Get some decent clothes from Lacoste. If we wanted Andy in a plain white Polo, I'd have gone to Kohl's and bought one for him myself.

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: The back in black 06' thread. (hopes for 06')

I agree with a lot of what you guys say..
- Quarterfinal of each Grand Slam (i.e. second week?)
- Win a TMS event (Canada! :P Nah, any of them would be awesome )
- Beat Federer
- Finish the year in the top 5

Those are my hopes. If we're talking about extreme(r?) hopes, I'd love it if he won the Australian Open..

Amen to that.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Adding to all that you all have posted,

- Do well in the DC (winning it would be awesome for Andy) because we all know how much it DC means to Andy...
