WHAT THE F.....
it was insane!!! the match was canceled yesterday and I wanted to know how it ended. just out of curiosity, I didn't even know the players, 7 hours and some later and it's still not over!!! the longest match ever!!!! and I'm glued to my computer wondering what's going on.
the stats:
Isner has 98 aces, Mahut 95 -- both eclipsing the previous high in a match at any tournament, (78). There have been 881 points, 612 in the fifth set. Isner has compiled 218 winners, Mahut 217. Isner has only 44 unforced errors, Mahut 37.
BTW Isner is 6'9, ESPN said 6'10 but I'm trusting ATP, he is a giant!!!!! can you imagine his hands? and he looks sooooo tired!!

I have to say I was getting very tired of tennis, every other final was the same, Federer/Nadal and I really don't like either so, taking into account that tennis is the only sport I follow, I try to watch some of the first matches in any tournament. I loved the beginning of the Federer/Falla match, I really thought he was going to win and it would have been the biggest upset ever!! but as usual in tennis he choked and that was it.
can't wait til tomorrow!!
