An American male (John Isner) and American female (Serena Williams) are both in the semis.   How long has it been since an American male made the semis? 

Edit: Of course, forgot that Sam Querrey made it in 2017.    Back-to-back semis for American males, after being shut out from 2010-2016

At what point do you talk about Serena Williams being one of the greatest athletes of all time?

Here she is leading the semifinal, and they are talking about how she isn't 100% so her finals opponent might have a chance.

that means nothing to me without launch angle, exit velocity, and spin rate, you pedestrian.

I've decided to train the file clerks to act like the ball girls at Wimbledon. They sprint to the cabinets and grab a file. Then they sprint back, stand a couple of steps away from me holding it high up in the air. Once I'm ready for it, I signal them and they place it on my desk. 

Then they bring me a towel.

i'm thinking of training my 7th graders to do this as well.

Still can't get over how tall these guys are.

The average height of the ball when Isner hits his serve is 10' 1" 

That's higher than a basketball hoop
