    It has smashed a bunch of records this set alone I think is longer than the longest match, total aces, Isner almost has 100 aces alone. Its just unheard of how long this is going on. The most amazing thing has been the Isner 2nd serves hes firing them in there for aces a ton of times just crazy.

    Mahut is even close to breaking Karlovic's previous record for aces that Isner break about an hour ago.

    I didn't see the majority of this - did Mahut break at all in the latter stages? Or has serve been held the whole way? That must have sucked for Mahut if he broke to go up, say 35-34, but couldn't hold serve.

    EDIT - And again I answer my own question by looking it up myself - Mahut has not had a break point yet this set. Isner has had a few, but obviously no conversions.

    Mahut had a break chance and converted in the 2nd set(yesterday) hes had 2 or 3 chances in the last 20 games when he was a point away from a break point and Isner fires a 2nd serve ace its just been unbelievable.

    Edit- Isner holds saving 2 break points!!

    These guys have spent more time on court the last two days than some players spend through the quarters or semi's.

    The groundskeeper is like F***! The service areas already look like its the start of the 2nd week. atleast its not center court lol

    P.S. Isner is a zombie out there but still holding serve. Great stuff what a match.

    This match is just insane. No breaks since the 2nd set.

    I watched it off and on yesterday. I would not call it amazing.

    A very long historic tennis match. Does not mean it was amazing. Now I did not watch the whole thing but honestly I saw a lot of aces and very short rallies. I didn't see any long rallies even early on. Nothing great. Just regular everyday tennis where two people couldn't break each other. Maybe I missed some amazing plays but from what I saw and have read I wouldn't call it amazing unless you are just referring to the length of the match. Now that is amazing that they didn't fall dead or pass out from exhaustion. Overall though not amazing.

    Great match, although I didn't watch it.

    Reminds me of the 1992 (?) WWF Royal Rumble, the Battle Royal.
    The reporters said every 3, 4 minutes:
    "Is Rick Martel still in there?"
    "Yes, The Model is still hangin' in there"

    Yeah, it wasn't amazing in the sense that they played great tennis. Today, they did play really good tennis but yesterday ended up being pretty poor. That's no diss on the match, they were completely wore out obviously... but I get what you were saying.

    Not "amazing" in their play, but "amazing" in the fact at the length and fortitude it took to win a match like that.

    Well even players with energy dont usually have long rallies playing on grass plus these guys were dead out there yesterday. It was amazing cause the length and how they kept playing and they werent hitting alot of errors either, very few break points in that fifth set over the course of 138 games is crazy. Isner was serving incredible and taking huge risks on second serves and getting aces with them on very big points. Mahut was facing the pressure of serving to stay in that match over 60 times!

    The mental drain these guys had to go through was probably worse than what happened physicially they had no time to lose focus or else it would have been over. The match ended on some great shots as well. The last two games were great. For sure an amazing match it had everything.

    Good to see Venus get dumped out.

    Tsonga is playing unreal even though he's injured. Good stuff.

    Good first set and a half from Tsonga... then Murray wore him down.

    Yeah, Berdych never really stood a chance. Rafa at his best is just incredible to watch. Congrats on another one, Rafa.

    The Rogers Cup is on right now. Nadal is facing Wawrinka in the first set, it's in a tie break 11-11. Incredible tennis.

    What a great tennis match. Nadal eventually wins but boy, there were some fantastic rallies. Gained a ton of respect for Wawrinka.

    Great start to the Rogers Cup. Great to have such a high profile tournament in Toronto.

    Nice to see her avenge that loss to jie at Wimbledon a few years back. The ball toss is still really bad, her serve is fine its just the toss that transforms her serve from a weapon to just a normal serve. Hopefully she keeps going though.

    Semi Finals New York Open on right now, #2 Roger Federer is facing #3 Djokovic. #1 Nadal cruised to the finals earlier today. Awsome.
