Isner looks exhausted.
I can't believe how fresh Mahut looks.

I liked it when he said -- "I just wanted to win the game I was playing." They were just going game to game.

69 and 70 aces in the set. Mahut Isner.

This match is just epic:worship: The tennis is mostly serving but for Mahut and Isner to have kept this up for as long as they have and not lose serve once in the last 144 games of the match is just insane.

And now I won't be able to watch the end tomorrow as I'll be at work:(

Reaction from a couple of football fans to that tennis match:

Yesterday, on tv during a worldcup program, after the matches:
* TV journalist talks about history being made in Wimbledon
- A guest (football commentator): I think it's a ploy. I don't believe that it's for real.
* TV journalist: Why not?
- Guest: I'm thinking that both these guys made a deal with each other to garner some attention for themselves
* TV journalist: Don't you think that both these men are playing to get into the next round of Wimbledon rather than to get attention?
- Guest: Nope, I think that they both talked to each other beforehand to get into the record books. Besides, what's so impressive about it. It's a load of hyped up nonsense. They play 10 minutes, they sit down 11 minutes. Not forgetting that they get food and fluids. I can go on for that as well for 10 hours.

This morning, a colleague of mine who is also a football coach:

* I think that this is a set-up. Wimbledon isn't getting a lot of attention because of the football so they thought of a way to get some media attention.
- So, you think that they're playing 10 hours and counting to get attention? I don't buy that.
* Don't be naive. Of course they are. This is not a real match. And today, the queen is coming for the first time in ages. Coincidence? I think not. All these things are just a way to get attention they're not getting at the moment because of the world cup.
