Default Longest Tennis Match In History; Isner and Mahut.

At 4:30 GMT, John Isner and Nicholas Mahut are still tied at 67-68 games on the fifth set after playing this one tennis match for 3 days making the total playing time of over 10 hours, 4 hours longer than the previous longest game. The last set alone has been going on longer than the longest match in history, breaking over 5 world records, these records will most likely never be broken again. This has been one of the world's most famous sporting events as these two players make history in this seemingly endless battle.

Im rooting for Isner but it looks like he's going to tire out before Mahut. Has anyone else been watching this since the start?

Yeah, Isner won it 70-68 in the end.

I was favouring Mahut because he was the underdog. Plus he had to serve to stay in the match 63 times. But I am pleased for Isner that he managed to won. They both dererve great respect.

They will proabably never see 5 set matches in the same way again.
