*MODS couldn't see a thread. Pls merge if there is one*

Currently watching the most tedious and longest semi finals match ever. 5th set but the play is so repetitive.

This match reminded me of the 1980s and 1990s when the serve was dominate.

Biggest problem tennis has is that once Novak, Fed and Nadal retire there really isn't anything else ....

Fatigue won the day there.
Isner could hardly move in the last game.
Nonsense, he won a longer match!

11h05 Wimbledon 2010, 1st Round: United States John Isner def. France Nicolas Mahut, 6–4, 3–6, 6–7(7–9), 7–6(7–3), 70–68 (3 days).

bloody hell. Now I know the reference when the spectator in the crowd shouted we don't want a 70-68.

More quality in the first game between Nadal and Djok than the previous match.

The quality of tennis in the Nadal Djok match in the first 7 games is better than anything of the previous 6 hours plus of the other semi.

Watching these two guys, I still remember the US open final in 2011 between Nadal and Djok. In terms of quality probably on par with the 2008 Wimbledon Final although it never reached a 5th set but the first three sets was mind-blowing.

Apparently those blokes in the semi final played as long today and the Williams woman has played in the whole tournament.....do they get paid the same now.

Think you can add Wawrinka to the list of supporting cast members.

Quality of tennis at the very top of the game over the last 10-15 years has been spectacular.

100% agreed. Just a slight footnote Men's tennis last 15 years has been spectacular.....

Just watched Djokovic mouth to the upmitpre to tell the crowd to SHUT THE **** UP as they made a noise during the rally. The umpire asked the crowd to be quiet but didn’t warn Djokovic. What an arrogant person Djokovic is .He won’t live in his own country

Why does he have to do that silly celebration at the end, yes maybe he loves the crowd but my wife and I don’t love him , what a prat

Probably the least watched Wimbledon ever. Only one game stood out and that was the Nadal Djok semi.

Kind of feel sorry for the people that paid top dollar to watch that final. Glad I gave it a miss.

Sport seems to be going like that.

The major events, Grand National, The Derby, The Boat Race, all seem to be going unnoticed.

Wimbledon was probably not helped by the World Cup, that was on at the same time.

Yep agree. I didn't watch a single tennis match during Wimbledon.
