The epic match that finally ended: Isner beats Mahut – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs

Nicolas Mahut sat his prize down and took a big breath as the Wimbledon crowd applauded for him.

After the match was immediately over, Mahut buried his head in his towel, frustrated with the loss. Still, Mahut acted like a champion, speaking on court after the match.

Eleven hours and five minutes - and three days after their match first started - it is finally over. John Isner put a three-day match to rest with a final shot that gave him the 70-68 tiebreaker win in the fifth set.

Goddamn...
