Delray Beach, Florida: John Isner reached his first semifinal of the year with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Bernard Tomic of Australia at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships on Friday.
In a swirling wind that annoyed players, Isner put up nine aces and won four of his nine service games at love.
"I played well right from the get-go," Isner said. "When he has time, that's when he gets comfortable. So I wanted to keep the points short, which is what I want to do every match.
