Because out of sight is out of mind, and easy access is the key, we can follow along here, with day THREE! And wonder if this thing is going to go to day four....and five....Should start up again soon.
to play football, not to play trumpet
I really wish DFW was around still, I'd love to see his take of this match...
10 hours...this is just unbelievable!
It should be a while before the match re-starts. If I read this schedule correctly, two matches have to finish first (see court 18):
Which 3:30 there would be about 10:30 here (which I think they were estimating). So a couple of hours.
Yeah, now that I think about it I think you have the timing right - two women's matches have to play out first, and they typically don't take very long.
EDIT: The first match is already over. One to go!
This is the summer of non-content hits for the site (and by non-content, I mean Michigan related). Things like this, and the soccer, and expansion, and sanctions for USC, etc, etc keep popping up, and getting clicks. Heck, the weather has even done it a couple of times it's been so rough.
They're waiting for Mahut and Isner to come on court now.
Going to listen to it in my office. Sweet
Anyone have a non-ESPN 3 stream for those of us at work?
EDIT: Found one
I can't believe I'm saying this - but I can't wait for this match to start back up. (What? I'm excited for a tennis match?!)
Edit: Ha, they're doing the wave.
It's nice to see Isner actually moving today.
Isner comes across like he's tired of this crap, while Mahut seemed somewhat upbeat yesterday. Also, Mahut is in good shape; Isner looks like he's been to a kegger...
I agree. Isner seems to be waiting for Mahut to make enough mistakes to lose, and he's basically relying strictly on his thunderous serve to keep him in. It seems to be a matter of time until Mahut takes a service game from Isner and ends this.
Yeah, I am exceedingly impressed by Mahut, it may be blasphemous, but I wouldn't mind if he pulled this one out. It seems like he deserves it.
So, how long do you guys think this is going to last?
they should settle this with a foot race, Talledega Nights style:
And I'm playing tennis later today, lol. How can I watch 5 hours of a match and it's still not over, with no end in sight!
Betting lines on 150 games? And 200 for that matter...
I meant for this set. Set at 137.
Edit: Nevermind. Was down 0-30 but back to back aces, a return of serve wide, and a return of serve into the net.
Now he's up 69-68
Isner finally broke the Frenchmen. My estimates say they played for like an hour today...?
Arrrgh! I knew this would happen - when I go and do something else for a short time... game over.
But I feel sorry for a Frenchman. I mean, whoever lost was going to feel this way. But man, he looks dead not only physically, but emotionally. It ended too soon. Today. Relatively speaking.
This has to suck for Mahut who had to stick around for the celebration after.
I have never been much of a fan of the player whose game is almost exclusively defined by their serve, enabled by their great height. And it's boring tennis. Mahut was basically played for 3 days against someone who was serving from a ladder. I 'm sorry the guy lost.
ESPN2 replayimg it from 68-68.
