Adam and his Tesco bag.

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'll be posting a short video clip on here in a sec. Unfortunately it doesn't include any serving and you can't really judge from his ground-strokes whether he's physically comfortable.

I thought he looked absolutely fine. Although like I said, I didn't see him serve so I can't comment on his apparent lack of power. But Adam and I didn't see any signs of his shoulder or back problems.

I'll try to watch him again today and see how he serves.

Re: The "One month to go before the REAL tennis season begins!" Grass Thread!

well that's good, hopefully it's more of a mental thing of letting himself go for it full out. I think Robby (assuming he beats Vinnay) will be a very tough first match, I imagine Robby is very confident right now

Have a great time and thanks!

Have you seen the cover of last year's Artois leaflet.
It was Andy Roddick wearing red shirt, obviously photo-shopped Artois red

He comes to an idea wearing the signatured colour of the tournament or inspired from Justine yesterday.

oh no.
Photoshopped red one is not from the last year. It's the cover of Queen's 2006.

I was going to say they photoshopped his red on the Queens tickets cover this year but they didn't. They've just made everything red. Plus the ticket holder has Johnny Mac and Becker and oddly no Lleyton if they were aiming for the best players at Queens.

Re: The "The mighty King of Queens has arrived!" Grass Thread!

I watched him do that interview from the other side of Centre Court.

In his practise today with Grosjean () he said that "he couldn't serve properly still". And also that if he hit two volleys and he didn't win the point it wasn't worth winning.

Re: The "The mighty King of Queens has arrived!" Grass Thread!

Yeah.

The volleys thing cracked me up. Also he ran from his practise for the second day in a row. Again in an good mood with Grosjean but other than that, awful.
