6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 59-59

This is just plain amazing.

The match between Isner and Mahut has gone on for over 10 hours; the average men's tennis match lasts only three and a half hour. Lets put that in context shall we?

Imagine going to a football game. In my mind, the typical football (American) lasts around four hours. Now imagine the football game lasting twelve hours. I bet half the player would get some sort of dementia at the age of 30 after that. (Lets not even go into rugby.)

Getting into this World Cup fever: the rules of FIFA overtime is two periods of 15 minutes. A soccer game lasting 90 minutes would have to play six overtimes. Count them: One, two, three, four, five, six.

I'm so shocked right now.
