Mahut has had to serve from a game down the entire set.  Each one has held something like 72 games in a row.  Most incredible thing I've ever seen.

Mahut looks like he has tons more left than Isner though.

Don't know either.  It's gotta be disheartening to see Mahut jumping around between points, diving for stuff, looking fresh.

If you're Mahut, it's gotta be disheartening that you can't finish off a guy who looks about to drop dead any moment.

Now 57-56 Isner.  USA USA USA!

Yeah, but Mahut is basically serving to stay alive *every time.*  Without a doubt he's been in the weaker position the entire 5th set.

Also, I sner has a monster serve.  I think his 2nd serve is still over 100mph

Isner is basically serving and hoping Mahut makes an error or hits it directly at him.  He can barely move.

And yet somehow he's totally in this.

FFS.  Mahut is quite reasonably questioning whether they should stop due to poor light, and the crowd are booing him and chanting "we want more."  What is this, a football match?

That's going to be quite a stat sheet when this match finally ends.  As of now, they've played almost 900 points and amassed just short of 200 aces  icon_eek
