What's "24-22" for Mahut from the perspective of the battle against Isner

I think it's good to link also here a thread of longest sets in history.

Mahut broke pretty quickly in the 8th game to go 5-3 up and then served it out pretty easily. I went off to watch Ratiwana vs Bloomfield/Willis (the brits werent half bad!) and when I came back it was 4-4 in the 3rd.

Boggo was serving first so he had a HUGE advantage, Mahut had to serve to stay in it 17 times (if I count correctly) and Boggo really didnt threaten him at all on his serve. Both of them were holding serve quite easily until 10-10 when Boggo hit 2 double faults, the second of which was on break point. Mahut came out to serve for the match at 11-10 and got broken to love! Now considering Boggo hadnt had a single break point chance from when I'd rejoined the match at 4-4, everyone in the crowd was pretty shocked. And it wasnt a total choke from Mahut, Boggo just suddenly started getting some returns in and played a perfect crosscourt lob at 0-15 and then 2 passing shots to get the break. At this point it had turned into a beautiful sunny evening and a lot of the ballboys and umpires were sitting down to watch some tennis after a day's work

From then on it went on serve for what seemed an eternity. I really wanted to go see some of the Berankis v Evans match which was on the next court but this match started at 5-5 and finished before the end of the Mahut Boggo epic! . Boggo really wasnt challenging that much on serve, the closest he ever got was 30-30. Mahut on the other hand had more chances. He had a break point at 16-16 which Boggo saved well and another at around 19-19 which I really thought Boggo was going to concede because he looked so tired, but he saved it nicely. Eventually Mahut got 15-40 on boggo's serve at 22-22 and took the second break point when Boggo hit the ball long. Despite going 0-15 down, Mahut won the next 4 points and the match, which he celebrated with a huuuuuuuuge scream. Id say it was around 8:15 when the match ended so the match was probably around 4:30 long in total, im guessing.

All in all I was pretty impressed with both guys, its a shame that they met each other in qualifying cos I really think both deserve to get through to the main draw. Mahut was a lot more fiery, Boggo seemed to be a lot more introverted and Im surprised he didnt feed off the crowd at all, who were mostly subdued and quiet throughout the entire match. Mahut had his usual diva moments: staring at people who were whispering, pretending to hit balls at girls who were walking by the court and always taking an eternity to get up after any slip. However, I think the right man won in the end, as it was he who put much more pressure on the other's serve and he also managed to serve to stay in the match so many times, something I dont think Boggo wouldnt have been able to do.
Thanks for the report. Obviously you didn't see the consecutive breaks that started the final set, but I take it that break to love at *11-10 was Boggo's only BP from 4-4 till the end, and the poster who wrote Mahut also served for the match at 15-14 was wrong?

Do you remember the duration and ace count for each?

It was very impressive as most of the points were long rallies but and he had to pass Mahut at the net from deep approached on two of them.
Couldn't have been at 10-10, that was when he was broken.

What an epic. Can't question Boggo's fight in this match. Hope Mahut makes it through to Wimbledon now.

Great fight from both of these guys Mahut will not be a guy that anyone wants to draw. Boggo needs a WC bad.

A fighter like Boggo should have received a WC.

Gutted for Boggo.

He is able to play a number of matches like these, but it always seems to be him that ends up losing them. It pretty much sums up why his mental approach in matches is often questioned. He has the talent, but ultimately lacks the conviction.

Credit to him for playing a tight match there, especially in recovering twice from a break down in the decider...and also surviving those other break point situations as FB described. Mahut was comfortably the favourite before the match imo, so it was nice to see that Boggo could exceed expectations. But it is a shame that he couldn't ultimately get the job done.

Hopefully he won't get too down on himself and will bounce back in the challengers over the summer.

haha yea I was actually the same towards the end but i was so stubborn I didnt want to leave. I remember I kept on groaning whenever Boggo held cos it really felt like the only way the match could end was when Nico would break
