Anderson, Isner and Muller advance to the quarters in Atlanta.

Picture

Kevin Anderson is through to the quarter-finals of the Atlanta Tennis Championships for the second consecutive year after a 6-1 7-5 win over Michael Russell. The big-serving second seed fired down 10 aces to set-up a last-eight meeting with Gilles Muller, who edged past wild card Robby Ginepri 7-6 (8-6) 2-6 6-2.

John Isner won an epic all-American clash with James Blake 7-6 (10-8) 6-7 (7-3) 7-5 in just shy of three hours. Blake battled back from a break down in the second to take the match to a decider but his younger opponent held on. Third-seeded Isner will now meet Yen-Hsun Lu after he recovered well from a set down to beat qualifier Marinko Matosevic 3-6 6-1 6-2.
