While the world was watching England stumble into the second round, Messrs Isner and Mahut were playing their first round match.

They still are.

As I write, the score in the final set is 36-37..............

How many breaks of serve have there been? Personally I find men's tennis extremely dull as it's often just wham bam serves with very few long rallies. At least Roger Federer knows how to return serve but otherwise, give me women's tennis every time.

The fact that it is 59-59 should give you the answer to how many breaks of serve! When the game was 55 all, there were a couple of rallies, one with 17 strokes. It was far from boring!

Isner wins the final set 70-68....... after 11 hours (and he's due to play a doubles match round about now).

LH - women's tennis better than men's? You're out of your mind, unless of course you mean matches between A. Toptotti (Italy) and C. Minipz (Ukraine)?
