Isner after his marathon victory:

This one’s obviously going to stick with me, probably for the rest of my life. It’s better than a dream because you can’t even dream of something like this. You can dream of winning a match 22-20, maybe 34-32, but not 70-68. In the back of my mind was, as I’m sure it was with him: “I don’t want to be on the losing side of this”

Wimbledon organizers recently unveiled a plaque outside Court 18 honoring the participants of the longest match in tennis history.
