Re: John Isner Request

No, he's probably already achieved his highest ranking. Yes, he's a nice guy but so what. He doesn't have enough fans on this forum to deserve a subforum.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

don't remind me I honestly thought he was going to start doing better. But he is too old to really make any inroads now.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

In his first 2 years as a pro he has done great on the tour. He should have at least a good 4 more years. If he keeps good progress like he has been, he will be were his talent should be.
