Not really a tennis fan but got to admire these two.
Fifth set at Wimbledon and it's 56 games each!

Was something like 24 games each as went home at 1700 and they'd been playing for a ridiculously long time then.

I loved the commentary by Inverdale et al who compared them to those overpaid pansies who've got ten others to help them run around for just 90 minutes - even with substitutes.

I'm not a fan of either the French or the Yanks but these two are incroyable and awesome!

I turned this on at 33 all thinking it will be over in a minute, a bottle of wine later and they were still going at 50odd all. The yank looked was out on his feet but kept going to the end. I bet whoever is playing the winner will be looking forward to a quick match.

People who say tennis isn't athletic haven't seen tennis like this. Incredible endurance by both. It will have to effect Isner's play in his next match.
