Isner-Mahut: The finish line
This is the last of a three-part series.
THURSDAY, JUNE 24
It was past 1 in the morning when Nicolas Mahut and his coach Boris Vallejo got back to their Kensington hotel.
Mahut's body ached, particularly the numerous joints that come into play during a tennis match. He stripped down and forced himself to lie in the ice-filled bathtub for another five minutes. Mahut chatted with Vallejo for about a half hour, turned off the lights and closed his eyes.
