Wimbledon 2010
Don't know if anyone else is watching the John Isner vs. Nicolas Mahut match, but it's unbelievable.

They're at 41-41 in the 5th set. The 5th set alone has gone on nearly five hours (it began over an hour before the US started its World Cup match).

It's like being in the 38th inning of a baseball game, with both starting pitchers still on the mound.

It's rare that I watch tennis. Usually if there's some big name like the Williams sisters or Nadal, Federer.. Then I'll watch. I find that tennis is much more fun to play.

Also heard that James Blake kirked out on some news reporter. Didn't get around to actually reading about the actual event though.

I mentioned this in another thread but come next week, it will be the only thing on at the beach house, every year his tennis dominates our families vacation. Luckily this year do to work I will only be there over the weekend.

@DR - yeah, [URL="http://articles.latimes.com/2010/jun/22/sports/la-sp-wimbledon-notes-20100623"]Pam Shriver got mouthy about how poorly Blake was playing, and Blake responded[/URL]. They both acted unprofessionally, but whatever.

The Isner/Mahut match was incredible to watch. Both extremely exhausted, but neither would throw in the towel. I ended up watching that over the Germany/Ghana match yesterday afternoon.
