As a sports fan (well, most sports) this was truly amazing to watch. Not only is Isner (IZZ-ner) like 6’9, but Mahut (ma-HOOT) had to win 50+ games off his serve, just to stay in the match! That’s games, not points, by the way. Of course we had to put up with the ho-riffic Hannah Storm who has to one-up her broadcast partners at every turn after any one of them provides the slightest insight. But Patrick McEnroe is the 2nd best analyst in the business (and in his family) so that made up for Storm’s nonsense.
Of course, Mahut had to Frenchy it up by basically quitting when it was 59-59, but the dive above more than makes up for his typical Franco-cowardice.
How about this sports day we have had so for? From the World Cup to Lawrence Taylor to this Wimbledon match…I just hope it doesn’t end with Cliff Lee no-hitting the Cubs.
