Patrick McEnroe is out, he will be replaced by Justin Gimelstob (and if anyone is going and can get photos for me, I would love that).

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.

Oops, so there already was a thread.
Justin Gimelstob? Wonder how well he'll play, considering that he only ended his career this year.

At least they managed to hire a decent tennis commentator, namely Gerd Szepanski who also commentated the Wimbledon Finals on german Pay TV channel Premiere.

Patrick or John? Neely replaced John's name.

And doesn't the coverage of the final start at 17:10 CET?

Anyone taking bets, how many matches Becker will actually be able to play?

I don't know anything more, but I replaced the wrong name then. I was obviously thinking that John McEnroe would be more prone to miss this, but Fee indeed said it's Patrick to miss

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Good to know then. No doubt about who of the two McEnroe brothers is more popular.

I didn't realize they even show live and some hours. I forgot that there's no tvtotal.

Also on Saturday "Boris Becker meets... John McEnroe" from 16:00-17:00.

Björn Borg is replaced by Jan Gunnarsson.

Yeah, the way he threw his racquet was

The match Steeb-Gimelstob was already played, with the expected easy win for the Gimelstob. 6:1
