Just like in 2010, it took John Isner three days to complete his first-round match at Wimbledon. The only difference, of course, is that back then he was playing a record-setting marathon encounter against Nicolas Mahut. Today, after two days of rain, Isner finally beat Marcos Baghdatis in a match that required 148 fewer games and 528 fewer minutes than it took him six years ago.
