John Isner's a Day Short at Wimbledon
Dude stands 6-10, so it's tough to say he's short on anything.
But as long matches go, John Isner fell short in this one.
The American will forever go down in Wimbledon history as the victor in 2010, when he bested ongoing sublot second banana Nicolas Mahut in a match for the ages:
- Result: 6-4, 3-6, 6-7(7), 7-6(3), 70-68
- Time: 11 hours, 5 minutes over the course of three days
That'd be a hard one to top.
And at this year's Wimbledon, he didn't.
But it wasn't for an unitentional lack of trying.
Basically, that was the highlight.
Pretty vanilla, except for the test of human endurance. And Isner outdid this in 2010.
Dudes should've gotten creative, like these four did last year:
On the bright side for Isner, while Tsonga was forced to recover in time for the next round, he'd be able to spend his stronger American dollars in Brexit-hexed London.
