Has John set another record? Of playing the longest and shortest match in one tournament?

In my opinion Isner will never be a great grass player, but he has a real chance to win the USO. If he can keep this level of fitness and keep improving the way he has, who's going to beat him in a 5th set tiebreak? Definitely a dark horse for the title, but we'll see where the game is at by then.

Gee, you knew it was coming, good effort to even play, but it's still depressing.

To the highs of yesterday to this.

Saw early bits, Isner was barely clearing 100mph first serve at times.

only if they speed it up like hell and even then Isner isn't twenty anymore, really don't see him winning a GS:scratch:

it's too early to jump on the bandwagon isn't it...?? u can't win titles by relying ONLY on big serves...

Tall players mature way later, so consider him 20/21 in tall person years. Of course you may be right, but I thought this last year after the Roddick match and the fitness he's shown this Wimby has far surpassed what's necessary to win a GS. Gotta believe :angel:

I think it has less to with his height than the fact that it took a while for Isner to learn a proper baseline game. The serve has always been top 3, his baseline game was a complete and utter joke a few years ago.

Good win for Thiemo, but expected. After that long match you couldn't expect more from Isner. He was clearly exhausted. Take some rest now. That second round match was great :hug:

Really unfair that they put him on first, i might hate isner and maybe he never would have won anyway but if he had been playing this match later on in the day he might have been able to atleast put up more of a fight

It's a tough situation because that match along with the Youzhny-Mathieu match were the only 2nd round matches today, everything else had been finished. And, Isner had doubles to make up, which of course he withdrew from, but they weren't going to know that.

MacTheKnife
06-25-2010, 01:33 PM
I was surprised he went on first today, but in the end, I don't think a few more hours would make much difference. The guy was simply mentally and physically exhausted. Nothing else could have been expected.

Thiemo also have to play double later today. So that's also a reason why they played the first match.

Oops I forgot he had doubles too...that gives them even more of a reason to put them on first. After seeing him play though, I don't think the result would've been different if he was on second or third. Maybe they would've been more lenient if he withdrew from doubles, but he treated the situation with class.

The doubles are less important and not an excuse for this torture.

Give some respect to Isner. His body must still be aching due to that encounter.

It was predictable that John would pull out of the doubles, but it wouldn't be fair to Thiemo to put it later. He has a doubles match later today, and will have to play third round tomorrow.

Mahut was already playing doubles last night, which was a bit harsh - especially as they started so late that of course they only got the first set played. So it didn't even have the advantage of keeping the draw on schedule.

Hopefully John is taking this Wimbledon as a big plus. Sure, he may have been hoping to win more rounds and points. But he won incredible amounts of recognition in the public, as well as respect and perhaps a little trepidation from guys in the locker room. This could certainly help him win sets and matches in the future. Nice bonus to get in -- and likely stay in -- the history books.

In the meantime, he needs to keep filling out his game, both stroke- and strategy-wise. Too many players out there who know how to neutralize and wait out his strengths.

I'm sure Isner was feeling the effects of wednesday on friday. Always takes an extra day for the real aches to set in. Disappointing regardless, would have been nice to see him pull off another win, but that'd be a miracle.

Poor John, he couldn't summon up any more strength. His body must be absolutely wrecked by now.

And it seems that the more respect John gets here, the more disrespect he gets along with it. It's absolutely pitiful how people could trash a guy who just shattered near-unbreakable records just hours before.

it doesnt matter what some people do they will always have their haters

i hate that he won in the end and i still hate him as a player, but i respect that he was able to go so long.
I think that one reason people also are insulting him here is because that think he's inredibly stupid for even bothering to play his next match

Expected. Isner is the second casualty of an absurd rule that allows the 5th set to go on forever. Funny to see how many people enjoy seeing players be treated like expendable gladiators. Hope none of the two innocent players involved pays any further price for such foolhardiness.

Hope John didnt injure himself any more. Also i think Mahut wouldve faired much better today but it doesnt matter at all. both guys wouldve lost.
