3 day marathon comes to an end

Towering American John Isner beat Nicolas Mahut in a 3 day marathon match lasting 11hrs 3 mins. The last set  was over 500 minutes and the classic score was 80-78. 193 aces overall with Isner serving 106 of them was included.

I wonder how he’ll last.

    The Wimbledon organizers should have let him have a rest, he lost the next game!

    What is the longest match you have played in?

      I think they didn`t let him have a rest because they already organized everything before the match and it will be difficult to change it. Also people already bought the tickets and it will be confusing to change all the tickets. Another interesting thing is that both overall and the fifth set Nicolas Mahut won more points but John Isner won the most important, the last point.

        1 point difference only.

      My longest is 4 hours+.

      The game lasted 3 days. If they let him have a rest, they would have to change all 128 players’ schedules which is unfair.

        I nearly died.
