Lu has played on the ATP Tour for 13 years and reached his first final on Saturday. He played with tenacity, weathering Isner's serving power while saving 10 out of 10 break points he faced.
The match was similar to Isner's quarterfinal victory over fifth seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. Isner played six tiebreaks in 10 sets at the tournament and won five.
"I'd like to thank my chiropractor because I had a bit of a banged up ankle coming in here and he spent tireless hours working on me and without him I wouldn't have been able to take this court," Isner said.
"I've been through injuries, I dropped my ranking and came back and in the last few years I was really stable in the top 100," Lu said. "But this was a really good step to reach a final on the ATP Tour and I hope I can take this performance and go into next week and the rest of the year."
