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.

Re: Doubles Draw

I agree Bunk. Any time you see a qualifying draw with first round byes it makes you wonder about the rest of the tournament. I'm sure that Noam and Harel would have been a doubles team here, but they both got into other tournaments. The JMG/Vince pairing just cracks me up and I almost wish I could be there to see that. Vince is such a character, but they could actually do well together.

Re: Doubles Draw

I'm having a really hard time picturing those two on court together. I guess I don't know either of them personally but it has me and I do not understand why Mardy is playing with his coach and not James. Actually I don't understand why either of them are playing doubles at all. James is just coming back from all his random mental and physical trials and tribulations and Mardy really needs to be fresh for DC the following week. This whole thing just has me repeatedly

Re: Doubles Draw

Good point. If James played with Mardy, then Morrison could play with Merklein (they've played together before). I'm guessing that there was a lot of conversation at the Doubles sign in table last night to figure out who would play with whom and who could fill out the draw. The Amer/Max pairing is another interesting one and Kendrick isn't in the doubles at all. Mardy must have been offered one heck of a guarantee to play, especially after Andy chose not to. As for JMG and Vince, I just hope they don't get to talking about player websites (since Vince and I discussed doing his in LA this year)

I know.... especially after being picked for DC the following week, while the rest of the team will be at Andy's place in Austin for a camp there while he plays in Delray...

Amer/Max is actually a rather interesting doubles team I think. They have similar styles of play. I was really impressed by Amer against Carlos at the USO (was the first time I'd seen him)... I wouldn't be surprised if those two were actually successful

uh oh.. for your sake I hope Vinny and JMG don't talk too much
