    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.

    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.

    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.
