You do realise he has won a Masters event this year?

Yes, what exactly is your point? He's also lost 3 in his career. A guy with his serve should really be winning more. He's mentally weak.

Nope. The serve is not much if you lack the skill and athleticism to break your opponent.

Incredible standard in this game, after nearly five hours.
How long did the women's semis go for "equal" pay?

Serving first might help Isner here. A couple of bad points for Anderson and that's it.

Tennis net should be higher these days.

Was not originally designed for 9 foot people.

Two break points for Anderson and Isner whacks down two aces.

Not even going to see any of Rafa and Djokovic before I go out.

Other semi will be played tomorrow when I'm at work at this rate.
Was looking forward to that.

I'm off now. Ohh well, I'm fairly certain there will be other chances to see Rafa and Djokovic again.

Surely they should be starting the other semi on Court 1 or something?

Should have done that hours back.
Over 6 hours they've gone at it.
Footballers cramp after an hour.
Amazing athletes.

This effectively being an indoors match probably favours Djokovic

Pretty straightforward for Djokovic.

Best part about this is it keeps the 'ladies' waiting.

Hope it goes all day.

Why isn't the ladies final scheduled to start after the World Cup game ends? It would get more viewers for sure. Also it would eliminate this situation when the players have no clue when their game starts.
