This set also went game for game and at five games all, it looked like the American could sneak it if he managed the same as in the first set and broke the Serbian. However, this wasn’t to happen and the match stayed level at six games all. This meant a tie breaker!. Who would come out on top in this, could it be the final moments of the match? After Tipsarevic made the ideal start in the ‘breaker’ and took the lead, things were looking up for him. Isner had other plans though and managed to level the score. For a while, it was tit for tat, just before the American managed to pull one point ahead by going up a mini break. This wasn’t the end though as every time Tipsarevic managed to pull it back on his serve to bring it back level. Eventually, Isner managed another break, this put him one point ahead at 15-14 with Tipsarevic having the next two serves. Janko took his first serve, but it went wide and so he only had his second serve to get back on terms. Janko served his next serve, the umpire called it as a fault meaning that was the match point Isner needed!
In the quarterfinals, Isner will face the Swiss Federer, who overcame Denis Istomin in straight sets 7-5 6-3.
