    For those interested in tennis and not football--Roddick vs. El Aynoui is currently playing on ESPN Classic....

    This is the classic match Down Under....

    One of my favorite matches to watch. Two guys hitting winners all night long for around five hours and knocking the snot out of the ball is pretty fun to witness.

    Just finished it. Epic battle; but it's a shame El Aynaoui is ranked 201 in the world right now. Great player.

    I remember back 6 years ago watching it on TV and looking at the score in disbelief. 12-all, 13-all, 14-all, I kept waiting to see just how far they'd push it and who'll crack. One of the top 5 greatest matches of all time, IMO.

    Yeah, I remember he played in Munich last May and reached the SF as a qualifier. He beat Del Potro along the way, losing to Gonzo in 3 sets. Impressive.

    I'm a high school tennis coach and this is my players' favorite match to watch by far.
