I know it will be removed to off topic

But just got to pay respects to these two - an epic sporting moment that will never be repeated

One set lasting longer than any match in history
Mahut having the bottle to serve to stay in it 55 times
Mahut 95 aces Isner 98

Wish them well for today - incredible achievement.

yes was watching it yesterday and although both players aren't going to be winning any grand slams you cant take away from them there fitness and determination not to be beaten, hopefully will catch the end of the game later lol

Ah Tennis. Isn't that the game where someone hits it over the net (why do i get a picture of Lee Bradbury in my mind ?) then someone hits it back over the net. Then (excitement mounts) the other guy hits it over the net, then the first one hits it back over the net.................then zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I was sat next to Isner at breakfast when I went to Wimbledon on Tuesday!!!

he just picked at a bit of fruit (nerves?) - bet he wishes he'd have got a bit more fuel on board if he'd have know his match would take 10 hours over 3 days?

by the way he is a very very big unit
