4-4, 5-4, 5-5, 6-5, 6-6, 7-6

this is almost as close as the H2H

While I don't mind duck if that's what wins, I personally find ostrich more fitting.

My vote tied it at 21-21. Ostrich has completed the comeback. This could turn into Isner vs Mahut

The bigger gap, the bigger the bird. It should be obvious.

Ostrich is perfect because it is both a perfect homage to heya and a very embarrassing animal to begin with.
