Wimbledon semifinals

Submitted by UM Fan from Sydney on July 13th, 2018 at 9:33 AM

With a seemingly large amount of avid tennis fans who frequent this site, I'm surprised this thread was not created. Right now it's Isner (his first ever major semifinal) versus Anderson. It has been a great match thus far, as the first set went into a tie break. After this will be an epic match between Nadal and Djokovic. Federer's match the other day was fantastic and I'm surprised he lost. He had match point in set three, but lost in five sets.

Saw all 4 of these guys play last week...it was amazing. 

Two massive servers in this first one. Good so far and sets going to tiebreaks as expected.

Isner recovers from a break point in a tough game, still rolling. 8-7. He's starting to struggle a bit, though. 

The type of tennis in this match compared to what will be seen between Nadal and Djokovic could not be more different. I'm an Isner mark because he's an American and because he's tall, but either guy here will probably get demolished on Sunday.

Isner saves another break point. Great game, match still going. 

I would say no end is in sight, but Isner can't keep winning these games where he goes down early forever. Either he comes up with a miracle break or Anderson is going to capitalize soon.

The problem with the drama of a match like this is that it's all in the tension, not in the action. Basically waiting for someone to string a couple of mistakes together to lose their serve.

But it's still riveting. 17-16 now.
