    None of these tennis matches is too long, imo. On the other hand, imo, every basketball game ever played is far far too long for me. That's being a fan of some things and not others. :)

    Jakob earns another PB, 3:30.16, with his 2nd at Lausanne (Filip 'merely' 3:30.82 for 4th in this contest).
