Actually it will be fun. I have autistic tedencies, so I love counting aces and comparing stats when big servers face each other. The match could end with +70 aces and a final tiebreak where only the mental aspect and no talent will decide (can yo keep your cool in a 2nd serve, will Isner go for aces even then?). Also will any player be able to win more than 2 points in the other players serve?
It looks interesting indeed, I think Karlovic will still outace Isner but it will be a close one.
It's interesting: two great servers Arthurs & Karlovic met each other twice, both matches won Arthurs.
6-4 3-6 7-6
6-7 7-6 7-5

So Vatutin continued to play and after he lost the point he asked umpire to check the mark. It was out and the point was awarded to Vatutin.
What makes is interesting is that Brown loses his head like that and complains for a long time - after all he is a trickster himself. Remember this?
If only W could be uncancelled and be held without fans as well, since it cannot be postponed to a later date and also cannot be held at an alternate venue!! It seems unfair to have the AO, USO, and FO, but not W, it really hurts players like Rogie a lot (Serena too maybe?)... Your thoughts??
Thank you to @The Federest for letting me start one. I'm out for most of tomorrow so thought I'd put it on as early as possible.
It was an interesting time in Andy Murray's career. He'd announced his arrival in Tennis with his run to the third round against Nalbandian (lost from 2 sets up) at...
