB up 4-3 & serving. JI's serve letting him down when he needed it.  Superb passing shot from JI to pull back a point. 5-5 on his serve.  TB with match point .... he fluffs it! 6-6.

I hope JI can serve it out. What more does he need?

JI breaks TB to win 11-9 in the tie break!   

He made a chore of it despite home support, but well done to him to win the title as he is about to play the USO.  He'll need to serve at peak & consolidate it with more confident ground play, but for now, good job in defending his title here.

OK... I'll go on record now to say Isner will go out early at the US Open... (but congratulations to him on his victory here in this tournament).
