ATLANTA -- Three-time defending champion John Isner beat Taylor Fritz 7-5, 6-4 on Friday night in an all-American match to advance to the BB&T Atlanta Open semifinals. Brandon Bolden Jersey .The 6-foot-10 Isner set up a match with the man who replaced him as the tallest player on the ATP World Tour, 6-foot-11 American teen Reilly Opelka.Hes had a great run, the top-seeded Isner said about Opelka. Im certainly going to try to end it, but its going to be very tough.Isner overpowered Fritz, the 18-year-old seeded eighth, with 20 aces for his 14th straight victory in the hard-court event. The former University of Georgia star has reached the finals five of the previous six years.It was a good win, Isner said. The first set was obviously tight. I was feeling good and feeling strong. In the second set, I had to keep holding serve as well as I could, and I did that.Opelka, 18, topped seventh-seeded Donald Young 6-4, 6-4 in another all-American match to reach his first tour semifinal.Ive been doing a really good job with my movement, winning points on my opponents serve, Opelka said. The way I am serving now, I know I can at least get to a tiebreak. But being able to hit good returns and passing shots is huge.In the other semifinal, second-seeded Nick Kyrgios of Australia will face Japans Yoshihito Nishioka.Kyrgios beat fifth-seeded Fernando Verdasco of Spain 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3, and Nishioka topped Argentinas Horacio Zeballos 6-4, 6-4 to reach his first tour semifinal.Ive been working on my serve a lot. More percentage, more power, said Nishioka, 20. And before I was very emotional, throwing rackets and getting frustrated. But Ive been more calm since Wimbledon. I think thats why Im winning more now.Kyrgios won in Marseille, France, in February for his lone tour title.

Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee and Texas enter their annual womens basketball matchup amid unusual circumstances.The 17th-ranked Longhorns (2-4) will remain below .500 whether it wins or loses Sundays matchup in Austin, Texas. Tennessee (4-3) has tumbled out of the Top 25 and would drop to .500 with a loss, which would mark the latest point in a season that the Lady Volunteers havent had a winning record since starting out 4-5 in 1981-82.Weve just got to have more of a sense of urgency, Tennessee coach Holly Warlick said of her team. I think the atmosphere and the tone in practice has been, `Lets go to work. This is a business. Youve got a job. Youve got to get it done. Both teams reached regional finals last year but havent been able to carry that momentum over thus far.Texas had to replace three players who started nearly every game for Texas last season in first-team all-Big 12 center Imani Boyette, Empress Davenport and Celina Rodrigo.The Longhorns record also is somewhat deceiving because all four of its losses have come against top-10 teams: No. 1 Connecticut, No. 5 Mississippi State, No. 6 South Carolina and No. 10 Stanford. Of those four losses, only the South Carolina game was on Texas home floor.There are teams across the country that have maybe played one high-level game, Texas coach Karen Aston said. We could easily have put ourselves in that situation, and we wouldnt have many losses and wed probably have a false confidence about ourselves because young players have to learn by trial and error.Texas instead has learned some tough lessons while averaging 17.3 tuurnovers per game. Shaq Mason Jersey. Tennessee is coming off an 88-66 loss to No. 3 Baylor that matched the Lady Vols most lopsided home defeat ever. Tennessee trailed that game by as many as 35 points.We started off kind of slow and got ourselves in a hole we couldnt get out of, Tennessee center Mercedes Russell said. We werent dictating. We were just letting them do whatever they wanted.Tennessee committed 15 turnovers against Baylor and had 21 more in a loss at Virginia Tech a week earlier. The Lady Vols have spent the last few days emphasizing the importance of playing with more energy than they showed against Baylor.The more we would turn the ball over or do things (wrong), the more kind of hesitant we got, Warlick said. When you get hesitant, you worry about how youre playing, and you dont have any energy and you dont have any effort.Both teams still have plenty of time to turn things around.Tennessee need only point to last year, when the Lady Vols had their most losses (14) in school history yet rallied late in the season to reach a regional final. And while Texas is only one defeat away from matching the loss total from last seasons 31-5 campaign, all those early lessons could pay dividends for the Longhorns as the season wears on.Im not displeased at all, Aston said. I would be displeased if in a month we dont look like weve made some improvement because of the situations weve been in.---Follow Steve Megargee at www.twitter.com/stevemegargee Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys White Cheap Authentic Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Camo China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Discount Jerseys China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Youth NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
