Wimbledon 2010 started two days ago and its already been crazy. In Federer's opening match, he was down 2 sets to none and was down 4-4, 0-40 on his serve in the third. He fought all the way back to take the Game, Set and Match. Now, Isner is playing Mahut in what's now the longest game in Tennis history. Currently, the fifth set is at 36-36! Unbelievable!

Go Roddick!
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Incredible, 59-59 and it's going to a third day. The fifth set alone is longer than any match in tennis history now. This is absolutely insane.

Words can't describe what was witnessed today! Tennis will never see anything like that again. Records shattered all over the place.

Not wanting to go overboard (it is 6am...!) but that is probably the best sporting event I've ever seen.

Truly, positively amazing.

Does anyone know when the last service break was between these two? I believe it was atleast 144 straight games between the two of them *without* a break! Mind-boggling!
