It was never in doubt that he would win. The close matches I am talking about.

Expected 2-0 lead for the US.

Melzer and Koubek are two of the biggest muppets in tennis, people wasn't expecting them to win a live Davis Cup match against top 10 players were they?

Before GWH comes in here and starts yawning about how unimpressive Blake's win is because he didn't beat a top in-form clay courter, let me just say that this win marks Blake's first DC win on clay, ever. He had lost the first set and surprisingly fought like hell to get the break in the second. For once, he won a LIVE away tie rubber. This is the same mental midget James Blake who craps out on even his best surfaces for no apparent reason. Koubek is a tough opponent for James so this is a very impressive win for him. Well done to the USA's Weakest Link.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

GWH won't post in here, it's not about Roddick.

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.

All,

Great deal for James and the US team. I saw that he and Stefan were tied at 1-1.

Chokefest- Blake choked the first set away and then Koubek the second.

James was stronger in the end, props to him. He's reached an outside of US quarter final in a slam and won a key DC victory in the final, so his mind seems to be stronger than ever.
