◼️ The American battled the third set against the German Zverev and celebrated the last title to be played in Key Biscayne.
The American John Isner, it’s been some time since we’ve seen a USA tennis player champion in Crandon Park, Key Biscayne, when consecrating in the Masters 1000 of Miami with a final score 6-7 (4), 6-4 and 6-4 against the German Alexander Zverev.
After a favorable start for the European, the giant of North Carolina imposed its power and in the last set broke in the decisive ninth game. With three aces followed in the last point, Isner celebrated the first Masters 1000 of his career.
The 32-year-old broke the zero wins record that he had against Zverev in the three previous matches: Shanghai in 2016, Rome and Miami in 2017.
This Miami Open edition just will be the last in Key Biscayne as a stage to give way in 2019 to Hard Rock Stadium, in North Miami and with 7,000 extra seats and nine more courts.
