Do you really think Andy or Melzer even cared (hell, or Gasquet or Tsonga for that matter )... fun day-off hit for the 2 guys left in the event, little paycheck for the two who aren't and nice chance for some fans to see top players up close on a little court Everyone wins
No worse than yesterday's match between the Bryans and Nadal/Robredo, actually that one was probably worse. They explained on FSN why all the grandstand matches are men's singles - because of worldwide TV obligations. that means no women and no doubles on grandstand
hi bgt- shades of the the davis cup-although i doubt that gasquet tsonga will play doubles there
And Roddick most certainly will not. This was a play time match, the match that had more implications for DC was the all French match earlier in the day. I think they are still shuffling their team around, but it will probably be Gasquet, Tsonga, and Llodra/Clement in doubles, right?
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.
