Jun 24, 2010 Comments

The match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut, scheduled to continue today morning, ended in dismay for the French as Mahut failed to wake up on time, causing the match to be “forcefully forfeited” in favor of Isner, who’s from the States. It is said that 10 straight hours of tennis the previous day was the reason for Mahut’s inability to wake up the next morning.
