The stats of this match are ridiculous. No breaks in 36 regular games and neither player could even crack 25% of return points won. Amazing they even managed to earn a few breakpoints.

Nice. Never really looked at it that way. You're right.

You've got to feel sorry for the commentators. That sort of play is fun to watch for a bit, for a change, but not for a whole match.

No you don't. Chicks don't like guys being that tall ;)

This is how real men play tennis. It's a shame the surfaces today rob these studs of slams.

I don't think playing on the faster, low bouncing courts would have done these tall guys any favors.
