John Isner ended his six-match losing streak in five-setters, coming back to beat Ryan Harrison 5-7, 6-7 (7), 6-3, 6-1, 8-6 in all-American matchup in the French Open's second round.
It's the first time in Isner's career he has come back to win a match after dropping the first two sets.
The 19th-seeded Isner - best known for winning the longest match in tennis history, 70-68 in the fifth set at Wimbledon in 2010 - lost in five sets at each of last year's four Grand Slam tournaments. That includes an 18-16 defeat in the second round at Roland Garros against 261st-ranked Paul-Henri Mathieu across more than 5 1/2 hours.
The victory Friday over the 92nd-ranked Harrison was quick by comparison, lasting 3 hours, 50 minutes.
