Isner will play the newly minted World No. 1 Andy Murray, who will officially take over the top spot of the ATP rankings on Monday. Murray benefited from a walkover against Milos Raonic, who retired before their semifinal match due to a torn right quad.
Murray leads Isner 7-0 in their head-to-head.
