Tsonga, Raonic play longest set in history of Games
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) The longest set in Olympic history was played at Wimbledon on Tuesday when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France defeated Milos Raonic of Canada 6-3, 3-6, 25-23 in the second round.
Tsonga leaped and roared when he won on his fourth match point with a drop volley. Raonic congratulated Tsonga with a smile.
The previous record was 30 games in 2004 when Fernando Gonzalez defeated Taylor Dent in the third set, 16-14, to win the bronze medal.
The longest set in tennis history also was played at the All England Club - in 2010 when John Isner beat Nicolas Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set in the first round of Wimbledon.
