NEW YORK (AP) - Despite 26 aces and plenty of home-crowd support, unlike in his previous match, 13th-seeded John Isner lost to 22nd-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber in the U.S. Open's third round for the second consecutive year.

Kohlschreiber's 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (5) victory Saturday over the highest-ranked American means the host country has only one man left: 109th-ranked Tim Smyczek, whose third-round match is Sunday.

After beating France's Gael Monfils in the second round, Isner said he was "disappointed" that fans were cheering so vociferously for Monfils. On Saturday, there were chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!" in the second set, and "Here we go, John! Here we go!" in the fourth set - but Isner failed once again to figure out Kohlschreiber at Flushing Meadows.
