Re: The comeback trail (fingers crossed). 2009/2010

Jan-Michael lost to McClune 3-6, 5-7. I think he was just a bit tired. He served well, but had a few more double faults than he's had all week and he just didn't look very energetic. He moved well but his groundies were a bit off on both sides. Considering how good he looked on Friday, I really do believe that he just ran out of gas on Saturday. With the doubles and singles, he got 7 good intense matches in this week and he earned ATP points again in both so he's back on the rankings.

He got a special exempt entry into the Laguna Niguel Futures this week, just 20 minutes south of Costa Mesa, so he'll be playing again on Tuesday. I know he asked for a doubles wildcard, but I don't know if he's been given an answer on that request yet.

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.
