Isner wins 2nd set of Wimbledon semi vs Anderson


John Isner has won the second set against Kevin Anderson 7-6 (5) to level their Wimbledon semifinal at 1-1.

Isner jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the tiebreaker and converted his third set point with an ace.

Neither player has been broken so far. Anderson had the only break point of the set at 30-40 in the ninth game but Isner saved it with a forehand volley.

Isner called for a trainer to have his right index finger treated at 2-1 but didn’t seem bothered by any problem when play resumed. —AP
