    Marathon match at Wimbledon to enter its third day

    Post by PKC on Wed Jun 23, 2010 8:30 pm

    Don't know if anyone's been following this year's Wimbledon, but there is a colossal match of epic proportions going on right now. These two guys have been playing for 10 hours and have now had their match halted for the second time due to darkness. The two players are tied at 59-59 in the fifth set.
    It is now an on-going record match for time and length.

    I thought of +ing you, but then does it matter when your rep is like 272?

    Meh I did it anyways. As for the match, its crazy ridiculous. 59-59 games in the 5th set is just unreal. U wouldn't even find that in video games

    Its a shame someone had to lose that... And a shame that the winner is all out of energy and will probably lose his next match.
