John Isner breaks "Casino Curse" at Newport, Rhode Island

American John Isner broke the 34 year old “Casino Curse” by winning the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Championships title at Newport, Rhode Island in a straight set victory against Olivier Rochus 6-3, 7-6(6). The “Casino Curse” extended back to 1976 and was a curse on all number one seeds. Vijay Amritraj was the last number one seed to win the grass court event at Newport. The big-serving John Isner now has two ATP World Tour singles titles, with his first occurring in Auckland, New Zealand in 2010.
