Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under
I didn't see much of this match at all, but for some reason it reminds me of the Wimbledon match he lost to Gasquet - as in, oh he's killing me with his backhand, so I'll keep hitting there. I don't understand why/how he gets into that thought pattern, but it makes me want to grab him by the shoulders and shake him vigorously (which of course, he would hardly feel at all).
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.
