Australian star Nick Kyrgios struggles against Cameron Norrie in Atlanta before quitting while 7-5 3-0 down

Seeking his fifth victory at Atlantic Station in the last six years, Isner will face the victor of the night semifinal between eighth-seeded Ryan Harrison and Britain's Cameron Norrie.

The eighth-seeded Harrison took one hour and 44 minutes to overcome British left-hander 3-6 6-3 6-2 to set up a rematch of last year's decider.

A Wimbledon semi-finalist this year, Isner carried on where he left off in the third and deciding set as he broke Harrison early before closing out the contest to love in the 10th game.

With the US Open just a month away, the World No.18 will have to overcome the recurrence of an issue that has plagued him since Queen's a year ago.

However, it was tough going at times for Isner with Harrison taking the first set and being the better player early in the second.

"I'm very happy to be back in the final here".

The American was pushed to three sets by German sixth seed Mischa Zverev before he prevailed 7-5 4-6 6-1.

Isner is 7-1 in the semifinals, with the lone loss coming to Andy Roddick in 2012.

"To his credit, he (Ebden) played much better than me that day in Australia". Isner's only other losses in the event came in the finals, to Mardi Fish in 2010 and 2011 and Nick Kyrgios in 2016.

He's 1-3 against Isner, winning in January in the Australian Open. Isner won titles in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017. It helps a lot.

Cameron Norrie has progressed through to the Atlanta Open semi-finals after Nick Kyrgios suffered a hip injury.

"Now, I'm playing in my backyard and he beat me in his backyard".

Nicolas Jarry of Chile beat top-seeded Dominic Thiem of Austria 7-6 (5), 7-6 (7); Argentina's Leonardo Mayer topped second-seeded countryman Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 4-6, 6-3; and Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili took down third-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain 7-6 (3), 6-4. "But we'll see what happens".
