But on the other hand, if Andy had played some decent tennis he could/should have won this tournament...

He's won Queens multiple times and that has never won him a Wimbledon trophy, he's semied and finaled and never won a Wimbledon trophy. Perhaps losing in the 3rd round of Queens will lead to V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!

I do think it's totally crazy that all of the top seeds are gone!

Andy, Rafa, Murray, Nole out...well, let's hope that it is just one crazy tournament.

Tickets for Queens are extremely expensive (more expensive than Wimbledon for regular days other than final) and the semis are very anti climax. There isn't a single crowd pleaser left.

I would just be extremely upset. The only person I even remotely like is Mardy.

As expected.

Andy will be ready for Wimbledon.

Hewitt just beat Roger on grass. After 15 losses. Is Lleyton can do it, Andy can do it.

But right now I don't know if Roger is the problem.

Looks like Wimbledon is more open than ever in the Federer era. I've got a feeling that Federer won't get to the final but neither will Andy, which will be another heartbreak for Andy.
But Federer is still the favorite obviously.

Just because they all sucked in 250 events doesn't mean anything at this point. EVERY actively playing top 10 player who played a tournament this week lost, this clearly does not mean that will translate to play at Wimbledon. Wait and see what happens!

Andy found an exo to get a few more matches http://www.bnpparibastennisclassic.c...stingPage.aspx

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 understand why you've posted this link here.
