Now that Rainer is ranked 98th in the world, will he have to qualify for the U.S. Open? What's the direct entry cutoff?

Re: Schuettler

It is one simple thing: After the year 2003 with over 100 matches in it he had only 10 days holidays. That was not enough for him to recover completely. And last year he had right after the season a surgery on the knee, which meant, that he didn't have holiday there also, but rehab. And because he is a kind of player, who mainly depends on his physical strength, it is only a bit "logical", that he couldn't repeat the results of 2003.

The Top 100 players got direct entry this year (plus 4 players who used injury protected rankings). The entry list was based on rankings 6 weeks ago, so where was he then?

(but the full entry list is posted in the tournament forum, so take a look there and you can see how close it was for him ).

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.
