:eek: :worship: aaah! What a player! Match of his career! In nice time too so hopefully Isner-Seppi goes to like 10-8 in the last.



Not 100% sure since that scoreboard went MENTAL for a while. I hope its the final score at least. :scared:

Louk!!! :rocker2:

Scoreboard made it an absolute nightmare to follow, luckily the text commentary guy at the BBC had a correspondent run across to court 14 to keep him updated! :lol:

First Irish win in a Grand Slam in decades. Last Irish player to compete in GS was in 1985 Australian Open. Huge win for Louk!!

BWIN was the only place showing real score. The AO scoreboard showed Louk winning first set 6-4. and then threw out that score and showed 4-2 lead for Louk in the first set AGAIN! :p :lol:

Grab a pint, mates! Ireland has a success story in Tennis. :D

Maybe we finally get to see him play live match against Seppi/Isner winner? Someone has to record that one.

Great!

I remember seeing his father play davis cup for Ireland against the USA when I was a kid - He had a lovely style.....

Delighted to see Louk win and enjoy a rare moment of success for Irish tennis. Hopefully, a taste of things to come.......

Apparently it's the first grand slam main draw victory for an Irish player ever.

"I don't know what's going on right now," Sorensen said. "I've suddenly got so many friend requests on Facebook."

:lol:

Depends how you define Irish.

Matt Doyle was an Irish Davis Cup player from 1982 onwards. He currently lives in Dublin and so presumably has Irish citizenship.

Good to see some mainstream attention for Sorensen

great win for him, even qualifying for main draw was great.. it's great for the game, louk has an explosive forehand which is very impressive if he's in good shape

Good to see some of the local Irish people come out and support Louk and he appreciated it.

Never in doubt for the neck.

I'll be downing a pint or two of guinness in his honour. I wonder if he could be persuaded across the border into the UK?
