John Isner and Nicholas Mahut played for 11 hours and 5 minutes over 3 days – a total of 183 games! They served 215 aces between them, before Isner eventually won 70-68 in the 5th set – the longest set in Grand Slam tennis history – 8 hours and 11 minutes – 138 games!! The players hit a total of 490 winners!! The match was played in exemplary spirit by 2 young tennis warriors. What focus, courage, mental fortitude and stamina! What a great match! They deserve their place in tennis history!
One thought on “The Longest Match and Set in Grand Slam History!!”
What a great match! A wonderful advertisement for the game. However, I don’t think that the Grand Slam records set for the longest set, the longest match, the most aces, the most winners, etc. will ever be rivalled or broken. An unbelievable achievement by Isner and Mahut!
