The longest match. And counting.
The match between American John Isner and Frenchman Nicolas Mahut, in the first round at Wimbledon, became the longest in history. But he longest match in tennis history is not over yet. The current score between Isner and Mahut is 64 36 67 76 and 59-59 in the decisive set. The match was interrupted for the secon time because of darkness.
These records were already beaten in these match:
With ten hours of play, is already the longest match in tennis history. Just the decisive set alone (7h 6′) was far longer than the match that held this record until now (6h 33′).
Isner currently holds the new record for the most number of aces served by one player in a men’s singles match with 98 so far, followed by Mahut with 95 aces. Previous record belonged to Ivo Karlovic, with 78 aces.
The record for the longest set by number of games played in one match at Wimbledon is also beaten.
Maybe by the end of this marathon, they will beat another few more records.
