Stosur has a solid chance at winning this, after taking care of Henin.

Federer is having some issues here in the 1st round of Wimbledon, was down 2 sets and got to a tiebreaker in the 4th set, but now it's going to the 5th set.

There is a 33-33 5th set going on, and Federer is kind of struggling again. Someone else is watching Wimbledon, yeah?

I saw that superlong set going on and all I could think was how lucky the person that faces them in the next round is. They must be absolutely knackered after that shit.

The fact that it's Isner's giant, uncoordinated ass and some random, whiny Frenchman only makes it better. I actually prefer this than it being two relevant players.

I really wish I could watch this, because its insane just taking a look at the replays. There was one time Isner had the guy down 40-0 and had break point, and the Frenchman nailed 3 aces in a row to bring it back to even steven.

Its going to be funny, because I bet after this match is finished, everything else is gonna pale in comparison.

You seriously do not want to watch this. Not only will it take you a whole day, but other than the novelty of it being long, it's pretty bad tennis.

This. I must've gotten about a dozen texts today asking if I watched the match. I watched from after the US game until about 36-36. I told my wife we may as well change the channel because it ain't ending for awhile. I want to know what the percentage of points in this 5th sets has had more than 3 shots?

I would like to see a cap at majors, make it 15-15 because if guys have had 8 chances to break a serve, they need to get it to a TB to finish. Now its just like playing the card game WAR.

It hasn't been that awful of tennis.. just because you can't break someone's serve doesn't necessarily mean it's terrible tennis. It's not exactly Federer/Nadal out there, but there's been some great shots and considering they played for 7 hours straight, it was pretty entertaining.

I will defer to you because I did not see as many games, but besides the great drop shot/reaction volley/volley winner by Isner and a couple of good points at 15-40 and 30-40 by Mahut to hold it was mostly serve, return into net, wide, weak return, winner.

I was suggesting at work tonight that both men are only allowed one racquet in their bag tomorrow!

So Isner gets bounced in straight sets, and hopefully the pundits regain their sanity about him.

That being said, the Isner/Mahut match has brought more mainstream attention to Wimbledon and tennis as a whole than I recall in years, so good on them or that, at least.

Never would have imagined a guy that plays 200 games in one match would get rocked in straight sets in the next match..; if only there was some sort of correlation between the two.

There is: a really good player wouldn't have gone to nearly 200 games with a qualifier.

My buddy theorizes that Roddick would actually be a decent guy if not for the fact that he's been deal with soul-crushing failure for the better part of a decade. Hell, he might actually still have most of his hair.

Meanwhile, on the Real Tennis side of things, the men's quarterfinals are completely stacked, featuring 6 of the 10 best players around, plus Berdych (who's been playing girthy tennis of late) and Lu.

Figured I'd bump this back up...

Today's most notable happenings: Serena goes down to Dumpy Stinkpussy, and and Mardy Fish's desire to actually be in shape pays off in his win over last year's finalist Berdych, en route to his first quarterfinals birth.

Every time I see Venus in the stands for one of Serena's games, it always takes me a second to realize she's not some random homeless woman.

Wozniacki's also out, but then her ranking is pretty preposterous anyway.
