SHANGHAI (AP) -- Eighth-seeded John Isner reached the third round of the Shanghai Masters by beating Kevin Anderson of South Africa 7-6 (3), 6-7 (8), 7-6 (7) Tuesday.

Neither player was able to break serve in the match, the first at the tournament to go to three tiebreakers. Isner saved three break points and Anderson saved four.

Isner finished the match with 24 aces and Anderson had 21.

"The quality was good as far as serving goes,'' Isner said. "But other than that I think we maybe both could have played better a little bit.

"I guess it was exciting from a fan standpoint. Anytime a match comes down to a third-set tiebreaker, it's going to be exciting.''

In the first round, 14th-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan defeated Di Wu of China 6-2, 6-4.

"Obviously, it's not easy thing to play after winning the tournament,'' said Nishikori, who won the Tokyo Open last week. "You want to rest. But I had a good day today.''

Also, 13th-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland beat Albert Ramos of Spain 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 15th-seeded Gilles Simon of France beat Jurgen Melzer of Austria 6-4, 6-2, and Florian Mayer of Germany defeated Bernard Tomic of Australia 6-4, 6-0.
