70 TO 68.

70 to 68. When a baseball game goes past about the 14th inning, it always seems to me that the intensity of the game increases. The players know as well as the fans that they are part of something special. Both John Isner and Nicolas Mahut knew that they were playing the greatest match of all time, that they were playing at a very high level, and that they were sustaining that high level for hour after hour. Yesterday I found myself attaching significance to the score as the SET approached 112 games because the announcers told us that the longest MATCH of all time was 112 games long. In the end, Isner won the set and the match in the 138th game.
