For those who like action and a good photography challenge, this is the place to be! No matter what court you're on, typically there's a good seat close to the action (especially on the smaller courts). This is American John Isner who currently is ranked #26 in the world. Big John has the distinction of winning the longest match ever played in Wimbledon history -- 11 hours and 5 minutes -- in 2010. Whew! When Isner is on the court, it's pretty much guaranteed the match will go the distance! He pulled off a victory here against Brazilian Thomas Belucci with a second set tie break (of course).
And, this is American Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Although this was a singles match, the way she was prowling at net you could tell she's an incredible doubles player. I'm not a big doubles fan, but it turns out, she's the #1 female doubles player in the world. How about that! With her black compression socks and shorts, Matter-Sands is known for her unique style on the court. What I didn't know is that when she walks off the court, she trades her game face in for an infectious smile and fun, outgoing demeanor. More on that tomorrow!
