"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Rockets

Just a tremendous match–the longest of all-time–going down at Wimbledon. It was called yesterday because of darkness tied at two. Today, they played the fifth set, and it was called again, 59-59 in the tie-breaker. Hol-ee Cow.

A Giant American vs a French Elf.

How much longer will they be allowed to play tonight?

Oh, they called it? Man, what a day at the office.

And the thing of it is, it's not even a tie-breaker -- no tie-breakers in the fifth set at Wimbledon. They've actually played 118 games (not points) in that final set, which is absolutely ridiculous.
