i just turned the tennis on in desperation, and you can imagine my shock seeing the 5th set at 56,57

Mahut requested for it to be stopped due to due to darkness at 59 all, and not surprisingly Isner agreed.

the match has been going on for over 9 hours of play, and will resume tomorrow presumably. the last set alone is longer than the previous longest match in history, at around 7 hours
(i remember it being 412 mins when i turned on, so i guess its about 420 mins).

not only do i feel sorry for the players having to slog it out for over 9 hours, and wind up with a complete draw, but it was the commentators first match too, and by the look of things he will have retired before it finishes.
