ToE readers will not be surprised to hear that Isner and Mahut have been drawn together once again in the first round of Wimbledon.
Isner and Mahut are perfectly balanced yin-yang anti-doppelgangers who, since they 'found' each other in last year's impossible tennis match, have been living together in a wooden hut high in the Himalayas, where they spend their days playing out endless chess stalemates and drawn games of noughts-and-crosses.
According to The Times on Saturday, the odds on Isner and Mahut being drawn together again, taking into account Isner's seeding last year, were 1 in 13,871.
But on ToE, we know that the Fates do not play dice. The odds were, of course, 1 in 1.
