Isner had said he was playing with house money after coming within a whisker of defeat on Wednesday, and No 7 seed Johnson collected today, winning 6-3 5-7 7-6 (7-3). While 208cm Isner's powerful first serve remained a weapon, it was when he was forced into second serves that Johnson pounced. The 27-year-old Johnson consistently pushed inside the baseline to return and during rallies to put the pressure on world No 19-ranked Isner under a sunny Auckland sky.
