Isner-Mahut II Way Shorter, Way Less Fun

At Wimbledon, John Isner and Nicolas Mahut battled for more than 180 games. At the Hopman Cup on Monday, they played for 22. The American prevailed in two sets, although he was a little worried.

“Had I lost that second set, it might have gone four hours, so I was lucky to finish it in two,” Isner told the Associated Press, presumably with a smile.

In fact, the pair was so fresh after their match, they went out and played mixed doubles later in the day. Isner’s team prevailed 2-6, 6-3, 10-8.

Only 135 games to go.
