Federer came back from two sets down in the first round to win.

Anybody paying attention to this at all?

That's not even the story right now. What about the 10-hour match that got stopped due to darkness. They will continue tomorrow. :laughing:

Nope. John Isner (USA) and Nicolas Mahut (France).

It's 59-59 in the 5th set. Just ridiculous and unheard of.

ONe of the most amazing things in sports let alone tennis. Isner wanted to continue to play but the Mahut the Frenchman wanted to quit. Whoever wins will probably lose nexgt match since they will have a hard time recovering from this.

It's not that he wanted to quit. He actually said he wanted to keep playing but he couldn't see the ball anymore. It's too bad they weren't playing on center court where they have lights (no idea why they don't have them for all courts).

It sucks that they didn't just play the match into the night, they should have just turn on the floodlights.

They didn't have lights. They only have them on Center Court. And there was no way they were about to move the players and the entire crowd into another court to finish it off.

So they have resumed play and now they're at 65-65. Neither guy can break the other. Unreal. They're smashing all sorts of records.

This is absurd. Match point right now for Isner...let's see what happens.

Isner wins it! There's finally been a winner in this match! Unbelievable. Credit to both men for not giving up after 11+ hours of this match. Wow!

Unbelievable match! The longest game ever. I thought Mahut was Isner's clone or vice versa. Besides, they realized MANY aces! I think they broke several records

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

Some of you folks are lucky. I would've watched some of this, if not all of it, but every time it was on, I was pretty much working.
