I no this Mahut Isner game is unbelievable.
I am so suprised that they didnt just decide to play a tie break at 50:50,
I feel quite sorry for the one who wins and has to play later on tomorrow, they must be exhausted already.
Just finished watching Newsnight with Jeremy Paxman, and the cheeky buggers rolled the end credits with footage of this match to the tune of "I'm Still Standing".
Seriously I thought Isner was going to drop dead at one point, while Mahut was looking unfeasibly perky in comparison. I would hope, in recognition of the extraordinary circumstances, the organisers would see fit to reschedule the 2nd round match to Friday.
Last but not least, am glad to see Mo Lay still had the use of his legs after climbing down from the chair after god knows how many hours (the equivalent of a flight to New York at least). His backside must have been completely numb!
Match resumes tomorrow on court 18 again, not before 3.30pm.
