Did anyone else watch this? Last night, John Isner and Nicolas Mahut played four sets, winning two apiece, at the Wimbledon tennis championships. They suspended play at 9:07 due to darkness. Today, they picked up the match in the fifth set and played through the entire day without a single break of serve, eventually having to suspend play at around the same time tonight. The match, which has not even ended, has broken almost every major record in tennis; the fifth set alone was longer than any other entire match in the history of the sport!

At first, I wanted Isner to win, but I can't even imagine an end to it anymore--I just have so much respect for both of the players. I think it's really exciting to witness such an Effeminate battle and historical milestone.

Yeah the whole thing was pretty boring to watch, and the players seemed in pain by the end. But the actual numbers involved with the game are friggin' incomprehensible; that's what makes it exciting

Haha, I was at tennis practice during the end of the match. I saw a replay last night at around 12. So many effing aces.
