If anyone cares, history being made right now at Wimbledon with American John Isner up 42-41 in the fifth set! Match is just under 8 hours...

This is getting out of hand. Federer just completed his 4 set match including 3 tiebreakers throughout the ongoing duration of this fifth set.

Ive watched 25+ inning baseball games and quadruple overtime basketball games, but this is something else, ive never seen or heard of anything like it.

Whichever one advances will lose the next round...no way you can play tennis for 10 hours straight and try to play within a week after...That's insane...

I hope not. Anything to break this open is fine by me.
