Newport: Top-seeded John Isner became the first top-seeded player to win the title in the 35-year history of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, beating sixth-seeded Olivier Rochus, 6-3, 7-6 (6) on Sunday.
Isner had an overpowering serve all week on the grass courts in Newport, and it didn't desert him in the final.
"No. To be honest, I don't think so," Isner said when asked if he's ever served better. "I just served excellent. I was just fortunate to have that weapon. I was in a groove all of my matches. It's huge. I was very lucky to have that serve and it carried me to the championship."
