Johns Creek, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Robby Ginepri gave John Isner all he could handle in the second round, but the reigning champion at the Atlanta Open pulled out a hard-fought, three-set victory on Thursday.

Isner, seeded No. 1 this week, saved two match points down 4-5 in the third set, wound up winning the game, then won the next two to close out the Georgia native 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 7-5 and advance to the quarterfinals.
