Day 6 - Your most memorable match


Wimbledon 2010, John Isner def. Nicolas Mahut
6–4, 3–6, 6–7(9), 7–6(3), 70–68

Unfortunately for me, I started watching tennis not that long ago (~2 years). So my choice of memorable matches is not that great. However, the honor goes not to anything I've watched live or a Grand Slam epic, but rather to that one record-breaking first round match in Wimbledon.

To quote myself:
This match is pretty much the only thing I remember from last year's Wimbledon (I already mentioned that in the opening post of this blog). Seeing it, you could just feel history being made before your eyes.
It wasn't great tennis. It wasn't even good tennis. It was a showcase of strength, determination, and wonderful sportsmanship.
