Make some food.
agree with that last point especially. Fed will always be the most watchable to me—the restlessness and improvisation, even in the “boring” matches
To be real for a moment: Kevin Anderson is in absolutely outrageous physical condition. It takes a lot to lug a 6-foot-8 frame around for that long. And he’s now earned a spot in his second Grand Slam final in a year’s span. Not bad for a 32-year-old, brazenly shrugging off the the “journeyman” title in his late…
Anderson defeats Isner, 7-6(6), 6-7(5), 6-7(9), 6-4, 26-24.
Kevin Anderson is so tired he can’t even muster a celebration. Respect.
The pain. It’s almost over.
Here we are:
Kevin Anderson breaks in incredible fashion for 25-24. Most notably, at 0-15, he fell down, picked his ass up, played the next shot with the racket in his LEFT HAND, and continued the rally to win.
A 0-30 Anderson lead on return was yet another false sign of hope. Isner holds for 23-22 in the fifth.
After Isner won his infamous 70-68 match, he proceeded to lose his next match in straight sets. It took 74 minutes. Whoever wins, we can at least look forward to a fantastic men’s final.
An error from Anderson, a blown gimme-volley from Isner, and it’s deuce at 21-21.
Isner teetering from fatigue, blasts an ace to even the 21-21 game at 30-30.
I really, really hope they break the curfew. Or just play them simultaneously. But this place isn’t exactly known for bucking convention
