Well, shouldn't you give him the benefit of the doubt until you hear something about the match? Sjeng has never struck me as a quitter, he seems to be a pretty decent fellow. Washington is quite humid and hot this time of year (which is why they don't play until 4 pm each day) and he may have just been completely overcome, or he could have twisted an ankle or anything. Has he been nursing any injuries lately?
Thanks for answering. I'm glad to hear that you like tennis, and I understand your desire to vent your frustration. Can you leave the body parts out of it next time? I think that would be cool. I don't like quitters either, but I've had to retire from a match due to heat exhaustion and it's not a nice feeling at all.
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.
