Forgot competeting iwht Wimbledon and the historically unique 59-games-all-in-the-fifth-set match. Previous aces in a match record was 51. Each of Isner and Mahut have now served over 90. Sorry. This is a cricket page, but my ghast has been flabbered.


We could have had an interesting contest had the Windies not shut shop on the fourth morning. They were going at almost 4 an over when Bravo and Chanderpaul decided to bat like they were trying to save the game. I don't get it. Are the Windies so rubbish they're happy to play for a draw with two days left? This when they're already down in the series and there's just one more test left. Teams annoy the hell out of me by being so negative.

The Reverse Sweep

Agreed Dave. How could I forget Wimbledon! That match you mention has fitted ten full sets of tennis alone into the final set! Incredible.

The Reverse Sweep

It was very sad to see such a negative performance from the Windies. What must Richards, Lloyd, Greenidge et al have made of it? They obviously decided to play for a draw. Disappointing in the extreme.
