ATLANTA (AP) — Top-seeded defending champion John Isner overcame a slow start Friday to advance to the Atlanta Open semifinals, beating Australia's Marinko Matosevic 7-6 (8), 6-4 in hot conditions.

Isner's service game was off as Matosevic broke the American in the first game of the match, and the former University of Georgia star had to fight off break points in his second and third service games to make the semifinals for a fifth straight year.

He was helped, too, by the timing of Matosevic's six double faults.
