(LL) Gimelstob d. (29) Massu 6-3 4-6 7-6(5) 7-6(0)

Gimelstob takes lucky loserdom to new heights as he beats two Grass Gods in a row (Garcia & Massu) to make the 3rd round.

Gimelstob is like a poor man's Mardy Fish. He's had some wins over top players in the past, but he's terribly inconsistent. Will be a toss up if he meets Hewitt, esp. since Lleyton is coming back from injuries and getting married in less than a month/inpending fatherhood.

sore foot/sore ribs will def take out bad back/sore legs (and whatever else Justin's got going on these days), but Justin's made some money this week and that's always good.

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.

i don't think that guys who pull out on purpose at 0-1 in the third round of a qualifying match should be given LLs. that's just poor gamesmanship

Well, by retiring in his final quallies match, Gimelstob allowed Bastl to get into the tournament.

Maybe now Bastl's supposed to give Gimelstob a 10% fee?

Apparently the ITF told him to do it. Not that I disagree with you, but it seems he's not entirely fault.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Borin match except for a couple of points, if Gonzo loses today then we'll finally be able to see good matches in Latin America at least one day out of two, instead of clay courters struggling on grass

Wow, really? Seems like a strange thing to do with fans watching and all. Then again, the fans didn't pay to get in, so I guess they would have no reason to complain.

Well, I don't think my poor Nico is a Grass God, more like clay but a god nontheless. In truth Nico skipped the pre Wimbly grass tournys so I don't think he had great expectations here. That said, I had thought he would pull this one off.

Congrats to Gimelstob.

Yes, Justin had already told Bastl that he could not play the match (back spasms, etc), but an ITF Official apparently asked him to take the court and give it a try, even if it was just for one game. Justin did what he was asked. I don't know if he would have been eligible for the lucky loser spot if he hadn't taken the court, but once he got that spot he was able to take advantage of the trainers and facilities at the All-England, who were apparently working on him right up to his first round match.
