I saw a minute or two on ESPN before the soccer game. They said the games usually don't make it to 10. Did I get that right?

I didn't get to see any of it. I'm amazed that it go on so long.

Were both guys trying? Did it degenerate into a farce at some point, like not really trying hard to return the serve? Did they start screwing around or were they competing to the end?

FantomForce

yeah they both kept trying, had amazing serves but couldn't break the other one

That's really impressive then! Hopefully it'll be re-run somewhere soon.

They were trying... they were clearly exhausted, but they were making effort. Its not like they have a silent understanding that they want to do something crazy... its clear they both want to be done with this match, but they both want it to be over as the victor. This looks like it will destroy the loser.
