Players are now tied at 61 games apiece in fifth set of second-round match

WIMBLEDON, England - John Isner of the United States and Nicolas Mahut of France are now tied at 61 games apiece in the fifth set at Wimbledon in what already is the longest tennis match on record. The first-round match already has lasted 10 hours, nearly 3½ hours longer than the previous mark. The fifth set alone has lasted 7 hours, 6 minutes.

Play is continuing for a third day on Thursday. Isner and Mahut split the first four sets Tuesday, before it became too dark to play. They began the fifth set Wednesday at 2:04 p.m., and play was halted at 9:10 p.m., because of darkness.

I dun watch tennis but.... DAMN!

Yeah, it's been intense for those guys.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

"That fairy needs to stop shouting in my ear, or I'm going to throw her friend I have trapped in the bottle into a lava pit or something. HEY, LISTEN! No, YOU listen. If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link
