    Commentators proposing moving the Wimbledon Men's Finals one day later. Extra day of rest for the players and won't be on the same time as the World Cup Final. Makes sense

    Sorry, but I'm a betting illiterate. I meant, who was the favourite and by how many games?

    How does a human being return Isner's serve?

    Isner was favorite, but it was a coin flip

    Bet 110 to win 100 for Isner on my book, bet 100 to win 100 on Anderson

    The games spread was -1/+1, so they were expecting this to be decided with tiebreaks every set

    I took over 48.5 games total in the match..one of the easiest wins of the year

    This Anderson needs to win Wimbledon and get a 30 for 30 on his run

    Beating Federer down 2-0 and match point, beating Isner in a 7-hour game and then defeating Nadal or Djokovic

    But it does matter. A 70-68 5th set on a third round is harmless for TV. They can go back and forth between different matches. They can stop broadcasting it when it's time for another show to start. You can't do that with a semifinal match.

    You must bet that network owners and sponsors are ing seizing right now that they don't have Nadal and Djokovic on their screens on this moment. And since these are the people that decide the changes, a semifinal match going this long (between two non-rating drawing players) is something that might be the turning point for a rule change.
    70-68 should have been a wake-up call. If it can happen in one round, it can happen in a later round. (If anything, it's more likely to happen in a later round when players are more evenly matched.) If they had changed the rule back then, this wouldn't have happened.

    But rich people only try to change somehting when they are the ones getting screwed.

    It’s nice to see the result settled regularly and not in Penalty Serves.

    Nadal and Djokovic will have to be finished under the roof and with the lights.

    11 pts tie-breaks might be a good option for Grand Slams 5th sets, imho.

    Tennis should be such a bigger sport. I don't get why they're so strict with the crowd making noise and the players showing too much emotion. Imagine a tennis player pulling the celebrations we see in the NBA. Hell, even the commentators are boring. Tennis can be so much more exciting and it would benefit from a little loosening up tbh.

    ^^I don't think the culture allows it, at least from what I've seen on Twitter and such..

    There were people angry on twitter because Isner and Anderson were screaming towards each other I see many that apparently hate Djokovic because he "lacks humility and class"

    Very small number of Black or other Ethnic Background player in tennis..A couple Blacks maybe a japanese and thats really it so the easy target is the eastern Euro.
