The Longest Match Ever


American John Isner and France's Nicolas Mahut took part in an epic three-day battle at Wimbledon, with Isner finally prevailing 6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 70-68. The first-round match, which was twice suspended because of darkness, lasted 11 hours, five minutes -- with the fifth set taking 8 hours, 11 minutes alone. The unbelievable showdown shattered a number of records; Isner finished with 112 aces, and Mahut had 103, with both totals eclipsing the sport's previous high of 78.
