Isner keeps hopes alive

In Paris, former Georgia Bulldog John Isner stayed on track for the last spot at the ATP Finals by beating Juan Martin del Potro 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-4 in the Paris Masters quarterfinals.

The American was the runner-up last year and needs to win the tournament to reach the finals in London this month.

“I’ve given myself a pretty good shot to qualify,” Isner said. “But it’s going to be very tough.”

Meanwhile, top-ranked Rafael Nadal pulled out with a right knee injury, and hopes to be fit to lead the London field.

The loss ended del Potro’s hopes of reaching London. The Argentine needed to win to guarantee his place.

Isner will next face Serbian qualifier Filip Krajinovic, who advanced when Nadal withdrew.

In Zhuhai, China, Julia Goerges advanced to the semifinals at the WTA Elite Trophy by beating top-seeded Kristina Mladenovic 6-2, 7-6 (4).

The seventh-seeded German joins CoCo Vandeweghe, Anastasija Sevastova and Ashleigh Barty in the semifinals.

Goerges, who only needed to win one set to advance from the Azalea group, broke Mladenovic’s serve four times.

Goerges has won her last seven matches, including the title in Moscow last month.
