    The first round match between Nicholas Mahut and John Isner is in the fifth set, and is now tied at FIFTY NINE FREAKING GAMES EACH! This has by far exceeded the record for longest match ever.

    Match now suspended until tomorrow. I hope they go another 59 games each tomorrow too.

    This is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen...the 5th set alone is longer than any other full match in the history of tennis.

    Nobody will remember this in two days when they're both out of the tournament.

    :fail: this will probably be remembered more, when its all said and done, than who won the tournament.

    And both these guys will probably make a few bucks in some commercials

    Finally, mercifully, thankfully, it has ended. Isner wins 70-68 in the fifth set.

    An 11 hour match will be forgotten in 2 days??? That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

    So break this down. What does 70-68 mean?

    Yes, an 11 hour match will be forgotten in a few days. I am willing to bet if on Saturday you walked around and asked people to tell you names of the two people who were in a 10 hour match and where it was less than 10% would be able to do so. I just read who was in it and I can't remember. Mens tennis is more boring than soccer.

    You have to win by two games. It was 68-68 then 69-68 then Boner got another to make it 70-68

    they might not remember the names but they will remember this match. you are gonna lose this one bad. It is like the 1999 British Open, 90 percent of the people out there couldnt tell you who won it( I couldnt and I follow golf) but 90 percent have heard of the french f***** that imploded and lost.

    Do the parks in Chicago still have the tennis walls built, so gheys like Zoso could play by himself. They made for awesome fastpitch backstops!

    A normal set goes up to 6, and you have to win by 2. The previous longest set was something like 28-26.

    Paul Lawrie beat Justin Leonard and VanDe Velde in a playoff. If this were to happen in the final it would be a bigger deal. It's the first round of a month long (I have no idea how long it is but this shit fells like it takes forver) tournament. Mens tennis fucking blows.

    People will remember that this match existed, but many won't remember who will involved.

    I think we could probably all agree on that, no?

    I agree and much prefer the woman grunting but this is historical and will not be forgotten. Nice use of the internetz on looking up Lawrie. Im coming over to punch you now.

    Corrigans. I was pounding Lienenkeugals Berry Weiss like I was FedEx. The puke actually tasted good. It was a good thing I drove becuase I was WAY too drunk to walk home.

    Side note, I drove past Corrigans a few weeks ago and it is closed. I liked that bar.

    They usually have a piece of plywood, which I've used a few times in my day. It's really hard to volley with a little wall though. You get Tim Henman'd.

    Did it go 59-59 without any stoppage? I've read there were three stoppages in the match.

    Two stoppages because of darkness, and one stoppage for a piss break

    The important thing is that the hard nosed, grindy 'Merican beat some sissy Frog who was eventually going to surrender anyway.

    You mean the handball courts?

    I think they still have one in Gage Park.

    No in the tennis courts they use to have walls strapped to the fences with a line painted across to represent the net. Solo dudes used them all the time. As a kid we would use them as a backstop to play fastpitch and we would then have an actual fence to hit homeruns over. I know Cornell and Davis had them. I know the handball courts at Gage, that was my little league park.

    Fastpitch with a wall is the best. We used to play it with a tennis ball in a church/school parking lot that had a strike zone already painted on. Tennis ball was tough to hit. Eventually they installed an electrical box over the strike zone, because god forbid kids play sports. Another cunt planted a tree on home plate in the field she owned but didn't use.

    I haven't talked to anyone about the Hawks winning the Cup in the past 24 hours. Therefore it was a meaningless event that no one will remember.
