Wimbledon Breaks all the Records

Shred all the old record books; today it all changed.

John Isner and Nicolas Mahut just completed 10 hours of playing tennis at Wimbledon.  The match was suspended after a 59 -59 tie in the fifth set.  Isner produced 98 aces and Mahut trailed with 92.  The two broke multiple records for Wimbledon.

As the sun set and darkness came over the court, Mahut requested the match be rescheduled due to his inability to see well.  Isner, though he appeared as if he would fall over, was not in agreement with the decision.  However, the match is due to resume tomorrow.


Well done to two tremendous athletes.
