A Never Ending Game!

It was during the 2004 Tennis French Open when Fabrice Santoro beat Arnaud Clement 6-4, 6-3, 6-7, 3-6, 16-14. The match which took place for 6 hours and 33 minutes was considered the longest tennis match ever until day before yesterday.

Wimbledon 2010 was in progress on 23rd of June, when John Isner faced Nicolas Mahut. They had been playing a grueling match for 10 hours and the score-card displayed as 6-4, 3-6, 6-7, 7-6, 59-59. The day grew dark and the match was said to continue the next day (yesterday). But the record was already made.

The match ended with the last set reading as 70-68 as John Isner moved on to the second round. The time read out as 11 hours 5 minutes - The Longest Ever.

A tribute to both Isner and Mahut for "The Greatest Game Ever Played"!
