Nick Kyrgios booed off court after retiring from Atlanta Open with injury

Nick Kyrgios booed off court after retiring from Atlanta Open with injury

John Isner won the BB&T Atlanta Open for the fifth time in six years Sunday, beating fellow American Ryan Harrison in the final for the second straight year.

Norrie, 22, had looked to be heading for his first ATP final after taking the first set before the eighth seed fought back to win 2-6 6-3 6-2.

Harrison, world No 53, will meet John Isner after the top seed defeated Matthew Ebden 6-4 6-7 (6-8) 6-1 in the other semi-final.

British No 2 Cameron Norrie progressed to the Atlanta Open semi-finals after Nick Kyrgios retired mid-match.

His retirement from the match also calls into question his US Open Challenge, with the final grand slam event of the year just a month away.

Isner has won three of his four career matches against Ebden, but the Aussie defended his home turf with a four-set victory at this year's Australian Open. "That's how our sport goes sometimes, and I was very fortunate today". "Obviously I played Ryan here in the final previous year", Isner said.

A day earlier, Kyrgios had pumped up his chances following a cruisy 7-5 6-2 win over American Noah Rubin.

"I've played both those guys before".

Isner won the titles in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017. It helps a lot.

The Australian second seed was trailing the left-hander 7-5 3-0 after 52 minutes of play when he decided he could not continue.

That helped set up the second straight Isner-Harrison Atlanta final with Isner triumphing previous year.

"This is exactly what the doctor ordered for me", Harrison said. "We'll see if I can turn the tide".

"This is exactly what the doctor ordered for me", said Harrison, the runner-up previous year.
