  • 11 hour tennis match at Wimbledon

    That wasn't a typo!

    John Isner has just defeated Nicolas Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set after more than 11 hours.

      It made me think of the 100+ round matches in the early days of prizefighting!

        And just when you thought tennis couldn't get any more boring they went and made it longer.

          I know you just retired Dennis, but I didn't think you were THAT old.

            I suppose this was predictable. Life isn't a Rocky movie.

            Exhausted Isner falls to de Bakker

            One day after winning the longest tennis match ever, John Isner lost in about 75 minutes.

            The Wimbledon marathon man looked weary from the outset Friday, required treatment for a neck injury and was beaten by unseeded Thiemo de Bakker 6-0, 6-3, 6-2.

            Isner had no aces after hitting a record 112 in his epic three-day victory over Nicolas Mahut.

            "The turnaround time -- he just didn't have enough time to get his body right," said Isner's coach, Craig Boynton. "He's one tired boy."

              Well, I'd say the ticket-holders definitely got their money's worth. Like Capt. Kirk says, "You can't argue with a good deal!"
