Mahut-Isner

This is ridiculous. Nicholas Mahut and John Isner are about to go into day three of a Wimbledon match. The score in the final game is currently 59-59.

No, I didn’t mistype that. 59-59.

I know the rules say you have to win by two games. But at some point, don’t the authorities in charge have to put a stop to this? Can’t they just say, “Look, whoever wins the first match tomorrow wins.” I know it’s a disadvantage to whoever doesn’t have serve. So maybe you alternate serve. This has turned from amazement into farce.
