    They only played three points and it rained again...

    I hope they play tonight or it will mess the schedule up, more rain forecast for tomorrow.

    Players are probably scared of the dark too.

    Yep, due to fear of water and monsters in the dark, players will play tomorrow.

    It's incredible how bad and lazy Isner is. He doesn't even attempt to go after some balls.

    Isner is honestly one of the worst professional tennis players in history if you took his serve away.

    Hewitt made Isner's serve look average last two sets what a performance from him.

    I don't know how anybody can be a fan of John Isner. All he has is a serve and he has no heart.

    What's funny is the American commentators praising how much of a competitor Isner is

    Good man, Fognini was a good bet.

    Isner would have won if he knew how to serve and volley, thats why karlovic bothers Hewitt and Isner doesn't, Isner can't ralley all day like Hewitt. When Isner came to net on some occasions he only managed to lumber slowly as far as the service line, its difficult when you only s&v 1/10 times. :|

    Hewitt does it. I don't see Mahut beating him.

    Not sure about that. Mahut had a straightforward 2 set victory in his semi with Russell and finished earlier. Hewitt has just come out of a 3 setter against Isner and will have less time to rest. IMO it's got to favour Mahut at this point.

    Mahut/Hewitt is a tough one.

    Isner seemed tired and out of sorts. He made a dismissive gesture with both hands after he went down a break in the 2nd set and immediately disappeared to the locker room before the start of the 3rd. Maybe something physical bothering him again similar to what forced him out of Wimbledon?

    Or maybe he just couldn't stomach the thought of having to go on a few hours later and face Mahut again? :wink:

    He is always a little like that but even more so today, like the comms said alot of balls went into the net, MORE REASON TO S&V.

    I think Hewitt will struggle with mahuts S&V. Mahut to win.

    I hope Rusty can pull off the win. I would like to see him win a title or two before he calls it quits.

    I'd have to go for Mahut as well.

    5/6 to win the first set, it's worth £60 that's for sure.

    Henman and Mahut are serve and volleyers
    Hewitt is Hewitt

    Make sense?

    To win the 1st set or the match?

    I've gone for Mahut to win the 1st set.

    It's not the best game of tennis I've watched.

    Mahut three break points and blows them :|

    I think the way the court is, is very strange.

    Lol not always. Just always been a fan of Hewitt. While I do prefer defense and point construction, I can appreciate some big man tennis. The man in your avatar for instance is one of my favorites on tour. :)
