It’s not often you see a shot in tennis get a whopping 4.7 seconds of hangtime, but that’s exactly what happened with this ****** from Andy Murray yesterday at the U.S. Open. The ball was up in the air so long Murray and his opponent both had time to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, eat them, then wash their hands before resuming play. Miraculously, Murray was still able to win the point after the ball came down in Denis Istomin’s half. Murray, the reigning U.S. Open champ, went on to defeat Istomin and advance to the quarterfinals. No word on if he plans to make the eephus a regular thing.

NEW YORK (AP) — The earliest real signs of trouble for Andy Murray came in the 10th game of his U.S. Open quarterfinal. For 22 points stretched over 15 excruciating minutes Thursday, Murray’s body language was as poor as his play.

Andy Murray defeated the French tennis player Michael Llodra in straight during the first round of the US Open, 6-2, 6-4. After a length rain delay, and with Murray two points away from winning the match, Llondra decided to mess around and serve it underhand to the Scotsman. With Murray standing as far back as he was, it probably was a good play by Llodra, even if he lost the point.
