Meanwhile, at Wimbledon

Check out Isner-Mahut in men’s singles.


  1. And in game 66 of the fifth set, Mahut saves two match points.

  2. Seriously, turn to ESPN2. This is just insane.

  3. There does come a point where it ceases to be a sporting event and simply becomes a form of public torture.

  4. So now the fifth set will go ONE HUNDRED GAMES minimum. The fifth set alone is only twelve games short of the all-time record for games in a match. The fifth set is also, on its own, longer than any other MATCH in Wimbledon history.

  5. Suspended for darkness–for the second time–at 59-59 in the fifth set.

    Possibly the most unbelievable single sporting event of my lifetime. The fifth set ALONE is now longer, both in terms of games and clock time, than any other match in the recorded history of tennis.

  6. After 11 hours and 5 minutes and 980 points, John Isner finally wins.
