Isner vs. Mahut (http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-wimbledon-longest-match,0,6394160.story) - Just give both a trophy already!
I've never seen two men so equally matched. They have broken all records and continue to battle in the third day of competition.

I know, that was amazing. I watched the end of it. I'd never seen anything like that before.

There is another similar thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=947192) about this, by the way :)

John Isner defeats Nicolas Mahut, winning the fifth set, 70-68, in a first-round match that lasts 11 hours 5 minutes.

Whew! :eek:

That was amazing. Surely it's a completely freak occurrence, will never happen again... or will it? Bet the guy who's lined up to play the winner is delighted. They'll be knackered :p

John Isner just lost in straight sets in the second round. The guy had nothing left, as expected.
