That's three hours the viewers will never get back. I'm glad I missed the match but will check out the final tiebreak.

isner is fortunate that he was playing anderson, one of the biggest chokers among big servers, ever

regardless, isner isn't winning the tournament on these slow courts

perhaps he can do some damage at paris, if he enters. or if he enters vienna or something

Sooooo NID, the scoreline and the Anderson choke, and the fact that Isner hit 24 aces to Anderson's 21, and that the match took over 2 hours.

Tennis lost, but it would have lost either way.

I didn't watch the match, but looking at the scoreline, that must have been a better match than the pushfests in AO and USO finals.

I saw most of the match, and found it quite enjoyable. Anderson really needs to stop choking, he had match point on his serve and blew it.

He is South African, South Africans are notorious chokers.

if isner is serious about becoming a threat at grand slams, or even winning a masters title, then he must be more aggressive (i.e volley, serve + forehand combo at every opportunity) and not play such long matches

no point in clutch serving against mugs in tie breaks if you've no energy left for the big boys

These 2 serve bots deserve each other. No game at all except serving. Feel sorry for the people who were present at that match. I applaud their courage and tenacity. I would do something less painful. Like sticking my fingers into a food processor.

When two serve bots serve in an empty stadium, does anyone win?
